I'm facing difficulties calculating the sum of a column where the time boundaries of the sum are determined via a slicer:
The value I should get is the sum of 'Quantité N' from the lowest date up to the date determined by the slicer minus 1 year.
The current formula is the following:
So this formula gives me a result that i know is wrong because It does not stop the sum it should and when I use this formula

Hi @ReportingGB11 ,
We can create a measure to meet your requirement.
1. Firstly, we need to delete the relationship between SPHStockPF table and Date table.
Create a date slicer using Date table.
2. Then we can create a measure.
Stock Physique N-1 V2 =
var _select = DATE(YEAR(MAX('Date'[Date]))-1,MONTH(MAX('Date'[Date])),DAY(MAX('Date'[Date])))
CALCULATE(SUM('SPHStockPF'[Quantité N]),FILTER('SPHStockPF','SPHStockPF'[Posting Date]>=DATE(2019,1,10) && 'SPHStockPF'[Posting Date]<=_select))
If it doesn’t meet your requirement, could you please show the exact expected result based on the table that you have shared?

@ReportingGB11 if your goal is to get last year value, you can use many time intelligence functions like PARALLERPERIOD, SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR or DATESADD
PY = CALCULATE ( [Your Measure], DATEADD ( DateTable[Date], -1, YEAR ) )

@ReportingGB11 , Try like
Year behind Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(SPHStockPF[Quantité N]),dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year),'Date'[Date]>= DATE(2018,12,31))
Hope you need data > jan 2018

@amitchandak and @parry2k , many thanks for your replies.
However, I cannot display the solution provided by @amitchandak, the DATEADD function shows an error: It "expects a contiguous selection ....". Yet the Date table on which the DATEADD function is performed is a calendar table
Thanks a lot for the help
