## dinamic accouting

Hello,

i need to analyse to viability of several projets,

in this example i have a project that starts on march 16.

So to compare in 2017, i cannot compare jan and fev of 2017, because i have to compare 2017 with 2016.

But in 2018, i have to compare the full year of 2018 and 2017.

How can i do a formula to make the diference of the several years dinamically ?

thanks,

JR

Hi @jppuam

If you have data as shown in the above table and you want to compare it, can you please share what is your expected outcome?

What i want is the diference between 2017/2016, and 2018/2017.

So the result would be :

march 2017 - march 2016 = (7 - 7)

april 2017 - april 20216 = (6 - 😎

.....

thus, i have the diferent between 2017 and 2016.

But when i do the varition between 2018 and 2017, i have :

jan 2018 - jan 2017

fev 2018 - fev 2017

....

so i'll have the diference 2018 - 2017

the question for me is, becasuse the projet start em mar 2016, how can i make the operations with 2017. Because, i cant considerer the jan e fev of 2017, when compare to the 2016, but i have to considerer when making the variation regarding 2018.

i dont know if its was clear,

thanks,

JR

hi, @jppuam

You may try to use SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR Function to create a measure like below:

`Measure = CALCULATE(SUM(Table2[Sales]),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Table2[Date]))`

Difference

`Measure 2 = CALCULATE(SUM(Table2[Sales]))-[Measure]`

or

`Measure 3 = IF(ISBLANK([Measure])=FALSE(),CALCULATE(SUM(Table2[Sales]))-[Measure])`

Result:
