Let's call the three parameters A, B and C. In plain English, the PARALLELPERIOD does this following:

For this member (C), go back this many (B) time units (A).

So, in this example, for wherever we are (currentmember) in the Year Group hierarchy (C), go back 12 (B) months (A).

The syntax is therefore PARALLELPERIOD(A, B, C) - in this case, PARALLELPERIOD(months in the Year Group hierarchy, 12, the currentmember of the Year Group)
