I'm trying to create 2 beast modes to show yesterday's Total Invoice Amount and same day last year's Total Invoice Amount. For example, 10/27/2022, and 10/28/21

Yesterday: case when year(`INVOICE_DATE`) = year(CURDATE()) and MONTH(`INVOICE_DATE`) = MONTH(CURDATE()) then `INVOICE_TOTAL_AMOUNT` end --- This formula works

Same day last year: case when year(`INVOICE_DATE`)=YEAR(CURDATE()) -1 and YEAR(INVOICE_DATE) = MONTH(CURDATE()) then `INVOICE_TOTAL_AMOUNT`

Same day formular/code does not work.

Hi @anh_tr_huynh4 . Here's a video explanation of what you need to do: https://www.loom.com/share/70b71aee2ec44253bb4638c9862f50cb

Anyway, you're on the right track, but I don't think your formulas are doing what you want them to do. By using the year and month functions, you're really saying to get a sum of invoice amounts for an entire month and not just yesterday.

Hope the video helps

Looks like you're missing "END" in the second formula
