remove date from context then do cumulative

Hi,
 
I want to write a measure that removes the current Date context, but retains the rest of the context in order to get current capacity.
My original data is 1 row per item, with dates for when the capacity entered the system and dates for when it left.
I need to be able to filter by other items with this measure, such a technology type, region etc. So it's important that it removes the Date context only. I have a working example with a hard coded context.
 
(The logic is the same as using a trade book to create a balance sheet)
 

Working "hard coded context" method - to continue using this I would need a different measure for every aggregation / visual I want to do

 

Cummulative_by_tech = 
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Capacities'[Capacity [kW]]]),
    FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Capacities','Capacities'[Technology_type]),
        AND(
            'Capacities'[In-Date] <= MAX('Dates'[Date]),
            'Capacities'[Out-Date] >= MAX('Dates'[Date])
        )
    )
)

 

 

Attempted "dynamic date removal" method

Current capacity = 
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Capacities'[Capacity [kW]]]),
    FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Dates'),
            'Capacities'[In-date] <= MAX('Dates'[Date])
            && 'Capacities'[Exit-date] >= MAX('Dates'[Date])
    )
)
 
Any help very appreciated!

Re: remove date from context then do cumulative

Hi @andyhere

create a date table which is not connected with your data table.

Create measures in your data table

max = MAX('calendar'[Date])

min = MIN('calendar'[Date])

meet dateperiond = IF(MAX(Sheet1[in_date])<=[min]&&MAX(Sheet1[out_date])>=[max],1,0)

If you mean "cumulative" by date( eg, cumulative sales from 2018/1/1 to 2018/10/1)

write this measure:

cml_asc_date =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( Sheet1[kw] ),
    FILTER (
        ALLSELECTED ( Sheet1 ),
        [meet dateperiond] = 1
            && [in_date] <= MAX ( [in_date] )
    )
)

If you mean "cumulative" grouped by different category

create a measure:

cml_by_item = CALCULATE(SUM(Sheet1[kw]),FILTER(Sheet1,[meet dateperiond]=1))

Re: remove date from context then do cumulative

Hi Maggie,

 

Thanks for your detailed response!

 

Why does the date/calendar table need to have no relationship to the data table? I would like to retain a relationship there for other graphs.

 

I tried making the first measure you suggested, but using ALLSELECTED I am unable to access the dates columns inside the filter, i guess because there is a relationship set up?

 

thanks,

 

Andy

Re: remove date from context then do cumulative

Hi @andyhere

Please keep the calendar date table( i referred in my previous post) unconnected to your data table so that your problem here can be sloved.

 

To use date from a date table for other visuals, you could create another calendar date table and create relationships among this new calendar date table with your data tables.

 

Best Regards

Maggie
