## Difference between two years

Hello,

I need to know how much the value changed on monthly basis. For example, if I select "Laundary", I like to view how much annual difference percentage was between 2017 and 2018. The question is how to calculate this "new measure"?

How can I show the monthly difference percent on top of each month on this bar chart?

I need this new measure get updated based on my selection from the slicers as well.

Many Thanks

Monthly Comparison

Hi @Alirezam ,

For your requirement, we could create the measure below to achieve it.

```Measure =
VAR minyear =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[Sales] ),
FILTER (
'Table1',
YEAR ( 'Table1'[Date] ) = YEAR ( MIN ( 'Table1'[Date] ) )
&& MONTH ( 'Table1'[Date] ) = MONTH ( MAX ( 'Table1'[Date] ) )
)
)
VAR maxyear =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[Sales] ),
FILTER (
'Table1',
YEAR ( 'Table1'[Date] ) = YEAR ( MAX ( 'Table1'[Date] ) )
&& MONTH ( 'Table1'[Date] ) = MONTH ( MAX ( 'Table1'[Date] ) )
)
)
RETURN
( maxyear - minyear ) / maxyear
```

Then we could create a line and clusterd column chart like below.

More details, please refer to my attachment.
