Hi,

Does this work?

=CALCULATE(SUM(sheet1[FTE]),FILTER(sheet1,sheet1[Date]<EARLIER('Temp Badge Requests'[Request Completion Date])))

Hope this helps.

Re: Power Pivot Calculate Formula

This error is due to your filter condition, currently you have:

 

'Temp Badge Requests' < 'Temp Badge Requests'[Request Completion Date]

 

The item on the left of the < is a table reference (hence the error about multiple columns, this needs to be a column reference probably to some sort of Hire Date.
