## Measure to calculate the number of days between two dates in a date slider

I have a date slicer, say values of 1/1/17 to 1/21/17.  I would like a simple measure of the number of days between those two dates (i.e. 20).  I want to used that measure to create a number of visuals based on the number of days selected in the slider.  If it's 1/1/16 to 1/2/17, I want the measure to return 366 days.  Hope this makes sense.  Seems like it should be an easy one.  Appreciate your help!!

Please try the following calculated measure. Just substitute the table/date column you are using in your slicer.

```Days Between = DATEDIFF(
MIN('Table'[Date]),
MAX('Table'[Date]),
DAY
)```

One way is to keep a column in your Date Table that carries just 1's and 0's.  Set weekend values (and holidays if you can) to 0. That way you can just SUM the column between the dates you care about and that should hopefully give you the number you need.
