How to get previous month name on the card when I select any particular month from slicer.

Selected Month = SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date].[Month])

The above expression returns the current month selected by the slicer in a card as dynamic text. ex. If a user selects December it will change the text to display December.

 

But I want previous month eg. when user select January it should display December. 

 

Please help me. 

Thanks in advance!

It's not going to be what you're looking for exactly, but I operate on functions like below regarding formatting and editing dates.

 

FORMAT(DATE(YEAR(SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date])),MONTH(SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date]))-1,DAY(SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date]))),"MMMM")
 
I'm new here and unsure of that solution, hope it helps though.
 
Best,
