Calculating Min/Max date columns based on selected values

Hi,

 

I am trying to insert 2 new columns into my dataset containing the MIN/MAX values of the date slicer.

I was thinking about the following DAX, but it throws me a circular dependency error.

Min selected date (ALLSELECTED) = 
CALCULATE( MIN('Calendar'[Date]), ALLSELECTED('Calendar'[Date]) )

Appreciate if anyone would have an idea.

Hi,

 

You have to write measures, not calculated column formulas.  Delete all column from the Calendar Table except the Date column.  Write these measures

 

Minimum date = CALCULATE(MIN('Calendar'[Date]),ALLSELECTED('Calendar'[Date]))

Maximum date = CALCULATE(MAX('Calendar'[Date]),ALLSELECTED('Calendar'[Date]))

 

Hope this helps.

Hi @Maikeru

 

 

Try the following as columns

 

 

MinDate = CALCULATE( MIN('01-MasterCalendar'[Date]),
                       FILTER(ALL('01-MasterCalendar'[Date]),'01-MasterCalendar'[Year] =YEAR('01-MasterCalendar'[Date]) ))

 

MaxDate = CALCULATE( Max('01-MasterCalendar'[Date]),
                       FILTER(ALL('01-MasterCalendar'[Date]),'01-MasterCalendar'[Year] =YEAR('01-MasterCalendar'[Date]) ))

 

Replace '01-MasterCalendar' with your calendar table name.

 

Using these expressions it will generate MIn and Max dates for each year in the calendar table.

 

 

If this works for you please accept this as solution and also give KUDOS.

 

Cheers

Hi @Ashish_Mathur , is it possible have this as a column?

 

im saying this because im using a Matrix table so it doesnt allow measures in the rows.

Hi,

Switch to a matrix visual and in the formatting pane, under the Values group, turn on Show on rows.
