Parameter Personnalized Column

Hi everyone,

I created a personnalized column in order to creat 4 group of my column 'Date'.

 

Formula :


GROUP_DATA =

IF(DATEDIFF(FBL5N[Date d'échéance];TODAY();Month)>2;"<M-2";IF(DATEDIFF(FBL5N[Date d'échéance];TODAY();Month)=2;"M-2";IF(DATEDIFF(FBL5N[Date d'échéance];TODAY();Month)=1;"M-1";IF(DATEDIFF(FBL5N[Date d'échéance];TODAY();Month)=0;"M";">M"))))

 

So my data is classified according to the date of the day.
I would like to switch the day's date to a variable in order to change my visualization in my report.
I know i can do that through parameter in the 'data' part but i want to do that easily in my 'report' part.

I tried to creat a measure :


Day_Selected = SELECTEDVALUE('Table_Paramètre_Date_Jour'[Date];TODAy())

and to put my variable in the GROUP DATA's formula but it didn't work.

 

COuld You help me please  ?

Regards ,

Hi @Bastaba,

 

Yes, it has to be a column that provides the context while a measure can't. 

I have created a workaround. Please download it from the attachment. 

1. Create an independent table [Days].

2. Create a measure.

Measure =
VAR month_offset =
    DATEDIFF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( Days[Date] ), TODAY (), MONTH )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Table_Paramètre_Date_Jour'[Value] ),
        DATEADD ( FBL5N[Date d'échéance], - month_offset, MONTH )
    )

3. Please refer to the snapshot below.

Hi @Bastaba,

 

I'm afraid we can't do it like that. The GROUP_DATA is a calculated column that can't respond to the slicer. How would you like to change the visualization? Can you share sample data, please?

It seems the GROUP_DATA could be in the X-axis. The workaround could be making the value dynamic.

Hi,

Yes this is actually in the X-Axis.
I just want to change my filter and so the day-selected variable change the X-axis.

Here, some pictures to illustrate what i want :

I know how to make this works for a measure but not for a personnalized column.
But if i want to put it in my X-axis, it has to be a Column and not a measure, isn'it ?

Thx,

Hi !

I am answering only today because i wanted to understand perfectly your answer.
Thanks a lot ! I haven't mastered this database skill.

 

Just a question, how can i use this if i would like to do the same thing but on each day.
Because in a month, there 30 ou 31 days. So your formula doesn't work, does it ?

 

For example, if i change the GROUP_DATA formula by this formula :

GROUP_DATA =
IF(DATEDIFF('Date'[Date];TODAY();Month)>2;"<M-2";
IF(DATEDIFF('Date'[Date];TODAY();Month)=2;"M-2";
IF(DATEDIFF('Date'[Date];TODAY();Month)=1;"M-1";
IF(DATEDIFF('Date'[Date];TODAY();Day)>0;"- M";
IF(AND(DATEDIFF('Date'[Date];TODAY();Day)<=0;DATEDIFF('Date'[Date];TODAY();MONTH)=0);"+M";
">M"
)))))
 
i should change the others formulas by :
DATEADD('Date'[Date].[Date]; -day_offset ; DAY)
and
day_offset = DATEDIFF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table_Paramètre_Date_Jour'[Date];TODAY()); TODAY(); DAY)
 
 
Thx again for your answer !
 

Hi @Bastaba,

 

It's my pleasure. 

Since the [GROUP_DATA] can't be dynamic, we leave it alone and change the result. For example, if Today is M and 2019-01-01 is the new M, the interval is fixed. Today to 2019-01-01 and Yesterday to 2018-12-31. So we use this offset to change the result. 

You almost got the solution. I think this one should work.

 

Measure =
VAR month_offset =
    DATEDIFF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( Days[Date] ), TODAY (), day)
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Table_Paramètre_Date_Jour'[Value] ),
        DATEADD ( FBL5N[Date d'échéance], - month_offset, day )
    )

One tip, if we put Today and result together, there could be a confusion. Because the M is 2019-01-01 rather than Today.

Yes this is it.
But if TODAY = 11/01/19
There will be 10 days to the beginning of the month in GROUP_DATA

SO with this formula :

IF(DATEDIFF(FBL5N[Date d'échéance];TODAY();Day)>0;"- M";
IF(AND(DATEDIFF(FBL5N[Date d'échéance];TODAY();Day)<=0;DATEDIFF(FBL5N[Date d'échéance];TODAY();MONTH)=0);"+M";
There will be 10 days with "-M"
 
So if SELECTEDVALUE(Days[Date]) = 05/01/19
31/12/19
30/12/19
...
26/12/19
will be in  "-M" group and not in the "M-1" group
 
because as you said GROUP_DATA can't be dynamic.

What do i have to change please ? 

Hi @Bastaba,

 

Did you also change the rules in the [GROUP_DATA]? If not, "-M" should have a range of one month. So yes, 26/12/19 is in "-M".

What formula do i have to write for GROUP_DATA please ?

Regards,

Maybe this one?

 

GROUP_DATA =
IF (
    DATEDIFF ( 'Date'[Date]; TODAY (); DAY ) > 30;
    "<D-20";
    IF (
        DATEDIFF ( 'Date'[Date]; TODAY (); DAY ) >= 20;
        "D-20";
        IF (
            DATEDIFF ( 'Date'[Date]; TODAY (); DAY ) >= 10;
            "D-10";
            IF (
                DATEDIFF ( 'Date'[Date]; TODAY (); DAY ) > 0;
                "-D";
                IF ( DATEDIFF ( 'Date'[Date]; TODAY (); DAY ) = 0; "D"; ">D" )
            )
        )
    )
)
