calculate dates between two measures

Hi I have 2 simple measure. One takes the selections on the slicers into account and creates a date. The other uses this newly created date to work out the 1st of the month a year ago. These both work and behave as expected.

SelectedDate = 
DATE(
	IF(ISFILTERED('Working Date'[CalendarYear]),SELECTEDVALUE('Working Date'[CalendarYear]),YEAR((max('Site Ticket Metrics'[TicketTimeStamp])))),
	IF(ISFILTERED('Working Date'[MonthName]),CALCULATE(MAX('Working Date'[MonthOfYear]),FILTER('Working Date','Working Date'[MonthName] = SELECTEDVALUE('Working Date'[MonthName]))),MONTH(max('Site Ticket Metrics'[TicketTimeStamp]))),
	MAX('Working Date'[DayOfMonth])) 
SelectedDateMinus12 = DATE(YEAR(EDATE([SelectedDate],-11)),MONTH(EDATE([SelectedDate],-11)),MIN('Working Date'[DayOfMonth]))

What I would like to do is create a list of dates between these two measures.

 

I have tried the following but it just returns a single blank in a table visual:

Dates between  SelectedDates = CALCULATETABLE(values('Working Date'[FullDate]),FILTER(ALL('Working Date'[FullDate]),MAX('Calendar Date'[FullDate])<= [SelectedDate] && MAX('Working Date'[FullDate])>=[SelectedDateMinus12]))

Does anyone have any Ideas as to how I can make this work?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @D1ltang,

 

Don't know if you tried the following if not give it a try this might do a trick for you:

 

Create new Calendar table and create an active  Many-to-One relationship on dates with your Working table. then use your new Date from Calendar table in your table visual.

 

DAX for Calendar table:

Calendar=
ADDCOLUMNS (
CALENDAR (DATE(2016,1,1), DATE(2017,12,31)),
"DateAsInteger", FORMAT ( [Date], "YYYYMMDD" ),
"Year", YEAR ( [Date] ),
"Monthnumber", FORMAT ( [Date], "MM" ),
"YearMonthnumber", FORMAT ( [Date], "YYYY/MM" ),
"YearMonthShort", FORMAT ( [Date], "YYYY/mmm" ),
"MonthNameShort", FORMAT ( [Date], "mmm" ),
"MonthNameLong", FORMAT ( [Date], "mmmm" ),
"DayOfWeekNumber", WEEKDAY ( [Date] ),
"DayOfWeek", FORMAT ( [Date], "dddd" ),
"DayOfWeekShort", FORMAT ( [Date], "ddd" ),
"Quarter", "Q" & FORMAT ( [Date], "Q" ),
"YearQuarter", FORMAT ( [Date], "YYYY" ) & "/Q" & FORMAT ( [Date], "Q" )
)

 

 

Hope this helps.

Re: calculate dates between two measures

Hi @Abduvali

 

Thank you for taking the time to respond.

 

Unfortunately the start and end dates that I am using are not static. They are generated as a result of the users input via slicer selection. This solution would be perfect if I could pass my two measures as the Start and End Date in your calendar calculation.

 

Have you got any other suggestions?

Thanks again,

Re: calculate dates between two measures

Hi @D1ltang,

 

You could try to create a calendar table, then, filter this calendar table with the two measures [SelectedDate] and [SelectedDateMinus12] to get the list of dates between specific date range.

 

For more advice, please provide sample data of source table so that we can test.
