Compare year vs last year sales

In Qlik Sense..

i want to compare the sales of a specific year (selected) with the year before. For example, if i selected 2015 de comparison will be 2015 vs 2014..

Years

2013
2014
2015

2016

VendorsYear selectedYear BeforYear1 - Year2

Vendor 1

Vendor 2

Vendor 3

The data is from a db in sql server... year colum name in the db is "feccbt", and the sales colum name is "imptotcbt". To show the total sales i do SUM(imptotcbt).

I can't make that comparison.. Please help me, sorry for my poor english

Create a year field in the script

LOAD feccbt,

          Year(feccbt) as Year_feccbt,

          OtherField

FROM .....;

and then this:

Year Selected

Sum({<Year_feccbt = {"$(=Max(Year_feccbt))"}, feccbt>} imptotcbt)

Year Before

Sum({<Year_feccbt = {"$(=Max(Year_feccbt)-1)"}, feccbt>} imptotcbt)

Year1-Year2

RangeSum(Sum({<Year_feccbt = {"$(=Max(Year_feccbt))"}, feccbt>} imptotcbt), -Sum({<Year_feccbt = {"$(=Max(Year_feccbt)-1)"}, feccbt>} imptotcbt))

May be this:

Year Selected

Sum({<feccbt = {"$(=Max(feccbt))"}>} imptotcbt)

Year Before

Sum({<feccbt = {"$(=Max(feccbt)-1)"}>} imptotcbt)

Year1-Year2

RangeSum(Sum({<feccbt = {"$(=Max(feccbt))"}>} imptotcbt), -Sum({<feccbt = {"$(=Max(feccbt)-1)"}>} imptotcbt))

Thanks for answering ...

The problem with that code in the first colum is that is returning me only the sales of the last day registered in the year selected. For example..

For 2015 the last sale is in 30/12/2015... And in the second colum return the sales of the previous day (for 30/12/2015 return 29/12/2015)..

if i use Max(Year(feccbt)) return 0.

feccbt is a year or date field?

Is this resolved now? or still an issue? The reason I ask this is because you have marked correct response

The only problem I have is that Max(feccbt) return the day, I need the year. But I don't know how to use  year(feccbt)...
