How do I calculate this year fiscal week vs last year fiscal week?

Hello.

I have safety data. I’m trying to count total accidents this year vs SPLY.

Currently, I was using

Calculate ( [Total Acc], sameperiodlastyear([datecolumn]))

This works fine, I believe it will count all records through the same number of days last year.

Problem I encounter is when I want to do it by fiscal week. Week 1 vs week 1 last year, the calendar year dates aren’t aligned.
Not sure what kind of pattern I can use. Hopefully my issue is clear, can anyone assist?

Hi @tigerec,

For that you will need a proper Dates table that contains all Fiscal date attributes and a pattern that looks something like this:

Accidents Fiscal Week CY =
VAR cFY = MAX( 'Dates'[Fiscal Year] )
VAR cFW = MAX( 'Dates'[Fiscal Week] )
RETURN
    CALCULATE( [Total Acc],
        FILTER( ALL( 'Dates' ),
            'Dates'[Fiscal Year] = cFY  &&
            'Dates'[Fiscal Week] = cFW
        )
    )

And for the previous year

Accidents Fiscal Week LY =
VAR cFY = MAX( 'Dates'[Fiscal Year] )
VAR cFW = MAX( 'Dates'[Fiscal Week] )
RETURN
    CALCULATE( [Total Acc],
        FILTER( ALL( 'Dates' ),
            'Dates'[Fiscal Year] = cFY - 1 &&
            'Dates'[Fiscal Week] = cFW
        )
    )

For the comparison you can subtract one measure from the other.
I hope this is helpful

Thank you so much. This worked, however my card is blank, no total.

Should I use HASONEFILTER ON Dates[Date] pattern or you recommend something else?
