Last year same month with slicer

I'm trying to get my sales for the same month last year but specific to the slicer. When I use this formula:

 

 
Last Year Same Month = 
CALCULATE (
    SUM ('Sell In'[Sales]),
    FILTER (
        ALLSELECTED ( 'Sell In'),
        YEAR ( 'Sell In'[Month].[Date] )
            = YEAR ( MAX ( 'Sell Out'[Date].[Date] ) ) - 1
            && MONTH ( 'Sell In'[Month].[Date]) = MONTH ( MAX ( 'Sell Out'[Date] ) )
    )
)
I get a blank. If I edit the interactions and make it independent of the slicer (with my date) it ends up working perfectly. But then if I choose a different date, it won't update.
 
Any ideas please?

HI @Pete3p0 ,

BTW, you can also try to remove suffix and use original date fields as condition for calculate:

Last Year Same Month =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Sell In'[Sales] ),
    FILTER (
        ALLSELECTED ( 'Sell In' ),
        YEAR ( 'Sell In'[Month] )
            = YEAR ( MAX ( 'Sell Out'[Date] ) ) - 1
            && MONTH ( 'Sell In'[Month] ) = MONTH ( MAX ( 'Sell Out'[Date] ) )
    )
)

Re: Last year same month with slicer

Is there no way to create a column that calculates the previous year's same month column? So I can create a column where it shows the previous year's month but then want something like this:

And the do a sumifs formula to get the sales for each product:

HI @Pete3p0 ,

You can try to use following calculated column formula if it works for your requirement:

Last Year Same Month =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Table'[Sales] ),
    FILTER (
        ALL ( 'Table' ),
        YEAR ( 'Table'[Month] )
            = YEAR ( EARLIER ( 'Table'[Month] ) ) - 1
            && MONTH ( 'Table'[Month] ) = MONTH ( EARLIER ( 'Table'[Date] ) )
            && Table[Product] = EARLIER ( Table[Product] )
    )
)

If above not help, please share a pbix file with some sample data for test.

Re: Last year same month with slicer

Hi,

 

When I applied the formula, it gave me a figure much higher than anticipated. I realised I also needed to include retailer. I tried to do that:

 

Last Year Same Month =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Table'[Sales] ),
    FILTER (
        ALL ( 'Table' ),
        YEAR ( 'Table'[Month] )
            = YEAR ( EARLIER ( 'Table'[Month] ) ) - 1
            && MONTH ( 'Table'[Month] ) = MONTH ( EARLIER ( 'Table'[Date] ) )
            && Table[Product] = EARLIER ( Table[Product] )
            && Table[Retailer] = EARLIER ( Table[Retailer] )
    )
)

it gives me the following error:

"Cannot nest EARLIER/EARLIEST functions."

 

Thanks
