Hi @UditJ ,

The data for 2019 does not affect the use of PREVIOUSMONTH() functions.

You need a calendar table to connect to the main table, use the month column of the calendar table, and use

PREVIOUSMONTH('Calendar'[Date]) to return the previous months' data.

``Measure = CALCULATE([CTR],PREVIOUSMONTH('Calendar'[Date]))``
