Dax Switch statement - Need help in implementation

Hi ,

 

I need to implement a below logic in Power BI using DAX. I  am unable to call the other tables(Purchase[Last_day],Timedim[Last_Day]) in the switch condition. 

 

case when (( SALES.REQUEST_DT ) is null) or ( SALES.REQUEST_DT ) >= to_date('1-12-2005','MM-DD-YYYY') then 'P'
when ( SALES.REQUEST_DT )<=( Purchase.Last_Day ) then 'PDue'
when ( SALES.REQUEST_DT ) between to_date('08-10-2010','MM-DD-YYYY') and to_date('10-11-2010','MM-DD-YYYY') then 'BO'
when ( SALES.REQUEST_DT ) between ( Timedim.Last_Day )+1 and to_date('01-10-2010','MM-DD-YYYY') then 'After'
else
to_char(to_date(Customer_Dt.FISCAL_MONTH || '/' || Customer_Dt.FISCAL_YEAR,'MM/YYYY'),'MON-YY')
end

 

Need help how to implement this using Power BI. Any help is highly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

@korare532 - Sure, you can do that using RELATED or RELATEDTABLE if they are related and using LOOKUPVALUE or MAXX(FILTER('Other Table',<filter criteria>),<column in other table>)

Hi @korare532 ,

 

You may create relationships between the table 'SALES' and  'Purchase',  'SALES' and  'Timedim' on related date with Both of Cross filter direction, or these tables have been linked by intermediate tables such as Calendar table,  then use RELATED function to get Purchase[Last_day] and Timedim[Last_Day] in formula.

HI @korare532 

Enclose it in SELECTEDVALUE() function, like below.

(SELECTEDVALUE(Purchase[Last_day]),SELECTEDVALUE(Timedim[Last_Day])) 

 





Hope it resolves your issue?

@korare532 - Use SWITCH(TRUE()...)

Hi @Greg_Deckler ,

 

I tried using switch ( true()..) but my corncern over here is i am unable to call the other table (Purchase) to compare dates. Is there a way to implement it.

 

Thanks.
