Calculate if value is between dates

Hello all, 

 

I already tried making this topic last week, but it seems to have vanished. 

I'm new to power BI and dax and could use some assistance. 

 

I have a table with cases something like the table below:

ID      createdate      closedate

1        01-01-17        15-02-17

2        02-01-17        10-01-17

3        03-01-17        null

 

The close date can be "null", meaning that the case is still open. I also created a date dimension table, with everything from year to days, there is no relation between the Date and Case table. 

 

I need an meassurement which will count all the "active" cases. Meaning that it will count all the cases that are open on a certain date. example: on the 9th of Januari (09-01-17) there are 3 cases active. On the 20th of januari (20-01-17) there are 2 cases active (1 and 3 in the example). 

 

Can you help me out? i have been trying different measurements and codes for a few days now!

 

Thank you very much in advance!

Works perfectly now. My bad for testing it the wrong way 

Good to hear.

Could you maybe explain how it works? Because i have trouble understanding the solution. 

Hi,

 

Have you tested the result? Does the solution work?  In the Query Editor, i have basically created a single column of dates from your start and end date columns.  So the query loaded to the Data Model has only 2 columns - ID and Date.

Hi Ashish, 

 

It seems to do what i want, but i cant test it yet in my enviroment. Can you explain "added custom 1" ({ Number.From([Createdate])..Number.From([Custom]) }) so that i can try to implement it in my enviroment? 

 

Thank you in advance!!

Hi,

 

That line creates a single column table with all dates from start to end for each ID.

I understand now. I do get an error " The number is out of range of a 32 bit integer value Details: 42359.66638"

Any tips to fix that?

@AndreLap,

Ashish_Mathur's PBIX file works well in my environment. Would you please post complete data of your table for us to test?

Lydia

Hi @AndreLap

 

First thing to do is, have a time slicer to select the date you want to see the information from. 

Next thing you do, create meausre:

active = CALCULTATE(COUNTROWS(tablename), closedata = "null")

Then select your date you want to see

hi @miltenburger,

 

Thank you for your answer. Unfortunatly this seems to return an error, and with some changes it only seem to retrieve cases that are currently open (closedate null). I'm looking for all the active cases of a day in history (the slicer was a good idea!). 

 

so it should only return cases for which:

create date <= [date selected] < end date  AND create date <= [date selected with end date = null.

 

Any further ideas? Cause it is greatly appriciated :)!
