Measures to create dynamic visualisation that changes based on two run dates selected in filter



I am trying to create a Power BI visualisation that is able to provide (1) year on year and (2) daily movement in both value and % when I select different run dates from the filter. Basically the whole dataset will have a few run dates across few different years and I need to be able to compare them based on the selected run dates.

I have tried creating a new date table; to form the relationship to the main data table so that it can be used for filter but it doesn't seem to work. I am not sure how what kind of measures or how to approach it further so that this can be achieved. Would you be able to advise?


Below is an example of how the main data structure looks like.
