# Dates issue: is a contract active in year 2017?

Hi!

I have two date columns in Power BI. One states the first day of a work contract, the second the end date. My boss wants to know how many contracts were 'active' in year 2017. And how many in 2018, etc. The idea is to make a slicer.

I thought I'd create new columns, called 'Working in 2017' and so on. I'm looking for a query or Dax function that will retrun a Yes (or 1) or No (or 0). So someone who started working on 1-1-2018 and will stop midway 2019, will get a No at 'Working in 2017' and a Yes at 'Working in 2018' and 'Working in 2019'.

Hoping someone can and will help me. Thanks!

Hi, @Hofstede @Tom

With the previous solution a startdate of contract in 2016 and enddate in 2018 won't be active in 2017 right?

So maybe something like this in DAX:
Working in 2017 = if( TABLE[Start Contract] <= DATE(2017;12;31 ) && TABLE[End Contract] >= DATE(2017;1;1); "Yes"; "No" )
Working in 2018 = if( TABLE[Start Contract] <= DATE(2018;12;31 ) && TABLE[End Contract] >= DATE(2018;1;1); "Yes"; "No" )
Working in 2019 = if( TABLE[Start Contract] <= DATE(2019;12;31 ) && TABLE[End Contract] >= DATE(2019;1;1); "Yes"; "No" )

Correct me if i'm wrong!

Kind regards,

=IF(AND([Start Contract]>=DATE(2017,1,1),[End Contract]>=DATE(2017,12,31),1,0)
