Good morning,


I'm wondering if it's possible to have % difference columns in a switch function.


I have this switch function which is returning yearly sales? I would like to add 2 columns showing the % diff from 2020 & 2019.

@brinky , if you have date table and year week coming from there. Last year same day week is 1 year behind , which can be used


Year behind Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),dateadd('Date'[Date],-364,Day))

Thanks Amit for your prompt reply, maybe I didn't explain myself well.


This is what I'm trying to add to my yearly sales.

@brinky , If year is column(used in matrix column, you need a hybrid table). Not a direct option, you need alternatives 


Otherwise, use [Measure] and [Change %]  measure as values



if you are looking for a Hybrid display with Matrix Column and measure

vote for Hybrid Table


Thanks Amit, this looks interesting.


As a superuser 😉 just for curiosity are there any altermatives?
