Contiguous date solutions DATEADD with sumx and if(hasonevalue... functions


I am trying to know the variation of the number of reservations between 2 dates for each agency.  Reservation table contains reservation number and date and agency table is ralated to this table throuh agency id.

I can get the variation result of the total amount of reservations but when I add the agency value to the report to know the variation for each agency I get the DATEADD contiguous error.

In this forum I could read as a solved problem using sumx or if(hasonevalue... so I used in my formula, the error disapears but the results I get are not correct when using Sumx and also doesn't give a total result but only individual results when I tried with" if(hasonevalue..."


The original formulas I used are:

Dates = calendar(min(RESERVATION[day]);max(RESERVATION[day]))

Num of dif reserv = distinctcount (RESERVATIONS[Reservation ID]

Num of dif reserv same day LY= calculate([Num of dif reserv];DATEADD(Dates[Dates Reserv]; -363;DAY )

Var dif reserv=[Num of dif reserv]-[Num of dif reserv same day LY]


This works until I introduce AGENCY column in the report. Then contiguos error apears in [Num of dif reserv same day LY] DATEADD function.


So I tried instead to avoid the error:

Num of dif reserv same day LY= sumx(calculate([Num of dif reserv];DATEADD(Dates[Dates Reserv]; -363;DAY ))

-->This returns a larger number which is not the right result "792"



if(HASONEVALUE(Dates[Dates Reserv]);calculate([Num of dif reserv];DATEADD(Dates[Dates reserv]; -363;DAY ));0)

-->In the table report mode I see each individual variation for each day  but it returns "0" as result of total variation which is not right.


Is there a way I can get the same result I was getting with my original formulas but being able to segment this for each agency?


I would apreciate your help very much!


Thank you,





Hi @marcgotzens


I think your question is very similar to this topic for which I suggested a solution based on Power Query !

Let us know how it works for you.

Dear Excelside,


Thank you very much for your reply.

I took a look at your solved topic but I am new at power bi and not clear at how to apply that to my particular case with power query.

All I would like to know how many reservations for each agency in a date axis, and be able to visualize Drilling up and expanding down in the date hieracy (year, quarter, month). It will not be a problem as long as the dateadd function doesn't crash.


Thank you,
