remove future dates from sameperiod last year calc

Hi,

 

I'm struggling with this, despite trying numerous suggestions

 

These are my formulas so far

 

Bookings = DISTINCTCOUNT(BOOKINGS[BookId])
Bookings LY (Bk date) = CALCULATE(BOOKINGS[Bookings],SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('DATESBKGS&ENQS'[Dates-Bkg&Enq].[Date]))
Bookings V LY (Bk date) = if(ISBLANK([Bookings LY (Bk date)]),BLANK(),BOOKINGS[Bookings]-BOOKINGS[Bookings LY (Bk date)])
 
I've managed to successfully stop the 2018 calculation being against something blank, but I can't for the life of me find a way around getting rid of the 2022 and also the Feb 2021 onwards should also be blank
 
I've tried adding a calculated column into my date table that returns a True or falls for is the date is before today and using that to filter, but it seems to make no effect. Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

 

I've got a slicer in play on this page, so the user can expand their time period as necessary. Thanks

so i believe i've found a solution, which, I stumbled upon by accident which was removing the .date

 

So changing this

 

Bookings LY (Bk date) = CALCULATE(BOOKINGS[Bookings],SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('DATESBKGS&ENQS'[Dates-Bkg&Enq].[Date]))

 

to 

 

Bookings LY (Bk date) = CALCULATE(BOOKINGS[Bookings],SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('DATESBKGS&ENQS'[Dates-Bkg&Enq]))

 

Seem to work, I'm guessing it must have something to do with the time intelligence function, but thought i'd post for anyone else who may have a similar querey

Hello @LaurenceSD 

You can simply create a measure as follows

Bookings CY = Calculate(DistinctCount(BookingsID),

,DATESBETWEEN(Ops_Dashboard[RouteDate],DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),1,1),TODAY()))

)

Other Measures should be good

Hi Jay,

 

That doesn't seem to work, seems to reproduce the current year for every single year

What I'm ideally trying to show is the year on year variation with year going across the top and months down the side. And what I've done so far works fine for dates in the past, I just can't seem to find a way of stopping Feb 21 being compared to Feb 20, because Feb 21 hasn't happened yet.

@LaurenceSD Seems like you need to add a check of something like IF([Date]>TODAY(),BLANK(),...)

@Greg_Deckler Yeah that was my thinking as well, I tried 

Bookings LY (Bk date) = if(SELECTEDVALUE('DATESBKGS&ENQS'[Dates-Bkg&Enq].[Date])>TODAY(),BLANK(),CALCULATE(BOOKINGS[Bookings],SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('DATESBKGS&ENQS'[Dates-Bkg&Enq].[Date]))) & it doesn't seem to produce a result that's any different - any further thoughts on where I'm going wrong?
