## Previous Date Calculation

Hello everyone,

I got this table where I need to compare current date (max date = 20/02/2018) and previous date ( 19/02/2018)

I tried using

Sum({<Date= {"\$(=Max(Date))"}>} [Partner Closing Stock]) -------- Correct

Sum({<Date= {"\$(=Max(Date) -1)"}>} [Partner Closing Stock])  ------- not giving me the right answer

Can you help me?

Thank you

HI

Write max(total date

Otherwise max is on your dimension

Try this:

Sum({<Date={'\$(Max(Date)-1)'}>}[Partner Closing Stock])

Hello, would this

Sum({<Date= {"\$(=date(Max(Date)-1))"}>} [Partner Closing Stock])

Hello giovanneb‌     @dlmperio

Thank you for your attempts however your suggested expressions are still not giving me the values of the previous date.

Can you give your feeds on this>?

It seems you only have monthstart dates 2/1/2017 is feb 1st and 1/1/2017 is jan 1st. If that is true, then try this

Sum({<Date= {"\$(=Date(MonthStart(Max(Date), -1)))"}>} [GAS PRODUCED])

Hello Sunny

Thank you for reaching out

The script you proposed still didn't give me the desired result.

Attached is an excel extract from the SQL Db.  Kindly inspect the tables and let see how it goes

thanks

Based on this data, I would think that this should work

Sum({<Date= {"\$(=Date(Max(Date)-1, 'YYYY/MM/DD'))"}, Month, Year, Day>} [GAS PRODUCED])
