compare a date field to a defined date

Hi,

 

I'm trying to count the number of rows where a certain date/time field has been met according to a statically defined date in DAX as the visual filter will not work with the particular viz I require.  Both the date and the time of that particular day need to be met, and it doesn't appear to be evaluating the date/time properly, as when the date/time portion of the filter are removed, all else returns fine.  passwordChange has Data Type set to Date/Time.  For example, I have tried the following without success:

 

PWDGT06152018_Enabled = CALCULATE (
    DISTINCTCOUNT(Table[acctname]), FILTER ('Table', 'Table'[AcctType]="Value" && 'Table'[EnabledDisabled]="Enabled" && 'Table'[passwordChange].[Date] >= 6/15/2018 2:30 PM))

 

 

PWDGT06152018_Enabled = CALCULATE (
    DISTINCTCOUNT(Table[acctname]), FILTER ('Table', 'Table'[AcctType]="Value" && 'Table'[EnabledDisabled]="Enabled" && 'Table'[passwordChange].[Date] >= 20180615143000 ))

 

Thanks!

Thanks, still double-checking the results and math, but its definitely evaluating both the date and the time now!  🙂

Hello,

 

Usually, it is good to use DATE() and TIME() functions for comparison.

 

Can you try:

PWDGT06152018_Enabled =
CALCULATE (
    DISTINCTCOUNT ( Table[acctname] ),
    FILTER (
        'Table',
        'Table'[AcctType] = "Value"
            && 'Table'[EnabledDisabled] = "Enabled"
            && 'Table'[passwordChange].[Date]
                >= DATE ( 2018, 06, 15 ) + TIME ( 14, 30, 0 )
    )
)
