Previous Month Showing Blank

Hi! I am new to dax and I can't figure out why neither of this measures are working. 

First measure:

PM Line_amt v2 = CALCULATE([Line_amt],PREVIOUSMONTH('Date'[Date]))

Second measure:

PM line_amt = 
SUMX (
    VALUES ( 'Date'[Calendar YearMonthNumber] ),
    VAR OffsetMonths = 1
    VAR MonthDays =
        CALCULATE ( VALUES ( 'Date'[Calendar MonthDays] ) )
    VAR SelectedDays =
        CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Date'[Date] ) )
    VAR PreviousMonthNumber = 'Date'[Calendar YearMonthNumber] - OffsetMonths
    VAR PreviousMonthFull =
        CALCULATE (
            [Line_amt],
            'Date'[Calendar YearMonthNumber] = PreviousMonthNumber,
            ALL ( 'Date' )
        )
    VAR DaysInMonthSelected =
        CALCULATETABLE ( VALUES ( 'Date'[Calendar DayOfMonthNumber] ) )
    VAR PreviousMonthPartial =
        CALCULATE (
            [Line_amt],
            'Date'[Calendar YearMonthNumber] = PreviousMonthNumber,
            DaysInMonthSelected,
            ALL ( 'Date' )
        )
    RETURN
        IF ( MonthDays = SelectedDays, PreviousMonthFull, PreviousMonthPartial )
)

I have an active relationship between fact table and dim date table:Untitled.png

Please help.

I realized, my measure was working. I just didnt have any date selected, so it wasnt showing previous month. I am closing my request. Thank you for you replay.

Hi @Dmoreira ,

Why do you say your measure not work?

More details will be much helpful.

If it is convenient, could you share some data sample which could reproduce your scenario and your desired output so that we could help further on it?

Best  Regards,

Cherry
