Lookup value based on start and end date conditions from another table

Hi. I want to calculate a column if an instance is true. 

 

I have two tables. Table one where I have a date for each date a car is at a location.

 

 

CAR ID

Location

Date

1

A

1/1/2020

1

A

2/1/2020

1

A

3/1/2020

A

4/1/2020

2

B

10/1/2020

2

B

11/1/2020

2

B

12/1/2020

3

B

10/2/2020

3

B

11/2/2020

3

B

12/2/2020

 

This shows that Car 1 has been on location A between 1/1/2020 and 4/1/2020, and so on.

 

Further I have a table showing the usage of these cars per rental agreements. 

 

Car ID

Start date

End date

1

1/1/2020

3/1/2020

2

10/1/2020

10/1/2020

2

11/1/2020

11/1/2020

3

10/2/2020

11/2/2020

 

Expected result:

CAR ID

Location

Date

Is used (1 = Yes / 0 = No

1

A

1/1/2020

2/1/2020

So basically what I want is to calculate the column "Is Used" in Table 1 based on if the Date in Table 1 is between Start and End date in table 2 for some rows with Car ID matching. 

 

Anyone?

 

In advance, thank you so much. 

 

Best regards, 

Ruben

Hi,

Please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

It is for creating a new column.

Is used CC =
IF (
    COUNTROWS (
        FILTER (
            Agreement,
            Agreement[Car ID] = Location[CAR ID]
                && Agreement[Start date] <= Location[Date]
                && Agreement[End date] >= Location[Date]
        )
    ) = 0,
    0,
    1
)

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!
