MTD Previous Year on Pivot Table

Hello All,

 

Im trying to create a DAX formula for MTD for previous year.

I want to insert this formula to a Pivot Table in PowerBI.

 

I have used multiple formulas found from various websites but with no lack.

 

The Pivot table has one dimension for rows and the Year-Month (from Custom Calendar) as columns.

For current month im trying to create a formula for MTD previous year.

 

All formulas that i have created bring the total for same month from previous year.

For all completed months (e.g. Jan to Mar the data are correct).

 

Im wondering whether the use of PivotTable on PowerBI has to do with this issue.

 

At the moment im working on this formula:

CALCULATE(SUM('Invoices to Clients'[TurnOver]),
        DATESBETWEEN('Calendar'[Date],                    
            FIRSTDATE(DATEADD('Calendar'[Date],-12,MONTH)),   
            LASTDATE(DATEADD('Calendar'[Date],-12,MONTH))  
         )
     )

I was the last person who replied to this thread and i provided the following formula. I used the EDATE function.

Turnover MTD (PY) = CALCULATE(SUM('Invoices to Clients'[TurnOver]),
        DATESBETWEEN('Calendar'[Date],                    
            FIRSTDATE(DATEADD('Calendar'[Date],-12,MONTH)),   
            IF(MONTH(MIN('Calendar'[Date])) = MONTH(TODAY()), EDATE(TODAY(),-12) , LASTDATE(DATEADD('Calendar'[Date],-12,MONTH))) 
         )
     )
