## Need a Date Table that filters current YTD and Prior YTD

Hello,

We have OLAP cubes and I would like to create a date table that dynamically filters current and prior YTD dates only.   I do not need to calculate or sum anything.  Once I get my relevant dates filtering, I can create a hierarchy in power bi that will display my summed data for a profit and loss statement.

I'm thinking to create my table I need to incorporate a dateadd filter.   The only dates I need in the date table would be date, month, month number, quarter and year.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Thank you.

hi,@CJH

After my research, you can do these follow my steps as below:

Step1:

Create a CALENDAR date first.

Then use this formula to create the date table that contains the current year and last year

`Date = CALCULATETABLE('CALENDAR',YEAR('CALENDAR'[Date])<=YEAR(TODAY())&&YEAR('CALENDAR'[Date])>=YEAR(TODAY())-1)`

Step 2
use these formulas to add column month, month number, quarter and year.

```Year = YEAR('Date'[Date])

Quarter = INT ( FORMAT ( [Date], "q") )

Month number = MONTH ( 'Date'[Date] )

Month = FORMAT ( 'Date'[Date], "mmmm" ) ```

Result:

by the way, when adding calculate table it cant be affected by slicers.

And this link may give you some ideas.
