## Lastdate current month. Compare revenue to corresponding date last month.

I have a measure of Revenue for the current month. The revenue is cumulative, hence the last day revenue is my MTD calculation.

In order to be able to perform month to month comparison I would need to find the corresponding "last date" from previous month. I.e. if the lastday measure below return 11th of April, I would like the previous month measure to return 11th of March. Tried with parrarelperiod function but without any results.

All help appreciated,

thanks.

lastday = LASTDATE('sales'[dateCreated])

Revenue Current Month = CALCULATE(SUM('sales'[revenue]) , DATESBETWEEN('sales'[dateCreated].[Date],[lastday],[lastday]))

Revenue Previous Month = ?

## Re: Lastdate current month. Compare revenue to corresponding date last month.

Hi @dinovic,

According to your description above, you should be able to use Could you try the formula below to see if it works in your scenario?

```Revenue Previous Month =
CALCULATE (
[Revenue Current Month],
DATEADD ( 'sales'[dateCreated], -1, MONTH )
)
```

In addition, based on my understanding, the DATEBETWEEN function is not necessary here in your [Revenue Current Month] measure, the formula below should also works.

```Revenue Current Month = CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'sales'[revenue] ), 'sales'[dateCreated] = [lastday] )
```
