## Dynamic MAX date

Hi everyone,

I need to limit the data that is being shown in a graph by following this criteria:

• If today is before the 15th of the current month, show up to the last day of two months ago
• If today is equal or after the 15th, show up to the last day of the previous month.

i.e: if we are one April 7th, show up to February 28th; after April 15th show up to March 31st and so on....

I think there are many ways to accomplish this, the aproach that I am trying to follow consists of a binary measure that determines the MAX date to show data depending on the current date. A few variables let me obtain dynamically the paramenters, however I am not sure how to proceed with the logic to determine the MAX date for each case.

VAR today_var = DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),DAY(TODAY()))
VAR delay = DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),15)
VAR maxDateBefore = EOMONTH(TODAY(), -2)
VAR maxDateAfter = EOMONTH(TODAY(), -1)

Perhaps that is not the best approach.

Any help is much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Regards

You use

``````VAR EndOfLastMonth =
EOMONTH ( TODAY (), -1 )
VAREndOfTwoMonthsAgo =
EOMONTH ( TODAY (), -2 )
IF ( DAY ( TODAY () ) >= 15, EndOfLastMonth, EndOfTwoMonthsAgo )``````
