Measure for net gain/loss

Hello, i'm trying to calculate the net gain or loss using two different date columns.  One column is 'join date' and the other is called 'leave date'.  Join date always has a value and leave date might not if someone is still active.

 

I'm not sure how to do this in DAX as i need to COUNT distinct ID's, for both date columns and then calculate the difference between each yearly value:

Any ideas?

thanks

Hi @rogerdea ,

 

You will need to unpivot the columns JoinDate and LeaveDate.

Click on Unpivot Columns

After unpivoting your table will look like below.

Create a Calculated Column

 

Year = YEAR('Table'[Date])
 
 
Create a Measure

 

Net Gain/Loss =

var _DistinctCount_Joining_by_year = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[ID]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Join/Leave] = "JoinDate"))

var _DistinctCount_Leave_by_year = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[ID]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Join/Leave] = "LeaveDate"))

RETURN

_DistinctCount_Joining_by_year -_DistinctCount_Leave_by_year
