HELP ME PLEASE

Hello, I need support with a problem.
I have the sum of 2019 sales per month, but I need to make a comparison with the sum of 2020 sales for the current month.
That is, if today is 10/8/2020, in my 2019 graph it should show the sum of sales per month but in the month of October it should only be added until 10/8/2019 and the rest of the months that continue to be calculated from normal way.
2019
|Month | Total sales |
| jan      |  xxxx |
| feb      |  xxxx |
| mar     |  xxxx |
| apr      |  xxxx |
| may    |  xxxx |
| jun      |  xxxx |
| jul       |  xxxx |
| ago     |  xxxx |
| set      |  xxxx |
| oct      |  xxxx |   ----> how to show total sales until 8th october 2019, the last months are calcutated from normal way
| nov     |  xxxx | 
| dec     |  xxxx |

2020
|Month | Total sales |
| jan      |  xxxx |
| feb      |  xxxx |
| mar     |  xxxx |
| apr      |  xxxx |
| may    |  xxxx |
| jun      |  xxxx |
| jul       |  xxxx |
| ago     |  xxxx | 
| set      |  xxxx |
| oct      |  xxxx |   --->    but this day is current date, for example 8th october 2020

Since today is October 12th, October 2019 will only calculate the value before the 12th.

@Anonymous Try this measure:

 

Sales Prev Year =
VAR _stopdate = today()
RETURN
    SUMX (
        'Date',
        CALCULATE (
            IF (
                SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] ) >= _stopdate,
                BLANK (),
                CALCULATE ( [Sales], SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR ( 'Date'[Date] ) )
            )
        )
    )

 

EDIT: replaced LASTNONBLANK ( 'Date'[Date], [Sales] ) with TODAY(), as that lastnonblank() took out more data than intended.

Respectfully,
DataZoe
