Im very new to Power BI and i'm sure this is fairly simple but i can't figure it out.

How would i create a measure to subtract from the first row of start date / start time from the last row of end date / end time.

I removed the duplicates and created a index column to come up with a whole number but im in need of a decimal number of total days from start to finish. Thanks in advance!

Hi @JEFF32788 ,

Is this what you are looking for? I merged the 2 columns for start and end to get a datetime, then added a column with Date diffTime.PNG

Time Diff = Divide(DATEDIFF(Min('start'[Start]),MAX('start'[End]),HOUR),24)


Let me know if you have any questions.

If this solves your issues, please mark it as the solution, so that others can find it easily. Kudos are nice too.
