Rolling sum not calculating. Seems my date table is broken in some way

I have written the following calculation 

 

 

 

Annualized Revenue by Month = 
                            CALCULATE([Annual Revenue], 
                                       DATESINPERIOD('Calendar Lookup'[Date], 
                                       MAX('Calendar Lookup'[Date]),
                                       -12,
                                       MONTH))

 

 

 

However I am not getting the expected result. The column is entirely blank.

My data model is set up as shown

Both date data types are the same in both columns

 

 

Now the tricky part is if I mark my Calendar Lookup table as the Date table my calculation works but this will break all my other functions that use the date tableWhat is happening here?

So I figured it out after tweaking it some. I am not sure why but I also have to include the year as part of the rows in the matrix.

 

I thouhgt the filter context would already be evident as the start date has a year is that incorrect?

Hi @TCFPA ,

 

If your date table contains multiple years of data and you do not provide the year in the current context, this is likely to cause inaccurate calculations.

Could you tell me if your problem has been solved? If it is, kindly Accept it as the solution. More people will benefit from it. Or if you are still confused about it, please provide me with more details about your table and your problem or share me with your pbix file after removing sensitive data.

Hi @TCFPA ,

 

The table that DATESINPERIOD() returned can only contain dates stored in the dates column. So, for example, if the dates column starts from July 1, 2017, and the start_date value is July 1, 2016, the returned table will start from July 1, 2017.

Besides, the relationship between LeadSquared and Calendar Lookup is single, please try to change it to both. Otherwise, if you use 'LeadSquared'[Date] as date field, MAX('Calendar Lookup'[Date]) will always return the max value of all date.

 

If these methods could not work, please provide me with more details about your table and your problem or share me with your pbix file after removing sensitive data.
