## Returning the following wednesday from a date value if certain criteria are met

Hi there,

New to Power BI.

I have a data set relating to payments and am trying to solve the following problem. The payment date in the dataset relates to the date the payment was submitted by the accounting system, and not the date it cleared from the bank (usually five days later). I therefore need to create a calcualted column that when certain criteria are met, ie when payment method=a certain value and payment priority=a certain value, it takes the payment date and returns the date of the following wednesday.

Any pointers or help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,

D

## Re: Returning the following wednesday from a date value if certain criteria are met

this depends on what you mean by the following Wednesday.

below are tow examples the first will always return the next avilable wednesday so for example if the date was tuesday the 7th of may 2019 then the next wednesday would be wedneday the 3rd of MAY

Column =
Var m = Table1[Method] = "BANK"
var p = Table1[Priority] = 1
var d = Table1[Payment Date]
Var wd = WEEKDAY(d,2)
var nextwed = d + (3-wd) + IF(wd>3,7,0)

var ret = if(and(m,p),nextwed,blank())

return nextwed

the second example will always give the wednesday of the following week so in the example above instead of giving the 8th it will give the 15th

Column =
Var m = Table1[Method] = "BANK"
var p = Table1[Priority] = 1
var d = Table1[Payment Date]
var nextwed = d + (3-WEEKDAY(d,2)) + 7

var ret = if(and(m,p),nextwed,blank())

return ret

for both just change the method and priority checks to your criteria

Try to use the language function in M in the query editor.

Create a calculated column ( if [type_cost] = "X" and [Sum] >10500 then [date]+5 else [date] )
