## Previous month dax

hello every body,

i work in a project and i can't use previous month measure.

I trie different solution :

prev month test = CALCULATE([sum relance2];PREVIOUSMONTH(Calendrier[Date]))

previous motnh 2 = CALCULATE(SUM('suivi écarts'[RELANCE_2]);
FILTER(Calendrier;MONTH(Calendrier[Date])=MONTH(TODAY())-1);
FILTER(Calendrier;YEAR(Calendrier[Date])= IF(MONTH(TODAY())=1;YEAR(TODAY())-1;YEAR(TODAY()))))

var current_month=MONTH(TODAY()) return CALCULATE(SUM('suivi écarts'[RELANCE_2]);FILTER(Calendrier;MONTH(Calendrier[Mois])=current_month -1))

i realise the measure for current month, but for previous month i can not.

Than and excuse me for my english guys

## Re: Previous month dax

I prefer datesmtd and totalytd. Please find examples

``````MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD('Date'[Date]))
last MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,MONTH)))
last MTD (complete) Sales =  CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(ENDOFMONTH(dateadd('Date'[Date ],-1,MONTH))))
last year MTD (complete) Sales =  CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(ENDOFMONTH(dateadd('Date'[Date ],-12,MONTH))))

MTD (Year End) Sales =  CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(ENDOFYEAR('Date'[Date ])))
MTD (Last Year End) Sales =  CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(ENDOFYEAR(dateadd('Date'[Date],-12,MONTH),"8/31")))``````

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.
