Multiple DATESBETWEEN filtering

I got two tables with following data. However, ExcludeRange StartDate and EndDate are measures instead of calculated columns for reason it is derived from whatif paramter then can't be calculated column.

 

ExcludeRange

IndexPersonStartDateEndDate
1John1-Dec2-Dec
2Tom2-Dec2-Dec
3John4-Dec5-Dec
4Tom5-Dec5-Dec

 

Sales

DatePersonValue
1-DecJohn3
2-DecJohn4
3-DecJohn5
4-DecJohn2
5-DecJohn7
1-DecTom3
2-DecTom4
3-DecTom5
4-DecTom2
5-DecTom7

 

My goal is to have a measure: For each person, derive the corresponding values by Sales but exclude ExcludeRange. Result should be as following:

DateJohnTom
1-Dec 3
2-Dec  
3-Dec55
4-Dec 2
5-Dec  

 

I tried the following but not successful since datesbetween can't be used for multiple ranges. Any can help?

sumx('Person', calculate(sumx(sales, sales[value]), filter(sales, EXCEPT(sales[Date], DATESBETWEEN(sales[Date], 'ExcludeRange'[StartDate], 'ExcludeRange'[EndDate])))))

Re: Multiple DATESBETWEEN filtering

@amitchandakThanks your reply. Anyway, i can't make a reference to filter ExcludeRange by 'Sales'[person] and 'Sales'[date] as there is no relationship between the two tables. There are 'Person' & 'CalendarDates' tables which have relationship with these two tables. Finally i used Generate to build up a casterian between Sales and ExcludeRange and then do the filtering and the result seems work. As I am not quite familiar with DAX, it may not be simplied and optimized yet. Hope anyone has similar issue will find this help.

Exclude Sales = sumx('Person',         
calculate(sum(Sales[Value]), filter(generate(Sales, ExcludeRange),
            Sales[Date]>= ExcludeRange[StartDate] && Forecast[Date]<= calculate(ExcludeRange[EndDate], Allexcept(Sales, Sales[Person])) && Sales[Person] = ExcludeRange[Person]), Sales[Person] = earlier('Person'[Person])
       )
   )

Re: Multiple DATESBETWEEN filtering

@sunlung in my opinion your sales tables should have person details in it, by looking at date and value, you cannot determine for which person that sales is? Am I missing something?

@parry2k. Thanks your reply. Yes, you are right there is person column in sales table but there is limitation of the post size so i skipped it. I have amended the example and include the person column. Kindly see.

Re: Multiple DATESBETWEEN filtering

One of the ways is to populate the index in your sales table and use it as a filter. When the index is blank

 

Max Index= Maxx(filter(ExcludeRange,'Sales'[person]='ExcludeRange'[person] && 'Sales'[date]>='ExcludeRange'[Start date] && 'Sales'[date]<='ExcludeRange'[end date]),ExcludeRange[index])
