It looks like the issue is because you are trying to account for the week in your Beast Mode, when the rows in your table are already separated by week. You can actually use a much simpler calculation that only compares the year over year because each row of your table is already only includes data from the same week of the year. Try this:

```(
(SUM(CASE
WHEN YEAR(`Opp | Close Date *`) = YEAR(CURDATE()) And `ETL | Amount Type` = 'Booking'
THEN `Opp | Split Total Amount *`
ELSE 0 END)
-
(SUM(CASE
WHEN YEAR(`Opp | Close Date *`) = YEAR(CURDATE()) - 1 AND `ETL | Amount Type` = 'Booking'
THEN `Opp | Split Total Amount *`
ELSE 0 END)
)

/

(SUM(CASE
WHEN YEAR(`Opp | Close Date *`) = YEAR(CURDATE()) - 1 AND `ETL | Amount Type` = 'Booking'
THEN `Opp | Split Total Amount *`
ELSE 0 END)```
