## Compare dates from two different tables

Hello Power BI Champions!!

I am trying to compare two dates from two tables and the relationship between the columns is active.

I wrote the following calculation to get 1 and 0.

Column=

If (Table1[Ticket Close Date]> Related Table2 [End of month],1,0)

but Im not getting 1 as a result? where am i going wrong?

* Also what will be the calculation, if the relationship is not active?  Thanks a lot!!

Table - 1                                                                                               Table-2

 Ticket Close Date End of month 22/Sept/2020 31/08/2020

if the relationship is not active, you need to use the userelationship() function to force the measure you want to look at a specific date.

more information here.

however looking at your code, what are you joining on relationship wise.

@vanessafvg  I am not joining anything!

I am trying to find out, which date is greater from the both tables and if its greater give me 1 else 0.

Thanks!

why are you creating a column rather than a measures? ok if there is no relationship between the tables - what is the purpose of what you are doing so i can understand better, what is your objective?

if you are just trying to get the max date from each table

ie.
isgreater =
VAR maxtable1 =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( table1[date] ) )
VAR maxtable2 =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( table2[date] ) )
RETURN
IF ( maxtable1 > maxtable2, 1, 0 )

My purpose is to din out;

a) Ticket open at the end of each month

b) also want to know, what was the status of that ticket last month.

For eg: I have a ticket which is opened in 1st July and closed on 25th Sept.

Ticket Status will be

end of month July- Open

end of month Aug-Open

end of month Sep- Closed

I want to see the status of ticket per month as it is, till it get closed. if i pull the report in dec, it should show me ( July= Open, Aug= Open and Sept = Closed). I use date ticket closed to determine open and close.

To achieve this, I am brining an external table, called end of month, which is formatted and has all dates similar to my date tables and want to use the blow logic.

If date closed> end of month ( different table) || - this wil bring all the closed one.

Isblank date closed- to check current status &&

date opened<= end of month,1,0) - to limit my ticket to less than end of month.

 End of month Condtion 1 Condition 2 Condition 3 Status July 1 1 1 Open Aug 1 1 1 Open Seven 0 0 1 Closed Oct 0 0 1 Closed

My purpose is to find out the

Tickets open at the end of each month.

Also want to know, what was the status of that ticket last month.

For eg;

I have a ticket, which is opened in 1st July and closed on 25th September.

For the month of 31st July the status is open.

For the month of August the status is open.

But for the month of September it is closed.

So I want to see the status of ticket per month as it is, till it get closed. (In this case July-Open, Aug-Open), If I pull a report in December, I still want to see the same status.

I am using the date closed to identify if a ticket is open or closed.

To achieve this, I am brining an external table, called of end of month, which is formatted and has all dates similar to my date closed table… from 2018 and want to use the below logic ( don’t know if it works ☹)

If date closed > end of the month (external table) – ( This will bring the closed ones also)

|| isblank date closed – check the status

&& date opened<= end of month, 1,0 ( This will limit my ticket to less than end of month)

 End of Month Condition 1 Condition 2 && Condition 3 Status July 1 1 1 Open August 1 1 1 Open September0 0 1 Closed October 0 0 1 Closed

I will use end of month date as a filter 😊
