## half year vs previous half year

Hi, I am trying to compare 2018H1 vs 2017H1, 2017H2 vs 2016H2 etc (maybe 2018H1 vs 2017H2 also)

I have add a column to my date table with 2016H1, 2016H2, 2017H1, 2017H2, 2018H1 etc

I can then create a matrix with the year halfs and sales by various categories, but I can't figure out how to do a HY over HY comparison.  QTD vs PQTD I thought may work but could nto do so... please help

## Re: half year vs previous half year

I did try the below, and it works for H1, but for H2 it has both H1 and H2 added together.

Sales Same Period Last year = CALCULATE([YTD Sales],SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('Calendar'[Date]))

and then tried this, which works, except the equation above is wrong...

HoH = DIVIDE([Sales]-[Sales Same Period Last year],[Sales Same Period Last year])

for ref,  Sales = SUM(Sales[Ttl AMT])
