Im pretty new to Analysis Service and would like to create a YTD measure with in my cube. How would i go about doing something like this?

Sum(YTD(),[Measures].[YourMeasure])

This assumes you have a correctly defined time dimension/hierarchy with a Year defined as type 'years'

How would i do previous YTD?
 

RE: YTD

Prior YTD you would implement using the ParallelPeriod() Function.

RE: YTD

YTD:
Sum(PeriodsToDate([Dim Time].[Time Hierarchy].[Year], [Dim Time].[Time Hierarchy].CurrentMember), [Measures].[MeasureName])

Prev YTD:
(ParallelPeriod([Dim Time].[Time Hierarchy].[Year], 1), [Measures].[YTD])
