## 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!

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.

If you still need help, please share some data sample and your desired output so that we could help further on it.

You can use formula like

V_Weeks=Left(Week-Year)

V_Diff=max(V_Week)-main(V_Week)

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

Is V_Weeks a calculated Column and V_Diff a calculated Measure?
