Hi Gustavo,

Please use like below

Variable vCurrent_Month:

Month(Today())

Remove "=" before Month().

sum({<Month_date ={'$(=$(vCurrent_Month))'}>}Visitors)

=Month(Today()) is just going to give you 'May' as a result.

=Date(Today(),'MMM-YYYY') will give you the current month, just match the format string to month_Datesyntax.  The syntax is val

Edit: I've seen a lot of posts here recommending new syntax.  The syntax is valid, I worked it on my device. It's the output of the variable that's not matching whats in your dimension.

You may use Num(Month(Today())) = 5
