Measure showing blanks when changing context from days to months

Hi there, I hope someone can help here...
 
Scheduled Sales =
VAR Last Billable Date = CALCULATE(MAX(Sales[Date]) ,ALL(Sales))
RETURN
IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Date[Date]) <Last Billable Date , BLANK(),
CALCULATE([Future Sales]))
 
the DAX statement above intends to aggregate future sales when the day is bigger than the last day we have a sale registered. Calculate function on future sales works like a charm.
This DAX statement indeed works well if the context is days , but shows nothing if the context changes from days to months. What am I doing wrong that everything looks fine and works with the context of days but nothing if the context are months?
I'd expect to have the aggregation of days in a month and show that as a results instead of blanks.
 
thanks for your time
Daniel

@DSiffredi,

 

SELECTEDVALUE returns the value when there’s only one value in the specified column, otherwise returns the alternate result. Here BLANK is returned. You may use MAX instead.

BTW: Here's a couple of screenshots showing what I meant 

 

shows numbers when by date.PNGas you can see it shows Scheduled Sales when slicing by daysnot showing numbers when by month.PNGNot showing any values or agregations when slicing by Months (FYFM in this case)
