YTD LY, MTD, YTD Chart

Hi, 

 

How can i display PY YTD (Previous Year YTD) as ONE bar at the beginning with axis label as "PY YTD" and YTD_Yield which is current year YTD after Dec as one bar.

 

I managed to get one consolidated value of PY YTD as shown below.

Hi @PowerBuddy1,

I'd like to suggest you write a measure formula with an if statement to check the current category and redirect the calculations to different expressions and replace the raw table field to use on the chart.

Using the SELECTEDVALUE function in DAX - SQLBI

Measure =
VAR currMonth =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( Table[Month] )
RETURN
    IF (
        currMonth = "Jan",
        'expression1',
        IF ( currMonth = "Feb", 'expression2', SUM ( Table[values] ) )
    )

@PowerBuddy1 , I doubt LYTD formula, can you share that

 

YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD('Date'[Date],"12/31"))
Last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year),"12/31"))

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.
