DAX ALL not working as expected using date

Hi,

 

I have a measure that aggregate sales for the last seven days, see below. I want this to ignore the date slicer. However that isn't happening. The value should be £220.77K for the last seven days.  But if I change the date slicer the value changes and is instead showing the last seven day value from the 06.09.2021.

 

Can anyone help me understand why this is happening?

 

Measure = CALCULATE (
    'Measures Table'[Sum_Gross_Sales],
    DATESBETWEEN (
        'Calendar'[Date],
        MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) - 7,
        MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) - 1
    ), ALL('Calendar'[Date])
)

The ALL('Calendar'[Date]) is not being applied to the DATESBETWEEN function, it is only being applied to the [Sum_gross_sales] measure, so when you call MAX('Calendar'[Date]) the slicer is still in effect. 

If your Calendar table is marked as a date table then you don't need to remove filters from the 'Calendar'[Date] column if you apply another filter to that column, DAX takes care of that automatically. Try using

Last 7 days = CALCULATE( [Sum_Gross_Sales], DATESBETWEEN( 'Calendar'[Date], TODAY() -7, TODAY() - 1) )

Hi,

Could you please try the below measure if it shows the outcome that is expected?

 

Measure: =
VAR _lastdateincalendartable =
    CALCULATE ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), REMOVEFILTERS () )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        'Measures Table'[Sum_Gross_Sales],
        DATESBETWEEN (
            'Calendar'[Date],
            _lastdateincalendartable - 7,
            _lastdateincalendartable - 1
        )
    )

Thank you John, that solved my issues.
