Month over Month of running totals (cumulative)

Hello Guys,

 

everyone knows the quick measure of running totals or the DAX function YTD. I want to calculate the month over month change of a running total. 

 

Is there a best practice dax expression?

I have found it out myself. It seems to be working. Here the resolution

 

1. Step: Sum the initial variable "Sales"
sales = SUM( [Sales] )

2. Step: Calculate the cumulated value of "sales"
sales **bleep** =
CALCULATE(
	[Sales];
	FILTER(
		ALLSELECTED([Date]);
		ISONORAFTER([Date]; MAX([Date]); DESC)
	)
)

3. Step: Calculate the percentage difference between 1 and 2
Sales **bleep** MoM% = 
DIVIDE(
    [Sales] ;
    [Sales **bleep**] - [Sales] ;
    0
)
