Last year dynamic sales

Hi, 

I want to see the previous year selected sales, I have order date as a hierarchy, I want to select year and see current year and previous year sales: for current year it works, for prevous year it doesn't work, these are the formulas I used: 

 
value selected year = VAR ANNO= (SELECTEDVALUE(Orders[Order Date].[Year]))
RETURN
CALCULATE(SUM(Orders[Sales]),'Orders',
Orders[Order Date].[Year]=ANNO)
 
value previous year = VAR ANNO= (SELECTEDVALUE(Orders[Order Date].[Year]))
RETURN
CALCULATE(SUM(Orders[Sales]),'Orders',
Orders[Order Date].[Year]=ANNO -1)
 
Thank you

@Giada_Togliatti , Better to move this to date of year table as you need all

 

value previous year = VAR ANNO= (SELECTEDVALUE(Orders[Order Date].[Year]))
RETURN
CALCULATE(SUM(Orders[Sales]),all('Orders'),
Orders[Order Date].[Year]=ANNO -1)

 


value previous year =
VAR ANNO= maxx(allselected(Date),Date[[Year])
RETURN
CALCULATE(SUM(Orders[Sales]),all(Date),
Date[Year]=ANNO -1)

 

Or try something like (Example) //You can use year table in place of Date table

This Year = CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]),filter(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Year]=max('Date'[Year])))
Last Year = CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]),filter(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Year]=max('Date'[Year])-1))

 

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :
