Transitioning from Tableau - calculated Measure

I'm having alot of trouble with this one. In Tableau, I have a measure called "% Difference" - calculated as "ZN([%Pos Response]) - LOOKUP(ZN([%Pos Response]), -1)". This allows me, when I put Years in the columns area, to see the %Difference by year (there are thousands of rows, but only 3 years right now). The -1 telling it to compare with the previous year.

 

I cannot figure out how to transition this to PowerBi. 

%Pos Response is a calculated measure I've created in PowerBi that is calculated as follows (using two calculated columns): divide(sum([Count Positive]), sum(Data[PosNeg])).

 

Do people have ideas on how this can transition to PowerBI? There are a number of different values that I am needing this %Difference for, including some where I am hoping to drill down from "Question Group" to "Question"

Hi @daniel_krantz_4 

 

Maybe you can try this:

Here I create a measure:

% Difference =
VAR _currentYear =
    YEAR ( MAX ( 'Table'[Date] ) )
VAR _previousYear =
    CALCULATE (
        MAX ( 'Table'[Date] ),
        FILTER ( ALLSELECTED ( 'TABLE' ), YEAR ( 'TABLE'[Date] ) < _currentYear )
    )
VAR CurrentYearValue =
    CALCULATE (
        [%Pos Response],
        FILTER ( ALLSELECTED ( 'Date' ), YEAR ( 'Table'[Date] ) = _currentYear )
    )
VAR PreviousYearValue =
    CALCULATE (
        [%Pos Response],
        FILTER ( ALLSELECTED ( 'Date' ), YEAR ( 'Table'[Date] ) = _previousYear )
    )
RETURN
    IF (
        NOT ISBLANK ( CurrentYearValue ),
        ( CurrentYearValue - PreviousYearValue ) / PreviousYearValue,
        BLANK ()
    )

 You can change the 'Table'[Date] into your own table's Date column.

Thank you! I made some small changes to fit my data and realized I didn't need the divide statement, but this works! Here was the final code:

 

%Difference =
VAR _currentYear = MAX('Data'[Year])
VAR _previousYear =CALCULATE(MAX('Data'[Year]),
FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Data', 'Data'[QGroup], 'Data'[Question]),'Data'[Year] < _currentYear))

VAR CurrentYearValue =CALCULATE([%Pos Response],
FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Data', 'Data'[QGroup], 'Data'[Question]),'Data'[Year] = _currentYear))
VAR PreviousYearValue =CALCULATE([%Pos Response],
FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Data', 'Data'[QGroup], 'Data'[Question]),'Data'[Year] = _previousYear))
RETURN
IF(NOT ISBLANK(CurrentYearValue),CurrentYearValue - PreviousYearValue, BLANK())
