Dynamic text value showing past few weeks

Hi,

 

I have column 'Week-Year' with records such as 15-2018, 16-2018, .............29-2018. I want to create an expression and might use it as a dynamic text "past _____ weeks". Lets say the starting week is 15-2018 and current week running is 29-2018, the result set should show 14. i.e., "past 14 weeks".

 

No 'Date' realted tables are available in my table.

 

What DAX should I use to get this result set? Do I need to split the column Week and Year and then create DAX?

 

Thanks!

Re: Dynamic text value showing past few weeks

Hi @BBIUser,

 

You could create the calculated column with the formula 1 and create measure with formula 2.

 

1. V_Weeks = LEFT('Table1'[Week-Year],2)
2. Measure = "Past"& MAX('Table1'[V_Weeks])-MIN('Table1'[V_Weeks])&"weeks"

Here is the output.

Re: Dynamic text value showing past few weeks

You can use formula like

V_Weeks=Left(Week-Year)

V_Diff=max(V_Week)-main(V_Week)

Re: Dynamic text value showing past few weeks

Thanks for the reply @avdutta. Having trouble with these expressions.

Is V_Weeks a calculated Column and V_Diff a calculated Measure?
