## Same Peeriod Last Year Filtered by Many Columns

Hi,

I am trying to calculate the sales same time last year filtered by about 20 columns. What is the best way to do this? I been using caculate sum, sameperiodlastyear, and allexcept (with the 20 columns in the allexcept), but the calculation came out incorrect. I thought perhaps of duplicating the table and then instead of allexcept use filters, but I am sure there is an easier way.

Note: unfortunately due to data privacy I can't show the formula or data. The formula I wrote is something like

CALCULATE(SUM(sales),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(date), ALLEXCEPT(Table1,column a, column b, c, d, etc.).

Thank you!

Why you need multiple allexcept

For multiple allexcept refer : https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/ALLEXCEPT-in-a-multitable-setup/td-p/403205

For YTD and LYTD you can use following with date calendar

``````YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(('Date'[Date]),"12/31"))
This Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD((ENDOFYEAR('Date'[Date])),"12/31"))

Last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year),"12/31"))
Last YTD complete Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(ENDOFYEAR(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year)),"12/31"))
Last to last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-2,Year),"12/31"))

Year behind Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year))
``````

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :

@amitchandak I am having problems replicating that.

How would you do it with the made-up data posted?

@Greg_Deckler below is the emulated data. I need to get the sales for the same time last year filtered by the different columns (i.e. product, currency, country, etc.)

Thank you so much for your help!

 Country Product Currency Purchase Month Sales USA A USD 1/1/2020 3000 USA A USD 1/1/2019 2000 France B EUR 1/1/2020 1000 France B EUR 1/1/2019 500 USA B EUR 1/1/2020 1500 USA B EUR 1/1/2019 4000 France C EUR 1/1/2020 750 France C EUR 1/1/2019 200

@amitchandak thank you for your response and work.

If you had to create another column in the table called Sales LY rather than measure would you do it differently?
