SamePeriodLastYear YTD -1 year Issue! help!

Hi guys,

I can't seem to wrap my head around this issue of getting last year YTD sales volume. 

Currently i have the sales volume from January 2023 to August 2023, and would like to compare it against January 2022 to August 2022. (But the issue is i cant seem to get the January 2022 - August 2022, at least not without hardcording)

I've tried Using a filter that filters my dimension date <= Max(FactSalesVolume.Date) with the Max(DimDate.Year) -1  , however it is currently showing blank. 

Could someone help me on this please thanks.

 Hi  @Jared__ 

1. Create a date table using the function CalendarAuto()

2. Create a measure with the following DAX code

 

YTD SamePeriodLastYear =
VAR YTD_Value =
    CALCULATE ( SUM ( [SalesVolume] )DATESYTD ( 'Calendar'[Date].[Date] ) )
VAR MaxDate =
    CALCULATE ( MAX ( 'DateTable'[Date] )ALL ( 'DateTable'[Date] ) )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        [YTD_Value];
        SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR (
            INTERSECT (
                VALUES ( 'DateTable'[Date].[Date] );
                DATESBETWEEN ( 'DateTable'[Date].[Date]; BLANK ()MaxDate )
            )
        )
    )
