Sales comparison - current day sales with sales on same day last month

Hi,

 

Request your guidance to overcome this issue

My Boss wants to compare the sales of current day ( say 03rd September 2022 ) with sales of same date of last month ( i.e. 03rd August 2022).  I got a slicer for selecting the date, so if we select 03rd September 2022 it will show the sales for today but how can we display sales for the same day on last month ( 03rd August 2022).  We have to consider months with 31 days / 30 days etc.

 

kindly advice

 

regards,

dsmitha

@dsmitha Maybe: 

Measure = 
  VAR __Date = MAX('Table'[Date])
  VAR __EOLM = EOMONTH(__Date,-1)
  VAR __EOLMDay = DAY(__EOLM)
  VAR __Day = DAY(__Date)
  VAR __LMDay = IF(__EOLMDay < __Day, __Day, __EOLMDay)
  VAR __LMDate = DATE(YEAR(__EOLM),MONTH(__EOLM),__LMDay)
RETURN
  SUMX(FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table',[Date]=__LMDate),[Sales])

Hi,

If the date selected is July 31, 2022, then what would be the date of the "same day last month"?
