How to give a value to different rows when condition applies on one only

Hi everyone!

 

I'm facing a problem that I believe should be easy to solve but I don't know which DAX formula to use, the data I have is the following:

hasier_0-1671453830196.png

What I need to do is to create a column called "inside" that will have a 1 if the today date (2/5/2023 in the example above) is between the Start and End dates for the Phase "open". The problem is that I need to apply that same value for different rows that have the same Name, so the second time "A" appears on the table should also have a 1 on the "Inside" column. Should it be done with Calculate or a Filter?

 

And then I also need to get the Name of the nearest End date for those projects that have a 1 on Inside, so if for example there would be more projects with a 1, I would need to know which one is more near to the today's date. 

 

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Hi @hasier ,

 

I created 4 measures to get your expected outputs. Please try:

Flag = 
var _today= DATE(2023,5,2)
return IF(_today>=MAX('Table'[START]) && _today<=MAX('Table'[END]) && MAX('Table'[Phase])="Open",1,0)
Inside = 
var _flag=SUMX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),[NAME]=MAX('Table'[NAME])),[Flag])
return IF(_flag>=1,1,0)
Diff = 
var _today= DATE(2023,5,2)
var _end=CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[END]),FILTER('Table',[Flag]=1))
return IF(_end=BLANK(),BLANK(), ABS( DATEDIFF(MAX('Table'[END]),_today,DAY)))
Name of Nearest End Date = 
CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[NAME]),FILTER('Table',[Diff]=MINX(ALL('Table'),[Diff])))

You will need one more extra column for this. I think you might be able to achieve this with FILTER() =MIN() , check out this post on Microsoft Learn https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/best-practices/dax-avoid-avoid-filter-as-filter-argument

That's what I'm not able to do, I have tried both functions and multiple columns but I don't get the result I need 😞

So you want to relate the 1 or 0 to the Name? How do you differnetiate the rows with the same Name?

 

Exactly, I want to choose the 1 or 0 based on the column Phase. When the value on that column is "Open" I check if the today's date is between the Start and End. If it is, I want to put a 1 not only on that row but on all the rows that have that same name, that's what I'm not able to do 😞

hi @hasier  I would create the if clause on a calculated column in the data model. In this way you will have a 1 or a 0 per row. (1)

Then I would create a measure or a calculated column (you will have to see what suits you best) with MAX date to get the latest date. 

I hope this helps. 

Hi @IIPowerBlog, thank you for your answer!

 

I have tried that but I'm only able to get a 1 on the row that has the date, and not on the other row that "A" appears. I need to have the value on both to be able to filter it later.
