I have a pretty small data set in Excel 2016, and I'm trying to create a really simple measure

=CALCULATE([Total Sales],DATEADD(Calendar[Date],-1,MONTH))



(Total Sales Previous Month)

When I try to save it, I get the "couldn't get data from the model..." How do I fix this? I tried closing the file, reopening, recreating... all failed. It doesn't seem to matter how I set the data types.

The odd thing is that the exact same formula works if I change MONTH to YEAR. This measure works:

=CALCULATE([Total Sales],DATEADD(Calendar[Date],-1,YEAR))



Any idea how to fix this? (Do I really have to start over again???) Not a huge deal if I do, just kinda annoying.

FWIW...
Version 16.0.6925.1018 64-bit

Thanks!
Pieter
