in CLOSINGBALANCEMONTH is a BUG??
Like: You have a quantity per day and you want to know the quantity every last day per month
If you use it, it will show the quantity combined with the last date of a month, but when there is no quantity on last date of the month, you dont see a quantity.
there are several measures: Northwind database
QuantitySum = SUM('Order Details'[Quantity])
ClosingMonth1 = CLOSINGBALANCEMONTH([QuantitySum]; tblCalendar [Date]) , date based on linked calendar
ClosingMonth2 = CLOSINGBALANCEMONTH([QuantitySum]; Orders[OrderDate]), date based on orderdate
ClosingEOM = CALCULATE ( [QuantitySum];ENDOFMONTH ( tblCalendar[Date] ) )
in july 1996 there is a quantity on the last date of july, so it works
on august 1996 there is no quantity on last date of august, it does not work (combined with date calendar)
july, with result
august, no result
but only based on order date will show the last date which is used (not the last date of a month
ANYONE, IS THIS A BUG??
No it is not a bug - it is working as designed. You need lastnonblank instead. Read my blog here. https://exceleratorbi.com.au/lastnonblank-explained/
