Sum values by category and by month

Hi, I have a dataset where I have data for, let's say, people and their amount of sales. This data is per month and per year. I need to filter the total of their sales by month (of that year) and put this in a new column (Total per month).

 

DatePersonSalesTotal per month
20/12/2020A$10$30
30/12/2020A$20$30
30/12/2020B$5$5
15/01/2021A$7$7
16/01/2021B$5$25
17/01/2021B$20$25

 

I'm currently working with:

 

"Total per month = CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table1[Sales] ), ALLEXCEPT( Table1 , Table1[Person] ))"

 

but this considers sales for every month and year, so what can I add for this to result in the table written above? Thanks in advance.

@actroyani  you can try this

 

Column =
VAR _0 =
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        ADDCOLUMNS ( tbl, "year", YEAR ( tbl[Date] ) ),
        "month", MONTH ( tbl[Date] )
    )
VAR _1 =
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        _0,
        "test",
            SUMX (
                FILTER (
                    _0,
                    [Person] = EARLIER ( [Person] )
                        && [year] = EARLIER ( [year] )
                        && [month] = EARLIER ( [month] )
                ),
                [Sales]
            )
    )
RETURN
    MAXX (
        FILTER ( _1, [Person] = EARLIER ( tbl[Person] ) && [Date] = EARLIER ( [Date] ) ),
        [test]
    )

Hi, @actroyani 

 

  1. Add month and year to calculation column.

 

Year = YEAR('Table'[Date])

Month = MONTH('Table'[Date])

   2. Calculate the sum of sales based on the filter of year, month and person.

 

Total per month =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Table'[Sales] ),
    FILTER (
        'Table',
        'Table'[Person] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Person] )
            && 'Table'[Year] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Year] )
            && 'Table'[Month] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Month] )
    )
)
