## Last Year Sales Data is Off By One Week

I have a matrix to compare the sales of the past week (week 37) and the same week last year as such:

`PY_SalesAmt = CALCULATE(sum(Sales[NetAmount]),DC03_Calendar[Fin_Year] = "2017")`

The problem I am encountering is that instead of pulling the data from last year week 37 it is pulling the data from last year week 38.

How can I make an adjustment so these dates line up properly? My last fiscal year is 53 weeks which i believe is the problem.

Hi @igibson,

According to my test, DATAADD and SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR both have a granularity of DAY. Maybe we have to get the same week by ourselves if you want the exact same week (same week number).

```CouldbeRight =
VAR currentWeeknum =
MIN ( 'Date'[Weeknum] )
VAR currentYear =
YEAR ( MIN ( 'Date'[Date] ) )
RETURN
CALCULATE (
FIRSTDATE ( 'Date'[Date] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Date' ),
'Date'[Weeknum] = currentWeeknum
&& YEAR ( 'Date'[Date] )
= currentYear - 1
)
)```

As we can see from the picture, the first day of week 52 of 2010 is 12/19/2010, not 12/18/2010.

Best Regards!

A very simple soultion that I implemented was a change in the calendar. I simply used Fin_Week = WEEKNUM(DC03_Calendar[Date]+1,21).

Hi,

If in your filter, you have chosen a specific date range, then use the SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR() function in the CALCULATE function.
