    Calculation Field -  how to include one measure with values of different time periods? (Current Period minus previous Period)

    Flora Fu

      Hi All,


      I am trying to build some ratio calculations which require to use values in the both current and previous field.  For example, calculate year over year cash collected,   


      Formula is : "cash collected = Revenue current + AR previous month – AR current "    ( Two measures: Revenue and A/R, also Date value)


      I am not sure whether to use " If or case when" statement, but it would be difficult to select the condition as "previous month"

      Also, I have no idea how should I deal with the "Date" value, it is in Date format as well, and I am able to customize it as "Month"


      Does anyone have experience with this kind of calculation?   Any help is very much appreciated!



      Thank you ~
