Month over Month

Hello!

 

I am trying to figure out why calculation to show previous month load volume is not adding correctly. 

 

Last Month =
CALCULATE([Load Count],
PARALLELPERIOD(Table Name[Actual Delivery].[Date],-1,MONTH))

 

Currently the Formula I am using- 

 

For Some reason It adds up the previous calculation instead of pulling only the last month value. 

 

The table should read 

blank, 510, 527, 843 etc.

Hi,@Csmith31 

You can try the following methods:

1. Create a new date calculation column to calculate the actual time of the previous month of the current row.

Date =
PARALLELPERIOD ( 'Table'[Mouth], -1, MONTH )

2. Use the Date column to match the value that Last Mouth should display.

Last Month =
CALCULATE (
    MIN ( 'Table'[Load Volume] ),
    FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Mouth] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Date] ) )
)

3. If you don't want to display the Date column, you can choose to hide it in the view.
