## Why PreviousQuarter for Contuso is not working?

I tried to create new Measure for calculating SalesAmount for Previousyear, but it is not producing any value. Why not?

Hi, @kenny_i

There‘s no problem with you measure.

For the selected quarter, if there is no data for the previous quarter, it will appear ‘blank’.

For example, there is no data for the 2010 Quarter/4 ,so  it will appear ‘blank’ when  you  check the fourth quarter of 2011.

Here is a sample I made.

You want last qtr or last year same qtr

Try these

``````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))))

QTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESQTD(('Date'[Date])))

Last QTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESQTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,QUARTER)))

Last year same QTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESQTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year)))

YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(('Date'[Date Filer])))

Last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(dateadd('Date'[Date Filer],-1,Year)))
``````
