Problem with Variation measure

Hello everyone.

I have a Date table called Dim_Date2 and it doesn't connected to my Fact table Sales for others reasons. So, I have to filter date in each measure.

I have the next measure to calculate Sales and Previous Sales:

 

Sales:=CALCULATE(SUM(Fact_Sales[SalesAmount]), FILTER(Fact_Sales,Fact_Sales[SalesDate]>=[MinimumDate]&&Fact_Sales[SalesDate]<=[MaximumDate])) 

Previous Sales:=CALCULATE(Fact_Sales[Sales],DATEADD(Dim_Date2[Date],-[SelectedDays],DAY))
 
MaximumDate:MAX(Dim_Date2[Date]) 

MinimumDate:MIN(Dim_Date2[Date]) 

SelectedDays:CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Fact_Sales[KeySalesDate]),FILTER(Fact_Sales,Fact_Sales[SalesDate]>=[MinimumDate]&&Fact_Sales[SalesDate]<=[MaximumDate])) 

 


And the variation is the subtraction of both.

Previous Sales measure works if I select an specific date, but if I select the same date with a Year, month and day... it doesn't work .

I hope you can help me.

Hi

You can try:  dateadd(LASTDATE(Dim_Date2[Date]),-1,day)

 Previous Sales = calculate([Sales],dateadd(LASTDATE(Dim_Date2[Date]),-1,day))
