## How to get a value of the same day from previous month?

Hello guys,

I have a problem that I wish to solve, if anyone could help. I tried to calculate a value of the same day, from previous month and I don't have a clue about how to do it. The comparation that I wish to show is the sales of 05-sep-2017 subtracting 05-aug-2017, in a line chart opened by day, for example. It wuold be something like this:

test = Calculate(SUM([Value]) ,  DATEADD([Date Event].[Day]))

Calculate(SUM([Value]) ,  DATEADD([Date Event].[Day], -1, month))

Can anybody help with a solution?

Thanks in advance

Hi @dcrios,

I created a sample table based on my assumption.

Please create measures like:

```Last Month =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( [Value] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Month-Sales' ),
MONTH ( 'Month-Sales'[Date Event] )
= MONTH ( MAX ( 'Month-Sales'[Date Event] ) ) - 1
&& DAY ( 'Month-Sales'[Date Event] ) = DAY ( MAX ( 'Month-Sales'[Date Event] ) )
)
)

difference = MAX('Month-Sales'[Value])-[Last Month]```

Hi,

Drag the date column to the visual filter and apply a criteria of October 5.  Then write this calculated field formula

`=CALCULATE(SUM([Value]),PREVIOUSMONTH(Calendar[Date]))`

You should have a calendar table with running dates.  There should be a relationship from the Date column of your source data table to the Date column of your calendar table.
