DAX Formula to Return First Date Based on Other column

Hi All,

 

I'm trying to create a column that calculates the original due date for a set of items that have due dates that can be extended over and over again. For example, in this table, I want the "Original Due Date" column to look up the earliest date from the "Due Date" column based on the "Item" name (i.e. for the "Blue" Item, the original due date was 1/5/18, and for the "Red" Item, the original due date was 3/2/19).

Here is the formula I am trying:

 

Original Due Date = CALCULATE(MIN('Table'[Due Date]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Item]))
 
The problem is it's throwing the error: "Cannot convert value 'Blue' of type Text to type True/False".
 
Do any of you DAX geniuses (genii) out there know where I'm going wrong? Any help is much appreciated!
 
Thanks in advance!

Dear rdcooper,

 

Is this you expected?

The DAX Expression i have used to get this as follows.

 

Measure_OrderDate = CALCULATE(MIN(PBI_Data[OrderDate]), ALLEXCEPT(PBI_Data,PBI_Data[Item]))

You can use Groupby in PQ to get that figure pretty easily:

Re: DAX Formula to Return First Date Based on Other column

Wow thank you so much @Zubair_Muhammad, @Anonymous, @Nick_M - can't believe it was that easy! I had actually found the similar solution @Zubair_Muhammad offered in an almost identical post to mine (here), but I didn't think "ALLEXCEPT" would make sense since the name of the function is counterintuitive - I would have thought that would have returned the earliest due date for all rows except the ones with the Item name I was interested in. Weirdly enough, it works though. Thanks again!
