## Creating an 'Open' Measure to show if something is open against a date period e.g month

Im just starting to think about how to display the following

Start Date        End Date             Fact

A   05/02/2019      06/09/2019        1

B   20/04/2019      03/05/2019         1

C   01/05/2019      29/05/2019         1

Obviously if you want to show by Start date you would get the following

Feb 19    Apr 19    May 19

A    1

B                   1

C                                  1

But what happens  you want to display that its open between start and end dates ?

Feb 19    May 19 Apr 19    May 19   Jun 19 Jul 19 Aug 19 Sep 19 Oct 19

A    1             1          1            1             1          1          1          1         1

B                                1            1

C                                              1

Is there an easy way of setting this up as a dax measure so you can create an 'open' Measure to use?

Hi @DebbieE ,

try this:

``````Fact Start =
CALCULATE(
SUM('Table'[Fact]);
FILTER(
ALLSELECTED('Date'[Date]);
'Date'[Date] <= MAX('Date'[Date])
)
)``````

``````Fact End =
CALCULATE(
SUM('Table'[Fact]);
FILTER(
ALLSELECTED('Date'[Date]);
ENDOFMONTH('Date'[Date]) < MAX('Date'[Date])
);USERELATIONSHIP('Date'[Date];'Table'[End Date])
)``````

Try something like this

``calculate(count(claims[id]),filter(claims,claims[Open Date]<ENDOFMONTH('Date'[Date Filer]) && claims[Close Date]>ENDOFMONTH('Date'[Date Filer]) )``

Hi, thanks for the response. This one doesnt work because I have a start and and end date not single date.

## Re: Creating an 'Open' Measure to show if something is open against a date period e.g month

mwegener the solution isnt quite working.

This account is open from Januar through to March.

However in March, the open flag isnt being set because

If Account Start - Account End = 0 Then put nothing Else Account Start - Account End

January 1 - 0 = 1 So its set as 1

February 1 - 0 = 1 So its set as 1

March 1-1 = 0 so its set as not open

I dont know how to stop the Start Date Measure in March using the DAX you sent to me

## Re: Creating an 'Open' Measure to show if something is open against a date period e.g month

Hi @DebbieE,

what do you wish?

Should March still be displayed as open?

## Re: Creating an 'Open' Measure to show if something is open against a date period e.g month

This specific account closed on the 12st of March so it should be open in March and fully closed in April.

Ive tried to amend the measures slightly but Ive not been able to figure out how to do it.

I understand the Open DAX but Im struggling to get my head around the Fact_Start and Fact_End Dax
