How to: using one column (customer) for multiple date columns in a fact table

Hi

 

I have the below table.

 

Customer, DateSold, first-purchasedate-by-customer (calculated column based on DateSold)

 

I have associated DateSold and first-purchasedate-by-customer to DateDim table for getting YearMonth (yyyymm).

 

I am looking for a good way to create visualization of stacked bar / side-by-side bar:

yyyymm, distinct-count(Customer per yyyymm of DateSold), distinct-count(Customer per yyyymm of first-purchasedate-by-customer)

 

Any suggestions?

 

I am able to create a bar graph with yyyymm and either one column but not the stacked bar.

 

PS: new to DAX & PowerBI

Re: How to: using one column (customer) for multiple date columns in a fact table

Update:

I was able to achieve it by creating a new table with a copy of data from parent table (first-purchasedate-by-customer,Customer) and associating this table first-purchasedate-by-customer to DateDim table & created visualization.
