How to create a column chart, comparing two different dates from a single date column ?

Hi friends,

I am hoping someone could suggest me a way to create a clustered column chart comparing values for two different date ranges from a  single date column.

I have a table with a date cloumn, with data from October 2015 to October 2017. I would like to draw a clustered column chart comparing monthly data for two date ranges. i.e. 1)from 27-oct-15 to 26 Aug 2016 and 2) from 27-oct-16 to 26- Aug- 2017. 

Here is the visual with the monthly data for the date range 27-oct-16 to 26-Aug-17:

Below is the Axis parameters used for the above graph:

I would like to add/compare the monthly data for date range (27-oct-15 to 26 Aug 2016) to the above column chart. Any help would be very much appreciated. 
Thank you!!!

Hi @Rck7,

Please create a measure using the similar formula below.

2015/10/27-2016/8/26 = CALCULATE(sum(Table[Tokens],SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Table[date]))

Then add the measure above in as value level in the clustered column chart, and check if it works fine. If this still doesn't resolved your issue, please share yoru sample table for further analysis.

Best Regards,

Re: How to create a column chart, comparing two different dates from a single date column ?

@v-huizhn-msft@CheenuSing Thanks for your help!! I am able to view current year totatls with the past year(Fiscal Year2) totals by using the measure you suggested. 

Additionally, 1)Is there also a measure where I could see the past two year totals(Fiscal year1&2) with the current year? 
2) How could I reformat the dates on my chart to start from (Oct16- August17) ?

Here is my chart:
