For what reason would CLOSINGMONTHBALANCE be 0?

I have the following measure (CLOSINGBALANCEMONTH(sum('Patient Numbers'[ClosingBalance]),'Patient Numbers'[MonthCode]))

 

but its showing 0, any idea why it wouldn't be returning values?  i definitely do have datea, for example if i just did a sum on the column data is returned, wondering what i need to check?

Hi @vanessafvg

 

The syntax is using CLOSINGBALANCEMONTH(<expression>,<dates>[,<filter>])

 

where the dates argument can be any of the following:

  • A reference to a date/time column.

  • A table expression that returns a single column of date/time values.

  • A Boolean expression that defines a single-column table of date/time values.

Make sure 'Patient Numbers'[MonthCode] follows any one of the above date argument.

 

Thanks,

Himanshu

hi @himanshu56

 

thanks for responding,  monthcode is a date column, so that woudn't be the issue i think?  month date looks like this

01/09/2016

and in the  data model it is seen as a date datatype

Hi @vanessafvg,

 

Could you post your table structure with some sample data which can reproduce this issue, so that we can help further investigate on it? It's better to share a sample pbix file. You can upload it to OneDrive or Dropbox and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading. Smiley Happy
