## Running Total Blocks of 6-month Periods

Hello! I'm trying to create a calculated column that keeps a running total of blocks of 6-month periods. For example, given the data below, I would want the dates to be formatted as such:

03/15/2020 - 08/19/2020 – 1

12/15/2020 – 05/10/2021 – 2

11/29/2021 – 04/27/2022 – 3

Any ideas? Thank you!

 Event Date 8/12/2020 8/19/2020 12/15/2020 2/4/2021 4/17/2021 5/10/2021 11/29/2021 3/2/2022 3/6/2022 4/26/2022 4/27/2022

Thank you v-binbinyu-msft! I understand how you set this up, but this was an example of one customer. The dates will differ for each customer - any thoughts on how this could be dynamic?

Hi @SerenaFan93 ,

So far, to my knowledge, this may not be fully dynamic.

Hi @SerenaFan93 ,

Please try to create a new column with below dax formula:

``````Column =
VAR _date = [Event Date]
VAR tmp1 =
CALENDAR ( DATE ( 2020, 3, 15 ), DATE ( 2020, 8, 19 ) )
VAR tmp2 =
CALENDAR ( DATE ( 2020, 12, 15 ), DATE ( 2021, 5, 10 ) )
VAR tmp3 =
CALENDAR ( DATE ( 2021, 11, 29 ), DATE ( 2022, 4, 27 ) )
RETURN
SWITCH ( TRUE (), _date IN tmp1, 1, _date IN tmp2, 2, _date IN tmp3, 3 )
``````

Please refer the attached .pbix file.
