DAX - How to flag with multiple conditions

I have a table as defined below. The DAX column is the column I am trying to create.

 

I want to have the DAX column flag each row with a yes or no. 

 

Conditions for a yes

  • Person was at a location on Oct 1, 2018 (last day of the quarter)
  • Person was at the same location any other date previous in 2018

 

Condition for no

  • Person was at a different location on Oct 1, 2018 than the location specified on the date (ex: Jane was at location B on Oct 1, and therefore gets flagged yes on location B but not A for every other date)
  • Person was not any any location on Oct 1, 2018 (ex: Mike has only 1 date that is not Oct 1).

 

How would I write the DAX for this flag? I've tried to think of a way to do it with a nested IF but I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks.

Re: DAX - How to flag with multiple conditions

Hi @tasmiaa

Try this for your column. It assumes that no rows have a blank() at Location:

 

 

DAXColumn =
VAR _OctoberLocation =
    LOOKUPVALUE (
        Table1[Location],
        Table1[Date], DATE ( 2018, 10, 1 ),
        Table1[Name], Table1[Name]
    )
RETURN
    IF ( Table1[Location] = _OctoberLocation, "Yes", "No" )

Thank you! That worked wonderfully! I didn't even know I could make a var.
