a-EMLogical errors in formulasIn formula "StoreSalesPrevYr:=CALCULATE([StoreSales], DATEADD(DimDate[Datekey], -1, YEAR))", the 2nd parameter for DATEADD is relative to the 'current context'. In column DimDate[DateKey], that is the most recent year, i.e. 2011.Looking at sales figures starting down from one year before 2011 shows all recorded sales, of course. => YOY growth is 0.If this second parameter of DATEADD is changed to e.g. -3 or -4, the numbers do change to reflect total store sales over 2007-2008 or 2007 respectiTue, 09 Feb 2016 10:30:07 -0800

RoseventuraMy KPI functions gave me the same numbers with 0% YOY growth..I copy/pasted the functions directly from the tutorial page as such:StoreSales:=CALCULATE(SUM(FactSales[SalesAmount]), DimChannel[ChannelName]="Store")StoreSalesPrevYr:=CALCULATE([StoreSales], DATEADD(DimDate[Datekey], -1, YEAR))YOYGrowth:=([StoreSales] - [StoreSalesPrevYr]) / [StoreSalesPrevYr]and the results were such:StoreSales: $4,854,699,598.33StoreSalesPrevYr: $4,854,699,598.33YOYGrowth: 0.00 %There was no difference between 1 year and the previous year. What did I do wrong?RoseMon, 24 Aug 2015 20:43:23 -0700

ResidentX10Why does this formula not have a closing bracket?Why is no closing bracket needed for this equation?YOYGrowth:=([StoreSales] - [StoreSalesPrevYr]) / [StoreSalesPrevYr]Sun, 28 Jun 2015 19:20:29 -0700
