## Count Difference between dates broken out by month

Is there a way to calculate the difference between two dates but break them out by months?

My table example is:

 ID Date Start Date End Duration 123 12/11/2018 16/11/2018 5 123 02/01/2019 07/01/2019 6 1003 03/06/2019 07/08/2019 66

This count works fine for short dates within the same month but I'm hoping to get a month count between the start and end dates?

So I'm hoping to have some sort of breakout/ split to show:

 ID June July August 1003 28 31 7

Thanks.

@Anonymous  firstly, you need create a date table, which have no relationship with your fact table. then try this code

``````DaysCount :=
SUMX (
Table1,
VAR sd = Table1[Date Start]
VAR ed = Table1[Date End]
RETURN
CALCULATE (
COUNT ( 'Calendar'[Date] ),
KEEPFILTERS ( DATESBETWEEN ( 'Calendar'[Date], sd, ed ) )
)
)``````
