How to get a measure to ignore date filter in a visual and use other dates?

Hi

 

I am having a very specific issue. So, i have a date between type slicer on my visual. Based on the selections of that slicer, i created two measures for the first and last date known as Board10aFirstDateSelected and Board10aLastDateSelected.

 

Now,  i want to ignore the dates selected in the slicer but using the above 2 measures, i created another First and Last date as in below DAX code:

Board10bP&LAllTransactionAmountwithSignBudgetActualized = 
VAR First = if(today()>[Board10aFirstDateSelected],today(),[Board10aFirstDateSelected])
VAR Last = if(today()>[Board10aLastDateSelected],[Board10aLastDateSelected],today())
RETURN
CALCULATE(
    [AmountWithSign],
    FILTER(ALL(BudgetCalendar[Date]),DATESBETWEEN(BudgetCalendar[Date],First,Last))
)

I want to ignore the actual date filter on the visual and return the values using the new 2 dates named as First and Last in above code but it is returning blank as it seems it did not remove the filter as intended in above DAX code.

 

Thanks for any kind of help.

Hi @eliasayy 

Thanks. I figured it out. The actual issue was on the VAR First and VAR Last dax codes

Board10bP&LAllTransactionAmountwithSignBudgetActualized = 
VAR First = if(and(TODAY()>=[Board10aFirstDateSelected], TODAY()>= [Board10aLastDateSelected]),[Board10aLastDateSelected]+1,if(and(TODAY()<[Board10aFirstDateSelected], TODAY()< [Board10aLastDateSelected]),[Board10aFirstDateSelected],TODAY()+1))
VAR Last = CALCULATE(MAX( BudgetCalendar[Date] ),ALL( BudgetCalendar ))
RETURN
CALCULATE(
    [AmountWithSign],
    ALL(BudgetCalendar[Date]),DATESBETWEEN(BudgetCalendar[Date],First,Last)
)

 This is the correct DAX.

 

However, when using ALL, it is returning the total data in each date hierarchy level. Any idea how to summarize that by date hierarchy? I looked for Summarizecolumns but don't know how to use that!

Hello @Ackbar-Learner I think a simple removefilter([date]) in the calculate formula will do the trick
