## measure help

hi there

i need your support about to create a measure

you can see below rule about that measure

i have date column , the measure must work beased on that column :

if the date column is current month it will write "Actual Month "

if the date column is before than current month  it will write  " Previous Month "

if the date column is after  than current month  it will write  " Next  Month "

sample :

Current Month : September

01.10.2019--Previous Month

01.05.2020--Previous Month

01.08.2020-Previous Month

10.10.2020-Next Month

10.01.2021-NExt Month

``````Measure =
VAR __Min = DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),1)
VAR __Max = EOMONTH(__Min,0)
RETURN
SWITCH(TRUE(),
MAX([Date])<__Min,"Previous Month",
MAX([Date])>__Max,"Next Month",
"Actual Month"
)``````

But you can't use a measure in a slicer unless you use the disconnected table trick. In general, to use a measure in that way, you need to use the Disconnected Table Trick as this article demonstrates: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Solving-Attendance-with-the-Disconnected-Table-Trick...

@erhan_79 , You can try like

Month Type = Switch( True(),
eomonth(Date[Date],0) = eomonth(Today(),0) ,"Current Month" , //This Month
eomonth(Date[Date],0) < eomonth(Today(),0) && ,"Previous Month" , //last Month
eomonth(Date[Date],0) > eomonth(Today(),0) && ,"Next Month" , //last Month
[Month Year]
)

OR

//Only one month

Month Type = Switch( True(),
eomonth(Date[Date],0) = eomonth(Today(),0) ,"Current Month" , //This Month
eomonth(Date[Date],0) = eomonth(Today(),-1) && ,"Previous Month" , //last Month
eomonth(Date[Date],0) =  eomonth(Today(),1) && ,"Next Month" , //last Month
[Month Year]
)

@erhan_79 See attached PBIX below sig, Table (18)

``````Column =
VAR __Min = DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),1)
VAR __Max = EOMONTH(__Min,0)
RETURN
SWITCH(TRUE(),
[Date]<__Min,"Previous Month",
[Date]>__Max,"Next Month",
"Actual Month"
)``````
