Variance compared to sum of previous date

Hello all, 

 

Would really appreciate your help.. I have a complex table - but see simplified issue here: 

 

Date Quantity 
15/05/20215
15/05/20214
15/05/20211
15/05/20211
15/05/20211
15/05/20211
15/05/20215
15/05/202155
15/05/20215
16/06/202122
16/06/20211
16/06/20211
16/06/20211
16/06/20211
30/07/202145
30/07/20211
30/07/20211
30/07/20211
30/07/202155
30/07/202150
30/07/20211
30/07/20211

 

I would like to see a % variance (in a matrix) - which would be as below: 

May Jun Jul 
7826155
 -67%496%

 

I would un-select the Month of May - as this month has nothing to compare with.

June is (26-78)/78= -67%

July is (155-26)/26 = +496% 

 

I have researched everywhere & tried countless Dax - nothing seems to work. Thank you in advance.

Hi, @Jay_Mitchel ;

You could create a column to show month by date; then create a measure as follows:

a)create a column

Mon = FORMAT([Date ],"mmm")

b)create a measure

variance =
VAR _value =
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( [Quantity] ),
        FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), MONTH ( [Date ] ) = MONTH ( MAX ( [Date ] ) ) - 1 ))
RETURN
    IF (
        ISINSCOPE ( [Month] ),
        SUM ( [Quantity] ),
        FORMAT ( DIVIDE ( SUM ( [Quantity] ) - _value, _value ), "0%" ))

c)change the subtotals label:

The final output is shown below:

Hello, 

Still some kinks to work out, but your method appears perfect. 

 

Just one question, what is the empty Month column & why do you reference it in your Dax?

Hi, @Jay_Mitchel ;

Because my dax needs to be based on a column(ISINSCOPE() need), but there is no suitable column in your example, so I created an empty column, if there are other columns, it is fine. Just here for the sake of beauty I created an empty column.
