How to show values x-1 based on a filtered value

Dears,

 

I am trying to create a dashboard as in the below picture. Bit of background info: the values in the coloured boxes are linked to a week number, and obviously they change when the slicer of the lefthand side is adjusted. The same goes for the value "46" in the top right corner. 

 

What I would like to add is the following: to make a comparison to the values of the previous week, I would like to add the values of the previous week as well (so essentially x-1 in which 'x' is the value indicated in the slicer: in case of the screenshot it would be week 45). I haven't figured out how to make this work, however. Could one of you help me with that? Thanks a lot!

You need

 

new columns in date table 
Week Start date = 'Date'[Date]+-1*WEEKDAY('Date'[Date],2)+1
Week End date = 'Date'[Date]+ 7-1*WEEKDAY('Date'[Date],2)
Week Rank = RANKX(all('Date'),'Date'[Week Start date],,ASC,Dense)
OR
Week Rank = RANKX(all('Date'),'Date'[Year Week],,ASC,Dense) //YYYYWW format

 

measures
This Week = CALCULATE(sum('Table'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])))
Last Week = CALCULATE(sum('Table'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])-1))
