I have this table below. I'd like to create another column similar to Total Invoice with the same data for the previous year. I am not sure if I need to create a date table or simply use a formula for the date range I am looking for?
From what I've read so far, theres a previous year function (DAX) except i think this requires a unique date table if Im not mistaken. So i am not sure what would be the best approach.
I've tried the following formula with no success as I keep getting an error:
It semi worked. some of the values were spot on while others were a bit off. One of the big issues now is that I know I have values in the PY (for different job descriptions) that I dont have in the Total Invoice (this year), but they are not showing up. I believe these values arent showing up because the formula is only returning prior year values for what is on the existing table. Not sure how to resolve that but I am trying to do some research on creating a date table to see if that will solve my issues. I sincierly appreciate the help, and if you have any other suggestions I am all ears. I am closer today than I was yesterday, so that some progress!
