Line Chart shows a spike at the end

_Regina_0-1657637877717.png

Hi Everyone,

I have this line chart. This is the view when I selected June,30,2022 on my date slicer. It shows me results for July 31 2022 and adds up all the data points thus giving me a spike. Unsure as to what mught be causing this. if I have the latest date selected, For example July 12, it gives me correct chart. but if I have a previous date selected it shows me data beyond that date, which is not expected.

The measures used are structured as below

Clients with Gross Sales =

var _start_date = CALCULATE(MIN('_date unpivot'[Date Key]))
var _end_date = CALCULATE(MAX('_date unpivot'[Date Key]))

var r = CALCULATE(
DISTINCTCOUNT('client'[Client ID]),
DATESBETWEEN('transaction'[Processing Date], _start_date, _end_date),
'transaction'[Transaction Category] = "Gross Sales"
 
)

return r
 
 
I would really appreciate any direction here. Thank you

@_Regina , Try if this can work

var _start_date = CALCULATE(MIN('_date unpivot'[Date Key]))
var _end_date = CALCULATE(MAX('_date unpivot'[Date Key]))

var r = CALCULATE(
DISTINCTCOUNT('client'[Client ID]),
filter('transaction', 'transaction'[Processing Date]>= _start_date && 'transaction'[Processing Date] <= _end_date),
'transaction'[Transaction Category] = "Gross Sales"

)

Thank you once again, but why would your solution work and not mine ?
