# YOY calculations - DOMO recommended formulas not working

However, the one I really want is a YoY calculation for the same series, but when I try that formula, it comes back invalid:

DOMO YoY Calculation

Case year(`Datefield`) when year(curdate()) then 'This Year' when year(curdate())-1 then 'Last Year’ End

Updated for my data:

Case year(`FULL_DATE`) when year(curdate()) then 'This Year' when year(curdate())-1 then 'Last Year' End

Two things I noted:

1.) There is a single quote in the original formula that doesn't get recognized properly by Beast Mode (the last single quote).

2.) I have never seen a Case When statement where a criteria was called between the Case and When. I am relatively new to this, so it might just be my lack of experience.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you,

Hi,

Try it like this:

Case When year(`FULL_DATE`) = year(curdate()) then 'This Year'

When year(`FULL_DATE`) =  year(curdate())-1 then 'Last Year' End

Hope it helps.

Here's an example of a beast mode I am using to calculate sales PYTD:

sum(

case when `Invoice Date` <= DATE_SUB(DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), interval (DAYOFWEEK(CURDATE())) day), interval 1 year)
and YEAR(`Invoice Date`) = YEAR(DATE_SUB(DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), interval (DAYOFWEEK(CURDATE())) day), interval 1 year))
then `Extended Price` else 0
end

)

Notice that the case statement is nested within a sum statement.  Ultimately that's what I'm needing to do, provide a sales total for prior year at the same point in time.
