# Getting the Prior Month Average when Date is Row Context

I’ve been struggling with this one for a few days and it’s something simple I’m overlooking. I just need to return the Prior Month Average for Each Customer and this works fine when Row Context is Month-Year, but doesn’t when Row Context is Date.

Bump to the top, still haven’t solved this

Hi @sscott,
Thank you very much for post your query into the forum.
I share a posible solution where I have created two measures:

``````Freight/lb by Customer -1M =

VAR _CurrentDate = MAX( Dates[Date] )

VAR _CurrentMonth = MONTH( _CurrentDate )

VAR _CurrentYear = YEAR( _CurrentDate )

VAR _PreviosMonth = IF(

_CurrentMonth = 1,

12,

_CurrentMonth - 1

)

VAR _PreviosYear = IF(

_CurrentMonth = 1,

_CurrentYear - 1,

_CurrentYear

)

VAR _DatesLM = FILTER(

ALL( Dates ),

Dates[Month Number] = _PreviosMonth &&

Dates[Year] = _PreviosYear

)

VALUES( Freight[Customer Number] ),

"@Freight/lb", CALCULATE(

[Freight/lb],

_DatesLM,

ALLEXCEPT( Freight, Freight[Customer Number] )

)

)

VAR _Result = MAXX( _VirtualTable, [@Freight/lb] )

RETURN

_Result

//CONCATENATEX( _VirtualTable , [Customer Number] &":"&[@Freight/lb] &UNICHAR( 10 ) )

Freight/lb Result =

VAR _Freight_Status = MAX( Freight[Freight Status] )

VAR _Result = IF(

_Freight_Status = "No Freight", [Freight/lb by Customer -1M],

[Freight/lb]

)

RETURN

_Result
``````

I have used the code commented at the end of the first measure:

`//CONCATENATEX( _VirtualTable , [Customer Number] &":"&[@Freight/lb] &UNICHAR( 10 ) )`

to debug the content of the virtual table, thanks to this post by @BrianJ on Linkedin.

Regards
