Use measure within another measure

I have the following measures and I need a new measure called Net that is CurrentYear - PriorYear. Can I create this measure without repeating the formulas of the prior two...something like [CurrentYear] - [PriorYear] or something? All three of these will be used in a matrix with values over 12 months. Thanks.

 

CurrentYear = Format(
CALCULATE(sum(Sheet1[FinancialAmount]), filter(Sheet1, Sheet1[FinancialType]= "Current")),
"$#,##0;($#,##0)"
)

 

PriorYear = Format(
CALCULATE(sum(Sheet1[FinancialAmount]), filter(Sheet1, Sheet1[FinancialType]= "Prior")),
"$#,##0;($#,##0)"
)

Re: Use measure within another measure

Hi @admiralman,

 

Try to do VARIABLES within measures like below:

 

% YoY Sales = 

VAR CURRENT_SALES = SUM(SALES)

VAR PRIOR_SALES = CALCULATE(SUM(SALES);SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(DATES))

Return

DIVIDE ( CURRENT_SALES - PRIOR_SALES; PRIOR_SALES)

 

Best regards,

Re: Use measure within another measure

Hi @admiralman,

 

Once you have created measures you can use them inside others measures. Also you can change the context of them.

 

Thanks,
