@ctedesco3307  you need a calndar table for this and the above fact[Date] needs to have a relationship with Calendar[Date], then you can write following measure to give you what you need

 

Measure = "from"&" "&MAX('Calendar'[First_Day_in_Week])&" "&"to"&" "&MAX('Calendar'[Last_Day_in_Week])

Minimum dependency a calendar table with following structure

 

Calendar_Date First_Day_in_Week Last_Day_in_Week

This worked fantastic, accept for one issue that just occured to me. I need to use these values as columns in a matrix report and can't do that as measures? Is there a way to do this as a calculated column? I should have specified that initially - my fault there. Apologies.

Thanks for the quick reply - my exmple was actually my date table. How do I get the first and last week columns in there? 

TDate = ADDCOLUMNS(
CALENDAR(date(2021,1,1), date(2021,12,31)),
"Month", FORMAT([Date],"mmm YY"),
"MonthOrder", (YEAR([Date])*100) + MONTH([Date]),
"Year", YEAR([Date]),
"Week", WEEKNUM([Date]),
"Day", FORMAT([Date],"ddd") ,
"Billing Month",
var DayNumber = WEEKDAY( [Date], 2 )
return
[Date]
+ ( 5 - DayNumber)
+ 7 * (DayNumber > 5
))
