Dynamic DATEFunction

Hi Everyone,

 

i am trying to calculate "Winter sale" and want to build the dynamic "Date" so that power bi calpture that period and give results according to that. 

Below is my DAX, but it is not working, seems that "Date" Measure inside is not accepting same:

 

Winter Sales = VAR LADATE = MAX('Date'[Date])
VAR CYR = YEAR(LADATE)

RETURN
CALCULATE([Sales Amount],KEEPFILTERS(FILTER(ALL('Date'[Date]),
'Date'[Date] >= DATE(CYR,12,01) &&
'Date'[Date] <= DATE(CYR,02,28)
)))

Hey @sandee ,

 

if I understand it right the winter sales should just cover the sales in December, January and February, correct?

In this case I would just filter to these months. Check if the following measure would work:

Winter Sales =
CALCULATE(
    [Sales Amount],
    MONTH( 'Date'[Date] )
        IN {
        12,
        1,
        2
    }
)

 

Also be aware that your approach wouldn't cover February 29th in a leap year.

 

If you need any help please let me know.
If I answered your question I would be happy if you could mark my post as a solution ✔️ and give it a thumbs up 👍
 
Best regards
Denis

Hey @sandee ,

 

I'm happy it worked 🙂

That's also normal, many times I was thinking way too complicated. But when you write more DAX thing will get easier. Keep going 🙂

 

Have fun and best regards
