Show average for same period last year

Hi all,

 

I wanted to see if there was a way to show what the average of last year was on a line graph.  So say the average for this graph below is the average of week 34 of 2018, is there any way i can show the average of week 34 for 2017 either through a line or a tooltip

Hi @thenovice,

 

I made one sample for your reference.

 

1. Create a date table and create relationship between fact table and it.

 

Table = CALENDARAUTO()

2. Create the measures as below.

 

sumsa = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[sales]),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Table1[date]))
avesamp = SUMX(ALLSELECTED(Table1),[sumsa])/CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table1),FILTER(ALLSELECTED(Table1),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Table1[date])))

For more details, please check the pbix as attached.

 

Regards,

Frank

Thank you so much! Will this work if i add it in as a tool tip, because i have a line graph already.

Should be able to use a measure in your tooltip. See if my Time Intelligence the Hard Way provides a way of accomplishing what you are going for.

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

Currently trying this, thank you very much by the way. What would i put at the end of the measure where it say "[Value]"
