Problem with SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR

Good morning

I have a chart in which I show all the printing expenses that my company has since January 2020.

I would like to calculate the total for the same period (January-June) but last year.

Using this formula still gives me error.

Total previous year period = CALCULATE(SUM('Printer Expenses'[Total(€)]),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Calendar[Date]))
Can anyone help me?
Thank you!

I'm sorry but I don't calculate it well either, it gives me the total of the previous year but not as I want, from January to June.

Does anyone know how it works?

Hi @Syndicate_Admin 

 

What visuals do you put this measure in? Measures are calculated according to the context they are in, so we need to take care of the effect other columns in the same visual may have.

@Syndicate_Admin ,

This seems like fine

Total previous year period = CALCULATE(SUM('Printer Expenses'[Total(€)]),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Calendar[Date]))

 

try like Total previous year period = CALCULATE(SUM('Printer Expenses'[Total(€)]),dateadd(Calendar[Date],-1,year))
