## Calculate based on user selected From date in date slicer

Dear All,

From the above highlighted From date value in date slicer,I need to write measure
Like,

1) measure=CALCULATE(SUM(table1[qty]),FILTER(table1,table1[Type]="VS"),

FILTER(table1,table1[Date] = table1[SelectedDate]),GROUPBY(table1,table1[Item]))

2) SelectedDate measure = selectedvalue(table1[Date])

With out taking MIN(date) in selectedDate measure,I need to get the selected value directly from the date slicer's from part.

Just looking at your Initial question;

Try adding the Min date to a Variable.

VAR MIN = Min(TransactiondateDate)

VAR MAX = Max(TransactiondateDate)

RETURN
CALCULATE....

Hi @RobbeVL

If I use MIN(transactiondate) then it will be same as the user selected values from the date slicer?

Because what I basically need is,I should get the data from the exact value choosen by user that too in the highlighted part from the attached screenshot i.e.; assume(From Date)

Why dont you try and find out ? 😉

But if you use a visual that is filtered trough that slicer.
Your min and max date will indeed be the one selected in the slicer (make sure you use the same column in the measure as in the slicer)

I Tried with the Min transaction date,but I'm getting the expected result only when I select both the from date and to date.

You'll have to adjust to something like this:
Ideally you would use a DateDimension though

```measure=
VAR minDate = MIN(table1[Date])
VAR maxDate = MAX(table1[Date])
RETURN

CALCULATE(
SUM(table1[qty]),
FILTER(table1,table1[Type]="VS"),
FILTER(table1,table1[Date] >= minDate),
FILTER(table1,table1[Date] <=  maxDate),
GROUPBY(table1,table1[Item])
)```

Hi @RobbeVL

Facing an issue using the measure you've shared with me.

1) measure =
VAR minDate = MIN(table1[Date])
VAR maxDate = MAX(table1[Date])
RETURN
CALCULATE(
SUM(table1[qty]),
FILTER(table1,table1[Type]="VS"),
FILTER(table1,table1[Date] = minDate), --- equal to min date is the requirement
GROUPBY(table1,table1[Number])
)

2) Opening = IF(ISBLANK([AA Opng measure]),0,[AA Opng measure])

That measure works fine when the excel sheet contains exact data,but it's returning the same value for the date which is not there in the sheet.

In sheet there are only 3 dates that is 1-Aug-2019,16-Aug-2019 and 5-Aug-2019.If I select Date other than these I should get Zero,but actually for 6th aug 2019 the value of 16th aug 2019 is showing.

Please find the attached sample data for your reference,hope you will get to know what is the exact issue.
