Measure showing blanks when changing context from days to months

Hi there, I hope someone can help here...
 
Scheduled Sales =
VAR Last Billable Date = CALCULATE(MAX(Sales[Date]) ,ALL(Sales))
RETURN
IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Date[Date]) <Last Billable Date , BLANK(),
CALCULATE([Future Sales]))
 
the DAX statement above intends to aggregate future sales when the day is bigger than the last day we have a sale registered. Calculate function on future sales works like a charm.
This DAX statement indeed works well if the context is days , but shows nothing if the context changes from days to months. What am I doing wrong that everything looks fine and works with the context of days but nothing if the context are months?
I'd expect to have the aggregation of days in a month and show that as a results instead of blanks.
 
thanks for your time
Daniel

Re: Measure showing blanks when changing context from days to months

@DSiffredi,

 

SELECTEDVALUE returns the value when there’s only one value in the specified column, otherwise returns the alternate result. Here BLANK is returned. You may use MAX instead.
