YOY daily running total across a month

Hi, I'm looking to create a running total of the requests received per day across a month and compare it with the same period last year. This works fine for complete months but when looking at the current month the data from the previous year pulls back the entire month and stuffs it into the last day. There is a date slicer that is used to select months.

 

Total Requests = SUM('Data'[Goal 12 Completions])

 

Requests MTD = TOTALMTD([Total Requests],'Date Table'[Date])

 

Requests Last Year MTD = TOTALMTD(CALCULATE([Total Requests], SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('Date Table'[Date])), 'Date Table'[Date])

 

Result =

 

 

How do I truncate the measure?

 

Many thanks,

Richard

Re: YOY daily running total across a month

Hi  @Richard_W,

 

One of your image didn't upload successfully. If it is convenient, could you post it again?

 

In addition, what value do you want to calculate? YOY or MTD?

 

If it is convenient, could you share some data sample and your expected output, so that we can help further investigate on it? 

 

I also have made a test, you could have a reference with the attachment.
