Hello,

Total current month clicks - total previous month clicks / total previous month * 100 / 1

Hi @lparks ，

According to your description, here's my solution.

1.Create a calculated column to calculate the sum total clicks for each month.

``````SUM Total Clicks =
SUMX (
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Month] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Month] ) ),
'Table'[Total Clicks]
)
``````

2.Create a measure.

``````SUM Total Clicks MOM% =
VAR _Previous =
MAXX (
FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), 'Table'[Month] = MAX ( 'Table'[Month] ) - 1 ),
'Table'[SUM Total Clicks]
)
VAR _DIFF =
MAX ( 'Table'[SUM Total Clicks] ) - _Previous
RETURN
DIVIDE ( _DIFF, _Previous )
``````

3.Get the expected result, as your snapshot shows part of the data, I get a great value.

I attach my sample below for reference.

Hi @amitchandak thank you so much. Do I need to put all of the info in one formula?

@lparks , You can create this month vs last month measure using date table

MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Total click]),DATESMTD('Date'[Date]))
last MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Total click]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,MONTH)))

last month Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Total click]),previousmonth('Date'[Date]))
next month Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Total click]),nextmonth('Date'[Date]))

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 :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.
