## Last Year / Sameperiodlastyear with year column

Hello together,

I have a table which contains a year column, no date.

I know I can transfer each year to January 1st as date. But then the list is still not contigous date columns as required by the formulas.

Do you know any other possibility to create the Reporting Value of 2014 if 2015 is filtered?

Actually it is Report_Value:=Sum([Values])
But Report_Value_LastYear ist quite more difficult.

If tried something like this CALCULATE([Report_Value];FILTER(KoA;KoA[Jahr]=[Max Jahr]-1)) but it did not work.

Maybe you have an idea.

Best regards

## Re: Last Year / Sameperiodlastyear with year column

The recommmended approach is to create a date dimension table and use that for time intelligence functions. But I figured this out:

Create a calculated column and add this formula:
Value Prev Year = CALCULATE(Sum(Table1[Value]), filter(Table1, Table1[Year]+1 = earlier(Table1[Year])))

Does that work for you?

Hello,

yes it worked,

I couldn't figure out how to do it with earlier. I had to add a second filter with EARLIER because I have several rows per year.

But now it works. I just have to make sure there is a value for each value and year so I had to erase my '<>0' filter out of my query.

Best regards
