Date diff with duplicate values

Hello all,


I am trying to create a calculated column that gives the age (in days) between a date in a column and the current date. I then want to create an additional measure based on this one. The date column has duplicate values in a second column called "record no," and the problem is that when I create the "age" measure it sums up the age on the duplicate "record no" column, and that affects the second measure based on other parameters. In a nutshell, I want to see the age for each "record no" based on the date, but I don't want it to aggregate based on the multiple duplicate rows of record no. Thank you in advance!

Hi @socal225 ,


What are the other measures?


You can Calculated Columns


Days Elapsed = DATEDIFF('Table'[DateTime],Today(),DAY)
Ageing = IF (Table[Days Elapsed] > 50, "above 50 Days", "Below 50 Days")
and then create a measure
Ageing Details = COUNT(Table[RecordNo])

You could do it as a calcualted table that you link back to your main table based on the item number.


Table 2 =
    SUMMARIZE ( 'Table', 'Table'[Item], 'Table'[Date] ),
    "DateDiff", DATEDIFF ( 'Table'[Date], TODAY (), DAY )

If you can do it as a measure instead that might be easier.

DateDiff = 
VAR _ItemDate = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Date])
