## DAX for YoY rate calculation

Hi everybody,

I currently have a table where I want to see the YoY growth rate for different locations. The date I have been using is not continuous or has an specific pattern, so when I tried doing YoY calculation I always received the following error: "Function DATEADD expects a contiguous selection when the date column is not unique, has gaps...". Is there perhaps a way to calculate YoY rate for no continous dates??

The table I'm working with looks like this, where Nod is a location and the amount per year describes the sales:

What I would like to have is the percent difference table calculation that you can find in Tableau:

The measures I used were:

``````YOY diff =
VAR previousDateWithPrice =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'capa'[Dates]),
FILTER ( ALL ( 'capa' ), 'capa'[Sales] > 0 && 'capa'[Dates] < MAX ( 'capa'[Dates] ) )
)
VAR previousPrice =
CALCULATE (
SUM ('capa'[Dates] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( 'capa' ), 'capa'[Dates] = previousDateWithPrice )
)
RETURN
DIVIDE ( SUM ( 'capa'[Sales] ) - previousPrice, previousPrice )``````

According to your description, if you just want to show the annual growth rate, here's my solution.

This is my sample data.

I modify your formula like this:

``````YOY diff =
VAR previousDateWithPrice =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'capa'[Dates].[Year] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( 'capa' ),
'capa'[Sales] > 0
&& 'capa'[Dates].[Year] < MAX ( 'capa'[Dates].[Year] )
)
)
VAR previousPrice =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'capa'[Sales] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( 'capa' ),
'capa'[Nod] = MAX ( 'capa'[Nod] )
&& 'capa'[Dates].[Year] = previousDateWithPrice
)
)
RETURN
DIVIDE ( SUM ( 'capa'[Sales] ) - previousPrice, previousPrice )
``````

Get the correct result.

I attach my sample below for reference.
