## DAX Events In Progress with other conditions.

Hi all,

I have quite a complicated issue, with doing a events in progress with muiltpe outcomes. I've managed to do the code in Excel but I'm unsure how to translate this into DAX. I would basically like to go back in time with a calender slicer, in put a range to see how many pets adoptions were in progress, completed and withdrawn.

The sheet is regularly updated telling me the status of all pet adoptions. I have start day of progressing the adoption and Status date of when the adoption finalises. On the Status date if the adoption is still in progress, it will be equal to the start date. If the adoption gets completed or withdrawn then the status date will be day this happened.

This is the logic breakdown I came up with in Excel.

 Step 1 Check if Status is "on break" or if has start date or if the Status Date & Start day match. If either is TRUE, then Current Status Step 2 If Start date is less than sliced date, return "Not Started" Step 3 If sliced date is greater than the start date, less than the end date and end date is not equal to 0, then return "In Progress" Step 4 If Status = "In Progress" then return "In Progress" Step 5 Finally if Status = Withdrawn than return "Withdrawn" Otherwise "Completed"

I've managed to make this work in Excel with the current code.

=IF(OR(B2="Break/Paused",C2=D2,C2=0),B2,IF(\$G\$3<C2,"Not Started",IF(AND(\$G\$3>C2,\$H\$3<D2,D2<>0),"In Progress",IF(B2="In Progress","In Progress",IF(B2="Withdrawn","Withdrawn","Completed")))))

Where B is Apprentice Status

C Start is Start Date

D is Status Date.

G&H would be date used for the slicer, It is just fixed in Excel for conventiece. So for example if the slicer is set to 01/04/2021 – 01/04/2022, it will tell me all the live adoptions during that period.

I've tried doing this in DAX with the following code, but not going to lie I don't really know what I'm doing!

Datesbetween =
VAR EndDate = MAX('Fiscal Table'[Date])
VAR StartDate = MIN('Fiscal Table'[Date])
VAR Result =
CALCULATE(
REMOVEFILTERS('Fiscal Table'),
)
Return
Result

Hi all, I'm still struggling with this issue and updated with more detail. I hope it makes more sense now!

@George_H , to me \$J\$1 seem like static value , that you can have in var

Var _val = <Value of \$j1>

return

=IF(OR(B2="Break/Paused",[C]=0),B2,IF(_val <[C],"Not Started",IF(AND(_val >[C],_val<[D],[D]<>0),"In Progress",IF([B]="In Progress","In Progress",IF([D[="Withdrawn","Withdrawn","Completed")))))

You can also use switch true

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me. I didn't explain it, but J\$1 would be the dates in the slicer it would be checking through.

How I want it to work is to be able to slice down date ranges, so for example  “how many pet adoptions were live between 01/04/2021 – 01/04/2022”I want my dashboard to be able to count the number of pet adoptions that are in progress during sliced times.
