Comparing current sales with dynamic sales from previous year

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am trying to do comparisons of sales between a month and the previous year's same month.

So say this month so far, i have $50,000 in sales, I want to compare that to May 2008 sales.

I have the dates down. I can show this month and i can show all of the previous year month.

The problem that I am running into is making the previous year month dynamic as the current month is.

This is how my calc work now.

This May 2009 so far i have $50,000 in sales, May 2008 it will show $250,000 in sales.

It is showing the entire past month, not keeping it up to date with where we currently are in the current month.

I would like it to show this month's sales up until today and the previous years month up until the current date.

May 4th 2009 - $50,000

May 4th 2008 - $48,000

This way we can see how the month is going without having to wait until the end of the month to compare figures.

Please help!

Thanks!

It would help knowing what method are you using for displaying the comparison (report, portal or ??).
