Column chart from multiple dates

Hi all,

 

I have a table with multiple dates. We want to show per month, in a column chart, how many items were created and closed. Not all items already have a closing date. What's the best way to achive this in Power BI?

Hi,

 

I've replicated your problem with some dummy data.

What you can do is create a date table with:

Calender = CALENDARAUTO()

Then you have to setup the relationships Calendar[date] with table[create date] and an relatoinship on [date] and [closed date].

 

You can then use the following measures:

CountCreate = COUNT(Table1[Create Date])
CountClosed = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Closed Date]),USERELATIONSHIP(Calender[Date],Table1[Closed Date]))

That should work
