Trying to pull data from Current Year and Year ago using Date Column

Hello There,

I have product images of ads at a YYYY-MM-DD level, and I am trying to use the date column filter to select a week such as "6/11/2023" but then have the option of filtering between "Current Year" and "Year Ago".

Product ImageDate
http://productimage1.com6/11/2023
http://productimage2.com6/11/2023
http://productimage3.com6/12/2022
http://productimage4.com6/12/2022
http://productimage5.com6/12/2022

 

The purpose of this is to have 2 image grids. The top will show the "Product Image" from the Ads for the current year filtered to date "6/11/2023" and the bottom image grid will show the "Product Images" from the same week year ago.

Hi @UKFan12 ,

 

Here's my solution.

You can create a calendar table for filtering date and create two measures for filtering images.

Calendar Table:

Calendar = ADDCOLUMNS(CALENDAR(DATE(2023,6,1),DATE(2023,6,30)),"WeekNum",WEEKNUM([Date],2),"Year",YEAR([Date]))

Note that there's no relationship between tables.

Two measures:

Current Year Filter = IF(MAX('Table'[Date])=SELECTEDVALUE('Calendar'[Date]),1)
Year Ago Filter = 
var _day1=MAX('Table'[Date])
var _weeknum1=WEEKNUM(_day1,2)
var _year1=YEAR(_day1)
var _day2=MAX('Calendar'[Date])
var _weeknum2=WEEKNUM(_day2,2)
var _year2=YEAR(_day2)
return IF(_weeknum1=_weeknum2&&_year1=_year2-1,1)

Put Current Year Filter measure into visual-level filter of the visual called Current Year and put Year Ago Filter measure into visual-level filter of the visual called Year Ago. Both set up show items when the value is 1.

Create a slicer with dates from the calendar. When you filter date such as "6/11/2023", below is the result.
