I have a calculated column to get the total amount in a month from last year from a transactional table, to be compared with the MTD figure in the current year in a visual.
The formula applied is
Amount MTD Previous Year. = CALCULATE(SUM('Transation'[Amount]),DATEADD(DATESMTD(DateCalendar[Date]),-12,MONTH))
And I have another table consists of calendar dates from several years period.
I use this calendar date table as an X-axis and filtering month and year.
The screen shot below is the visual I mentioned.
The result given from the previous year MTD from Jan-Nov is correct.
However, the Dec figure shows incorrect result. It's showing the total amount of Jan-Nov.
I need help to show me what is wrong with the formula & how to fix this, so I can get the correct figure to show MTD of each month from the previous year of the year that is selected as filter.

Try this measure (not a calculated column formula)
Does this work?
