Current Month, Previous Months Counts Now Not Working

I can only assume this stopped working now that we are into a new year. It no longer calculates PREVIOUS MONTH, 2 MONTHS AGO, 3 MONTHS AGO, ...

 

It does calculate TOTAL COUNT THIS MONTH:

Total Count This Month =
COUNTX(
FILTER(
'_Report_All Logins',
AND(
MONTH([Activity_Date])=MONTH(TODAY()),
YEAR([Activity_Date])=YEAR(TODAY())
)
),
'_Report_All Logins'[dbo_USER_ACTIVITY_ID]
)

 

 

Here is what I have for PREVIOUS MONTH that no longer works:

Total Count Last Month =
COUNTX(
FILTER(
'_Report_All Logins',
MONTH([Activity_Date])=MONTH(TODAY()) -1
),
'_Report_All Logins'[dbo_USER_ACTIVITY_ID]
)
 
Any ideas?
 
Thanks in advance

Hi @pbeeyeqs ,

 

quick and dirty.

 

Total Count Last Month =
COUNTX(
FILTER(
'_Report_All Logins',
MONTH([Activity_Date])= IF(MONTH(TODAY()) = 1, 12, MONTH(TODAY()) -1)
),
'_Report_All Logins'[dbo_USER_ACTIVITY_ID]
)

Hi @pbeeyeqs ,

 

another dirty hack..

 

Total Count Last Month =
COUNTX(
FILTER(
'_Report_All Logins',
MONTH(DATEADD([Activity_Date],1, MONTH))=MONTH(TODAY())
),
'_Report_All Logins'[dbo_USER_ACTIVITY_ID]
)

 

Total Count 2 Months Ago =
COUNTX(
FILTER(
'_Report_All Logins',
MONTH(DATEADD([Activity_Date],2, MONTH))= MONTH(TODAY())
),
'_Report_All Logins'[dbo_USER_ACTIVITY_ID]
)

That seems to work for previous month. How would it then figure 2 months ago, 3 months ago, ...

 

I have below for 2 months ago, but it doesn't seem to be correct:

 

Total Count 2 Months Ago =
COUNTX(
FILTER(
'_Report_All Logins',
MONTH([Activity_Date])= IF(MONTH(TODAY()) = 1, 12, MONTH(TODAY()) -2)
),
'_Report_All Logins'[dbo_USER_ACTIVITY_ID]
)
