So whenever I add a measure to a visual, it breaks the visuals and gives me this error " 'DATEADD' expects a contigous selection when the date column is not unique, has gaps or it contains time portion."  I already have a date table with each row being the first day of the months from X-Y  years, and this date table is related to my other tables. There is no time portion so that is not the issue, I dont think it is due to gaps because I am replicating another PowerBi Desktop version and it uses the same date table perfectly fine. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

@NMonte , Make sure the date table has all dates and marked as a date table. Marked as a date table . Usally these two things make sure you have a continuous date


if not,

Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
