When I'm trying to create graph, I am passing Created Date and Closed Date in Axis and in Values i'm passing created date count, closed date count, but on graph not showing the correct count because i'm passing 2 different date's in Axis.


I have tried using Calendar table also but while creating relationship it giving me an error: Circular dependancy was detected.


Is there any other way to do it, without using UseRelationship Function.

@amitchandak is it possible to do this without creating Active or inactive relationships?

@VD , Try with an independent Table


Created =
var _min = minx(allselected(Date), Date[Date])
var _max = maxx(allselected(Date), Date[Date] )
calculate(sum(Table[Value]), filter(Table, Table[Created Date] <=_max && Table[Created Date] >=_min))


Closed =
var _min = minx(allselected(Date), Date[Date])
var _max = maxx(allselected(Date), Date[Date] )
calculate(sum(Table[Value]), filter(Table, Table[Closed Date] <=_max && Table[Created Date] >=_min))

@amitchandak I tried, but not working, still not showing the correct count.
