YTD sales show all for last year



I am trying to make a comparison of sales using the YTD function in PowerBi desktop. I have both the DAX-formulas working for the current year and last year I am however stumbling upon a problem. The table I use to show the data only shows the sales of last year up to the current date. I want it to show all data for the remaining months(july - december). Is there anyway to do this?

It sounds like your function is calculating based on TODAY() showing all totals up to todays date. If you want to include remaining months you will need to change TODAY() to 12/31/2019.


If you post your DAX it might be easier to explain.

Thank you @Anonymous  for your reply. For the current year sals this is the formula;

Sales (current year) = CALCULATE([Total Sales];DATESBETWEEN(Datetable[Date];DATE(YEAR(TODAY());1;1);TODAY()))
For the last year:
Sales (last year) = CALCULATE([Total sales];DATESBETWEEN(Datetable[Date];DATE(YEAR(today())-1;1;1);DATE(YEAR(today())-1;MONTH(TODAY());DAY(TODAY()))))

@Anonymous ,


You just need to create an additional measure using DAX as below:

Remaining =
    [Total Sales];
    DATESBETWEEN ( Datetable[Date]; TODAY (); DATE ( YEAR ( TODAY ); 12; 31 ) )

Hello @v-yuta-msft ,


Thanks for your reply. However I get an error on the first TODAY (); in the formula. 

@Anonymous ,


What does the error message say? Could you please share more details?
