## sum with DATESBETWEEN where lastdate parameter is determined via a slicer

Hi guys,

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:

Stock Physique N-1 V2 =
CALCULATE(SUM(SPHStockPF[Quantité N]), DATESBETWEEN(
'Date'[Date],
DATE(2018,12,31),
[Posting_date_n_1]
))
Where [Posting_date_n_1] is a measure that takes the max date of the slicer and return that date minus one year, its value is displayed below the slicer in the image. 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

Stock Physique N-1 V2 =
CALCULATE(SUM(SPHStockPF[Quantité N]), DATESBETWEEN(
SPHStockPF[Posting Date],
DATE(2018,12,31),
DATE(2019,07,31)
))
I get different results (the good ones): So my question is: how can I get the good results using the slicer related formula?

Thanks

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])))
return
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

for example

``PY = CALCULATE ( [Your Measure], DATEADD ( DateTable[Date], -1, YEAR ) )``

I would  Kudos if my solution helped. 👉 If you can spend time posting the question, you can also make efforts to give Kudos whoever helped to solve your problem. It is a token of appreciation!

@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
