Error in SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR

When adding the following measure:

 

valor_líquido_ano_anterior = CALCULATE(SUM('order'[valor_líquido]);SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('calendário'[data]))

to the matrix:

I get the error:

 

Capturar.JPG

 

The field 'calendario'[data] is a date field calculated with:

CALENDAR (DATE (2012; 1; 1); DATE (2017; 12; 31))

So, it is contiguous and it is in Calendar table, which is related with table 'order'.

 

So, why do I get this error? 

It only showed up in the May-2017 version of PBI Desktop.

i think the issue might be the bidirectional relationship, if you change it to single, does it still give you teh same issue?
