sameperiode last year

Hi,

 

I want to compare data with the results in the same periode last year and have the next DAX formula:

  • Total Calls = COUNT(NLE_PowerBI_verzoeken[HID])
  • Total Calls LY = CALCULATE( [Total Calls] ;  SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR( Datum[Date]))

When i don't use a date-filter visual i see that the line "Total Calls LY" (last year) also shows the next year.

 

How can i complete the DAX formula that it have a maximum date of the current date?

Re: sameperiode last year

The easiest way I've found to deal with this is to just check for a current value ...

 

Total Calls LY = IF( [Total Calls], 
     CALCULATE( [Total Calls] ; SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR( Datum[Date])),
     BLANK())
 

You actually don't need the third argument - BLANK() - because BLANK() is the default third argument for the IF() formula.
