Calculate dynamic %change based on date slicer

Hi All,


We having Total sales Column in the database and need to find a %change in sales on the period selected.


I solve this using the following calculation,

This year Sale = calculate(sum([total sale),filter(Item,Item[Timestamp].[Year]=2019))

Last Year Sale = CALCULATE(SUM([total sale]),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Item[Timestamp].[Date]))


But I need to find the dynamic %change, which depends on Date slicers selection, we use Relative Date slicer in the report,

So if we select last 1 Week on date slicer -> %change if for this selected week with last week,

if we select last 1 Month on date slicer -> %change if for this selected Month with last Month, and so on.



Please Help,


Thanks in Advance.

HI @Anonymous 


Are you using a Date table?  or just the date column of your item table. 


In this instance (and almost always) a master calendar table will make the process much easier.

Hi @nhoward,


Thank you for the quick response and your precious time,


Yes I am using the date column of the item table, and thanks for your suggestion to use separate date table, but can you please provide the measures used for to calculate %change for dates selected in Relate Date Slicer
