## How to calculate a season column?

Hello,

I would like to calculate a column in a query that reflects the season according to the date.
Each season starts on September 1 and ends on August 31.

The column should look like the following:

 TIME SEASON 01/10/2012 12-13 06/06/2014 13-14 10/03/2016 15-16

Thank you very much and best regards.

Hi @Isidro,

You could use below DAX to create a calculated column.

```Season =
IF (
'Time-Season'[TIME].[MonthNo] >= 9
&& 'Time-Season'[TIME].[MonthNo] <= 12,
'Time-Season'[TIME].[Year] & "-"
& 'Time-Season'[TIME].[Year] + 1,
'Time-Season'[TIME].[Year] - 1
& "-"
& 'Time-Season'[TIME].[Year]
)```

If there was another column with an item and each item had a different season, how would you add that in to the DAX equation? For example: Activity Date Season Surfing 1/6/2019 2018-2019 Biking 3/7/2017 2017-2018 Sailing 8/27/2018 2018 Surfing 7/6/2018 2018-2019 Biking 9/1/2017 2017-2018 Sailing 10/4/2019 2019 And the seasons for each is: Surfing 4/1-3/31 Biking 7/1-6/30 Sailing 1/1-12/31

My previous post was unformatted. f there was another column with an item and each item had a different season, how would you add that in to the DAX equation? For example:

And the seasons for each is: Surfing 4/1-3/31 Biking 7/1-6/30 Sailing 1/1-12/31

Hello Yuliana,

Great!!! I have tried it and it works perfectly. Later I used the following formula to get the final result that I want:

MID(

'Time-Season'[Season];3;2

)

&"-"&

MID(

'Time-Season'[Season];8;2

)

Thank you very much and best regards.
