Re: Time Intelligence - WTD and MTD Previous Period

@svalen

Please do the following

1. Create a column in the Calendar /Date table as

PYDate = CALCULATE (  DAteadd('Calendar'[Date],-1,Year)  )

2. Create a measure called  SalesThisYear

SalesThisYear = CALCULATE (
[SalesAmount] ,
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Calendar' ),
'Calendar'[Year] = MAX ( 'Calendar'[Year] )
&& 'Calendar'[Date] <= MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] )
)
)

This will give the Sales cumulated uptodate for the current period.

3. Create a measure called SalesLatYear

SalesLastYear = CALCULATE (
[SalesAmount] ,
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Calendar' ),
'Calendar'[Year] = MAX ( 'Calendar'[Year]) - 1
&& 'Calendar'[Date] <= MAX( 'Calendar'[PYDate] )
)
)

If it works please give Kudos.

Cheers

@CheenuSing

Perfect. Thanks. I should have adapted the logic from the previous measure, now I realise it is simple.

Thanks for your support.

Re: Time Intelligence - WTD and MTD Previous Period

@CheenuSing, hi i have a similar problem. I use your formula but when i select for example february I have accumulated what I have in January and February sales, could you please help me in doing something so I do not accumulate sales if I have only one month selected in my filter, if I have several months filtered then if I accumulate these sales.

This is formula is key to resolving date calculations.  It absolves the 12 month timeframe and allows to do simple calculations to add or remove months.

YearMonthNumber = ('Calendar'[Year] - MIN( 'Calendar'[Year] )) * 12 + 'Calendar'[MonthNumber]

YearMontNumber should not be just YYYY-MM.

Thank you!
