## Calculating current and prior year quarter data with separate slicer for month and year

Hi Everyone,

I'm very new to Power BI, appreciate it if you could help me find the solution. My scenario is I need to calculate the total sum of a measure for the current and previous year quarter but the problem is there are two separate slicers one for MONTH and other for YEAR. So the requirement is when a user selects any month and year in the slicer the total sum would be the sum for the quarter to which the month falls to.

Hi,

I suggest using the PARALLELPERIOD function in DAX.

Check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

QTY ALL in the same Q : =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( Data[QTY] ), PARALLELPERIOD ( 'Calendar'[Date], 0, QUARTER ) )

If this post helps, then please consider accept it as the solution to help other members find it faster, and give a big thumbs up.

Best regards, JiHwan Kim

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your response it's working fine for current year quarter but for previous year quarter it is not working. please see below snip.

For example if i select year 2022 and month Jul, i should be able to see current and previous year quartern i.e. ( Jul, Aug and Sep) quarter value for 2022 and 2021.below formula is not working for QTD PY

QTD PY- CALCULATE ( SUM ( Data[QTY] ), PARALLELPERIOD ( 'Calendar'[Date], -1, QUARTER ) )

Hi,

I think your measure is showing the previous quarter, not the previous year.
