Offset column with a date

Hello everybody,

here is my problem :
I'm trying to offset a column so that i can have the time between operations (in powerbi dax)
the thing is that i can do it with numbers but i dont know why i can't do it with text.
Can someone help me do it please ?
Here is a exemple of a table that i have ( the data is not real) with an added offset colum that i want to code via DAX

Hi @stsdrillingeng3 possible solution is calculated column as below. Adjust Sheet1 to your table name.

This solution assumes that column ID is unique value to identify row for end date.

 

Offset formula =
VAR __current_id=Sheet1[id]
RETURN  
CALCULATE(
    MAX(Sheet1[end_date]),
    FILTER(Sheet1,
    Sheet1[id]=__current_id-1)
)
 
Output

Yeas it works perfectly thanks a lot ! I tried using the offset formula but yours is so much more easier and comprehensible.
