Calculate difference from previous month

I have the following table that looks as such

I am using the following formula to count all orders

 

numOrders = COUNTROWS(AllOrders)

I then calculate the total retailed orders based on whether there is a retail date

Total Retailed = CALCULATE (
    [numOrders],
      FILTER (
        'AllOrders',
        AND (
            NOT ( ISBLANK ( 'AllOrders'[RetailDate] ) ),
            DATEVALUE(AllOrders[RetailDate]) <= MAX ( BasicCalendarUS[DateKey] )
        )
    ))

I then calculate the total retailed orders year to date by using this formula

Total Retailed  YTD = CALCULATE (
    [Total Retailed],
    FILTER (
        'AllOrders',
        YEAR( 'AllOrders'[RetailDate] ) = YEAR( MAX ( BasicCalendarUS[DateKey] ) )
    )
)

Now what I want is to have it do a month over month calculation to see the difference. I am having trouble picking up a formula that looks to the previous month and subtracts it from the current month to give me the number. 

 

Below is a screenshot of what I am looking for. ( I left out some months for simplicity)

Any help would be greatly appreciated 

 

Thanks!

Re: Calculate difference from previous month

Hi @dkbollig,

 

In my opinion, you can use a calculate column to store the running total, then write a measure to get the running total of previous month and calculate the different between current value and previous.

Re: Calculate difference from previous month

@v-shex-msftSounds like the idea. I can't see any operations in there so that might be something to consider.
