Hi! What formula can I apply to be able to compare the period 2019 with the period 2017 since with the measurement 

CALCULATE([VOTOS TOTALES],SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Calendario[Año]=2017)) it throws me an error.
Thank you so much!2021-07-05 23_16_19-RESULTADOS_ELECTORALES2019y2017_COMPARATIVO_v3 - Power BI Desktop.png

Hi @luistiscornia ,

 

The SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR function needs to reference a date/time column. You can try the following measure:

 

comparativa = 
CALCULATE(
    [VOTOS TOTALES], 
    FILTER(
        ALLSELECTED('Table'),
        'Table'[Year] = MAXX(
                            FILTER(
                                ALLSELECTED('Table'),
                                'Table'[Year] < MAX('Table'[Year])
                            ),
                            'Table'[Year]
                        )
    )
)

@luistiscornia , You want to compare two values selected in the year box?

 

example

 
measure 1=
VAR minDate = MINX( allselected('Calendar') , 'Calendar'[Year] )
VAR maxDate = MAXX(allselected('Calendar') , 'Calendar'[Year] )
RETURN
CALCULATE([VOTOS TOTALES], filter('Calendar', 'Calendar'[Year] =_max)) - CALCULATE([VOTOS TOTALES], filter('Calendar', 'Calendar'[Year] =_min))
