## Get Previous month's previous day

Good day,

I am currently working on a Day-on-Day comparison. I would like to create the following calculations:

1. Latest day of the current month Sales

2. Previous day of the current month Sales

3. Latest day of previous month Sales

4. Previous day of the previous month Sales

Kind Regards,

(1)You can use PREVIOUSDAY dax to calculate the sale for pervious day .

previous sales = CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[Sales]),PREVIOUSDAY('Table'[Date]))

(2)The latest day sale for current month

current month latest sales = CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[Sales]),FILTER('Table',max('Table'[Date])<=TODAY()))

(3)The latest day sale for previous month

previous month latest sales = CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[Sales]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Date]<=EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)))

The final result is as shown :

I have attached my pbix file ,you can refer to it .

Hey @SaneleZwane ,

you can get the dates:

1. With the function EOMONTH

2. Take the value from 1. and do -1

3. Use EOMONTH for the PREVIOUSMONTH

4. Take the day from 3. and do -1

If you need any help please let me know.

Hi @selimovd I am relatively new on Power Bi so scripting is not that good...do you mind writing out the actual syntax?

Thanks

Hey @SaneleZwane ,

Do you want these dates as a calculated column or as a measure? And what do you want to do with this date? For example if you want to use it as a slicer you need it as a column, etc.

Hi @selimovd ,

I need them as measures. I managed to create measure for the current month. The issue is on the previous month last day and previous months previous date. Please see screenshot below and the syntax used.

Sales'[Transaction Date]=max('Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date])-1))

Hey @SaneleZwane ,

try the following measures:

For 1:

``````Latest day of the current month Sales =
VAR vCurrentDate = MAX( 'Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date] )
RETURN
CALCULATE(
MAX( 'Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date] ),
YEAR( vCurrentDate ) = YEAR( 'Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date] ) && MONTH( vCurrentDate ) = MONTH( 'Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date] )
)``````

For 2:

``Previous day of the current month Sales = [Latest day of the current month Sales] - 1``

For 3:

``````Latest day of previous month Sales =
VAR vCurrentDate = EOMONTH( MAX( 'Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date] ), -1)
RETURN
CALCULATE(
MAX( 'Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date] ),
YEAR( vCurrentDate ) = YEAR( 'Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date] ) && MONTH( vCurrentDate ) = MONTH( 'Daily Funeral Cover Sales'[Transaction Date] )
)``````

``Previous day of the previous month Sales = [Latest day of previous month Sales] - 1``

If you need any help please let me know.
