Hi @subho220 ,

According to my understand, you want to set a segment for Date and then use it as X-axis in chart,right?

You could use the following formula to create a column not a measure.

``````Type =
VAR _max =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( 'Table'[Date] ), ALL ( 'Table'[Date] ) )
VAR _diff =
DATEDIFF ( _max, MAX ( 'Table'[Date] ), DAY )
RETURN
IF (
_diff <= 10,
"<10 days",
IF (
_diff > 10
&& _diff <= 20,
"11-20 days",
IF (
_diff > 20
&& _diff <= 30,
"21-30 days",
IF (
_diff > 30
&& _diff <= 40,
"31-40 days",
IF ( _diff > 40 && _diff <= 50, "41-50 days", IF ( _diff > 50, ">50 days" ) )
)
)
)
)``````

My visualization looks like this:

@subho220 , Create a new column like

new column =
var _diff = datediff([Lab Date], today(),day)
return
switch(true(),
_diff<10 , " Less than 10 days",
_diff<20 , " 11 to 20 Days ",
)
