Hi @AlexRao 

 

Download PBIX with example shown below

 

The format of the date and the underlying date value are different things.  You can have a date formatted mm/dd/yy and compare that to a date formatted like Tuesday, Mar 2 2021.

For example, this table has 2 columns of dates formatted differently.  But I can write a measure to check if the dates are in the same month

Same Month = IF( MONTH(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Date])) = MONTH(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Date + 10])), "Yes","No")

Can you supply some sample data so I can give you more solid examples.

Regards

Phil
