Hi @greeshma ,

 

Indeed, it will be a little troublesome to use dax.

 

1.Create a calendar table and a category table.

Table = CALENDAR(DATE(2020,1,1),DATE(2021,12,31))

2.Create a relationship between calendar table and main table.

3.Create the measure

FilteredValue =
SWITCH (
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table (2)'[Category] ),
    "Today", CALCULATE ( SUM ( MainTable[Value] ), FILTER ( 'Table', [Date] = TODAY () ) ),
    "Yesterday",
        CALCULATE (
            SUM ( MainTable[Value] ),
            FILTER ( 'Table', [Date] = TODAY () - 1 )
        ),
    "Month to Date",
        CALCULATE (
            SUM ( MainTable[Value] ),
            DATESINPERIOD ( 'Table'[Date], TODAY (), -1, MONTH )
        ),
    "Rolling 7 days",
        CALCULATE (
            SUM ( MainTable[Value] ),
            FILTER ( 'Table', [Date] <= TODAY () && [Date] >= TODAY () - 6 )
        )
)

It is better to create in Excel or SQL.

@greeshma 

Probably simpler to create the table in Excel and import it, no?
