Need to calculate percentage of previous month with text as slicer

I have an requirement to show percentage of previous month in graph.Where my slicer is text format which shows mothly or weekly .Show percentage for both weekly and monthly as well.

Current month=sum(column)

Prev month=Calculate(sum(column),previous month(Date,-1,month)

But in this how can i give my date format which is in text .but based on monthly and weekly visual is changing so no issue in it.

@rajkarthik2607 , Make sure you are using date table in measure, slicer and axis of visual

 

examples

 

MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD('Date'[Date]))
last MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,MONTH)))
last month Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),previousmonth('Date'[Date]))
MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD('Date'[Date]))
last MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,MONTH)))
last month Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),previousmonth('Date'[Date]))
next month Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),nextmonth('Date'[Date]))
