Flatlined values in a MTD table

Hi Guys

Whats the esiest reusable method to discontinue flatlined values in YTD/MTD/WTD tables/graphs/BarCharts, such as this example:

Data stops at 2. of February and thereby the chart flatlines. I wish to see only the current data as new data gets loaded to the dataset.

DAX for the MTD measure is:

 

TotalSalesValueMTD =
CALCULATE([SalesValue], DATESMTD('Date'[Date]))

 

How do you guys do it?

Hi, @MacJasem 

 

You can try the following methods.

Measure = IF([TotalSalesValueMTD]=0,0,1)

Is this the result you expect?

I figured it out by entering a filter in the dax measure ny using the ALLSELECTED function like this;

 

TotalSalesValueMTD =
CALCULATE ([SalesValue],
    DATESMTD ( 'Date'[Date] ),
          FILTER ( ALLSELECTED ( 'Date' ), 'Date'[Date] <= MAX ( FactSales[OrderDate] )))

You could create a measure like

Date is visible =
VAR LastSaleDate =
    CALCULATE ( MAX ( 'Sales'[Date] ), ALL ( 'Sales' ) )
VAR CurrentDate =
    MAX ( 'Date'[Date] )
RETURN
    IF ( CurrentDate <= LastSaleDate, 1 )

and add that as a filter to the visual, to only show when the value is 1.

Hi @johnt75 

 

Thanks for the tip. I tried it but still didn't get the flatline discontinued. I might be doing something wrong?

Could you explain in few words, for me and perhaps for others gain, what the measure does?

 

The principle is that the Date table will always have dates into the future, whereas the sales table would only have dates for which there are sales. You want the chart to stop at the last date on which there are sales, so you only want to show data when the maximum date visible in the current filter context, as generated by the visual, is on or before the last ever sales date. That is what you did in your FILTER.
