Calculation for Last month Same Period

Hi All,

I am trying to calculate a measure for last month same period i.e. if today is 7.2.2019, I want to calculate sum(sales) for last month up to the 2nd day i.e. 6/2/2019. I have researched this and found a formula on most of the posts that I am trying to use but it doesn't give me the correct value.

Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Formula: Last MTD Sales=
CALCULATE(
Sum('Main'[Sales]),
DATEADD( DATESMTD( Dates[Date] ), -1, MONTH )

Re: Calculation for Last month Same Period

Hi,

Ensure that there is a relationship between the Date column of the Main Table to the Date column of the Calendar Table.  Drag the Date column from the Calednar Table to your slicer/visual and select today's date in the slicer/filter.  Write this measure

Last MTD Sales = CALCULATE(Sum('Main'[Sales]),DATESBETWEEN(Dates[Date],EOMONTH(MIN(Dates[Date]),-2)+1,EDATE(MIN(Dates[Date]),-1))

Hope this helps.

Totalmtd(dates[date],Sum('Main'[Sales]),
DATEADD( Dates[Date],-1,MONTH))

Re: Calculation for Last month Same Period

Hi @AJthacker ,

 

The syntax of the measure seems ok but without any additional information is difficult to understand what you need and what is the final result you are looking for.

 

Can you share a sample data and expected result?
