Previous Day Sales in Column

Hi all,


How can I get Previous Day Sales in a Sales Transaction table?


Tried below but its giving incorrect result. 



Column 2 = 
VAR _Yesterday = DATEADD ( 'calendar'[Date], -1, DAY )
    CALCULATE (  SUM ( [SalespersonIncentive] ),
        FILTER (
            'Daily Sales Transaction by employee',
                'Daily Sales Transaction by employee'[billdate]= _Yesterday

Hi  @PowerDigitize_1 ,


May I ask if the incorrect totals you are referring to are the incorrect totals for the Total rows that are placed on the form visual?


Measure follows the context of the "Total" row and is calculated in that context. Therefore, using a measure in a column of a table visualization may have unexpected values in the "Total" column.


You can use the following measure, using the IF()+HASONEVALUE() function, to determine if it is Total, and if it is, you can calculate it according to your own needs, such as Average, Sum, etc.

You can try using the following measure.

Replace Table[OREDER] with the first column of your table Visual, and [ROTACION_PROYECTADA] with the name of your metric

Measure =
var _table=SUMMARIZE('Table','Table'[ORDER],"Value",[ROTACION_PROYECTADA])


Best Regards,

Liu Yang
