MTD - Calculation not working

PhotoforPBX-Community.PNG

Please see the image above, I have attempted to calculate the count for the month to date as you can see. I would expect on the 15/09 as I am perfoming this calculation it should return 145 adding up all the values in red. However for some reason it is only providing 2. Can you advise why. 

 

FYI: The field types are Whole Number and Date respectivly.

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!

@andrewb95 , You should always use date table joined with date of your table

 

calculate(sum('Total -Count'[Count]), datesmtd('Date'[Date]))

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.

Hi Amit, 

 

When creating a relationship to the date table (which I have updated as indicated above) the value actually changes to null so this is very unusual. 

 

 

Hi @andrewb95 ,

 

I could not reproduct your problem. Maybe you can try the following measures:

 

Measure1 = 
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Total - Count'[Count]),
    ALL('Total - Count'[Date]),
    DATESMTD('Total - Count'[Date])
)
Measure2 = 
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Total - Count'[Count] ),
    FILTER (
        ALL ( 'Total - Count' ),
        'Total - Count'[Date] <= TODAY ()
            && 'Total - Count'[Date] <= MAX ( 'Total - Count'[Date] )
            && FORMAT ( 'Total - Count'[Date], "yyyymm" )
                = FORMAT ( MAX ( 'Total - Count'[Date] ), "yyyymm" )
    )
)
