### How to compare current year vs up to relative date of previous yea

Hi,

I need to compare current year vs up to relative date of previous year.
p.e. if today=5/5/2006 I want to compare let's say 'sales' of current year
(up to 5/5/2006) vs 'Sales' of previous year up to 5/5/2005.

Any ideas?

D.E.

Hello:
I'm hoping a Pivot Table can help is compare Sales by month from the current
year vs the previous year.

2005 600,000 525,000 615,000 650,000
Difference -100.000 75,000 -65,000 50,000

I would always want to keep the totals for each group together. Can this be
done? Are there any examples of how to do something like this?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!
