## DAX FUNCTION

Hi All,

My requirement is to show current month data as a KPI value

Sample Data1:

JAN   0.1

FEB    0.2

Mar   0.3

Apr    0.4

KPI Value = 0.4

Sample Data2:

JAN   0.1

FEB    0.2

Mar   0.0

Apr    0.0

KPI Value = 0.2

If the current month value is 0 , check prio month . If prior month is 0 then look for 2months back value and so on..

Thanks

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

Assuming that Table1 is your table name, the first column is of date type (and is called Date) and there is a measure called Sales = sum(Table1[KPIValue]), then use the formula below

Test =
VAR LastDateWithSales =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( Table1[Date] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( Table1 ), Table1[Date] <= MAX ( Table1[Date] ) && [Sales] > 0 )
)
RETURN
CALCULATE ( [Sales], Table1[Date] = LastDateWithSales )

i got the below result

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

Is the Region coming from a master (lookup) table or is it part of the same Table? If part of the same table, you can just use an ALLEXCEPT

VAR LastDateWithSales =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( Table1[Date] ),
FILTER ( ALLEXCEPT ( Table1, Table1[Region] ), Table1[Date] <= MAX ( Table1[Date] ) && [Sales] > 0 )

This will ensure that the LastDAte is calculated after the filter on Region is done. If Region is coming from a lookup table, you can use the ALLEXCEPT for the field in Table1 that is connecting to the Region lookup table.

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

It would be easier if you had given your model and table structure.

What you have to do is to create a measure

KPI =
VAR MaxMonth =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( Table[Month] ), FILTER ( ALL ( Table ), Table[Sales] > 0 ) )
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table[Sales] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( Table ), Table[Month] = MaxMonth )
)

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

You need to add a measure to you table with following formula and use myKPIValue measure to show the value.

myKPIValue = CALCULATE(MAX(Table1[myValue]), FILTER(ALL(Table1), Table1[myValue]>0))

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

Hi SqlJAson,

what change needs to be done if i have to consider YEAR also.... MAX(table[month],table[year])?

KPI =
VAR MaxMonth =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( Table[Month] ), FILTER ( ALL ( Table ), Table[Sales] > 0 ) )
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table[Sales] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( Table ), Table[Month] = MaxMonth )
)

Thanks

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

Hi Parry2k,

we cant use max aggregation because value will not be in ascending order by month.

Thanks

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

Ideally, there should  be one field in the table which is a combination of Year and Month (if not, you can create it by concatenating year and month). And then use that inside the max.

True, I missed that part. In the case @SqlJason formula will work, Do you see any challenge with that?

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

That is where it is helpful to understand your tables, if you have continuous calendar table, it will help to make time based calculation easy. In case you don't have calendar table, here is the link on how you can create one and link your data table to calendar table.

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

Take your pick

Month Order =
INT (
CONCATENATE (
YEAR ( 'Calendar'[Date] ),
CONCATENATE (
IF ( MONTH ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) < 10, "0", "" ),
MONTH ( 'Calendar'[Date] )
)
)
)

or the easier version

Month Order 2 =
INT (
CONCATENATE ( YEAR ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), FORMAT ( 'Calendar'[Date], "MM" ) )
)

or the easiest version

Month Order 3 =
VALUE ( FORMAT ( Calendar[Date], "YYYYMM" ) )

All 3 do the same!

## Re: DAX FUNCTION

Or even easier,
month order = VALUE(FORMAT(Calendar[Date], "YYYYMM"))
