Re: Date Hierarchy issues at KPI

Thanks for that.

Is your data stored monthly or by Year?

Also have you enabled the Automatic Time Hierarchy?

 

Here is a video with the details: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/guided-learning/powerbi-learning-3-11g-visual-hierarchies-drilli...

 

Or an alternative is to create a Date table, and then once you have got the date table, you can then create a relationship between your data table and your Date Table. After which you are then able to use the columns from the Date table. As with your example it would then be month.
