Previous Quarter measure shows values which don't exist

Hello, 

 

I'm trying to write a measure which shows my values in the previous quarter compared with the date I select from my slicer.

 

The date in my slicer comes from a Calendar and it is in a relationship with my fact table in a 1:N relationship through the Date field. 

 

In my date field I have onyl two values:

30/09/2023

30/06/2023

 

In the visual I have two measure, a simple count of a field, and the previous quarter measure of that count. 

 

The latter works fine when I select 30/09/2023 and it correctly shows the values for the 30/06/2023. However, when I select 30/06/2023 instead of blank values (since I don't have 31/03/2023 in my datafield) the measure shows again the values for 30/06/2023. 

 

Any clue why this happens? 

 

Thank you

The second measure in the visual should be empty.

@MCacc What is your measure formula? Sorry, having trouble following, can you post sample data as text and expected output?
Not really enough information to go on, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.
