New field based on date range

Hi everyone! 

 I have a question and need some assistance. I need to create a new field based on a date range. 

 Ex:

 

Column = IF (DATESBETWEEN  1/01/17, 01/31/17), VALUE1, IF (DATESBETWEEN 02/01/17, 02/28/17), VALUE2)) 

Any assistance would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Re: New field based on date range

@Babinsky,

If you're only interested in Jan 2017 and Feb 2017 and Mar 2017, then the approach from @Baskar should work, though you might need to adapt it a little with a MAX and  >= and <= in place of > and < respectively - e.g. 

 

 

DateValue = 
SWITCH ( TRUE() ,
AND ( MAX([Date]) >= DATE(2017,1,1), MAX([Date]) <= DATE(2017,1,31) ), "Value1",
AND ( MAX([Date]) >= DATE(2017,2,1), MAX([Date]) <= DATE(2017,2,28) ), "Value2",
AND ( MAX([Date]) >= DATE(2017,3,1), MAX([Date]) <= DATE(2017,3,31) ), "Value3",
BLANK()
)

If you're interested in years aside from 2017 or months past March, there may be a better solution depending on what you're trying to do.

@Babinsky

 

Since you need to do comparison on row level, you should create a calculated column instead of measure with formula as @Baskar posted.

 

It can be like:

 

Column  = SWITCH(
TRUE(),
'Table'[Date]>=DATE(2017,1,1) && 'Table'[Date]<=DATE(2017,1,31),"Value1",
'Table'[Date]>=DATE(2017,2,1) && 'Table'[Date]<DATE(2017,2,28),"Value2",
....
)

See my sample below:

Re: New field based on date range

Anyone who can help, for the following code below what is the syntax for the date field?

 

Measure =

Switch ( True() ,

              AND( Date >  1/01/17, Date < 01/31/17 ) , Value1,

              AND( Date >  2/01/17, Date < 02/28/17 ) , Value2,

              AND( Date >  3/01/17, Date < 03/31/17 ) , Value3)

 

For Example:

File - PM022BIWK

Field  - PDATCR

Re: New field based on date range

What I need to know if how do you specify in the code where you're pulling the date field from and what is the syntax?  Which date field below needs replaced?

 

For Example:

File - PM022BIWK

Field  - PDATCR

 

Measure =
Switch ( True() ,
              AND( Date > Date(2017,1,1), Date < Date(2017,1,31)),Value1,
              AND( Date > Date(2017,2,1), Date < Date(2017,02,28)) ,Value2,
              AND( Date > Date(2017,3,1), Date < Date(2017,03,31)) , Value3
)

@Babinsky

 

You can use a Variable

 

Measure =

VAR Date= Values('PM022BIWK'[PDATCR])

RETURN
Switch ( True() ,
              AND( Date > Date(2017,1,1), Date < Date(2017,1,31)),Value1,
              AND( Date > Date(2017,2,1), Date < Date(2017,02,28)) ,Value2,
              AND( Date > Date(2017,3,1), Date < Date(2017,03,31)) , Value3
)

 

 

Or you can replace in:

 

Measure =

Switch ( True() ,
              AND(  Values('PM022BIWK'[PDATCR])> Date(2017,1,1), Values('PM022BIWK'[PDATCR]) < Date(2017,1,31)),Value1,
              AND( Values('PM022BIWK'[PDATCR]) > Date(2017,2,1), Values('PM022BIWK'[PDATCR]) < Date(2017,02,28)) ,Value2,
              AND( Values('PM022BIWK'[PDATCR]) > Date(2017,3,1), Values('PM022BIWK'[PDATCR]) < Date(2017,03,31)) , Value3
)
