Get value of column searching in between dates

I need to get the field "Name" from "Table1" in a calculated column in "Table2", like:

Table1:

Name | Date
ABC  | 5-jan-2017
ABC  | 7-jan-2017
DEF  | 8-may-2018
DEF  | 10-jun-2018

And Table2:

Date         | CalcColumn
6-Jan-2017   | ABC
25-may-2018  | DEF

The logic is the following: If Date in Table2 is within the minimum and maximum dates of Table1then get the name in Table1.

Hi @webportal

That's weird. Have a look at this file where I've run a quick test with the sample data you provided. Maybe there's something different from what you are doing?

Hi @webportal

Try this for your calculated column in Table2:

 

NewColumn =
CONCATENATEX (
    FILTER (
        ALL ( Table1[Name] );
        CALCULATE ( MIN ( Table1[Date] ) ) <= Table2[Date]
            && CALCULATE ( MAX ( Table1[Date] ) ) >= Table2[Date]
    );
    Table1[Name];
    ", "
)

This will also work if there is more than one name in Table1 meeting the requirement. If so, all names will be shown separated by commas.

Hello @AlB

The expression makes sense, but I'm getting an empty column, have no idea why.
