2 measures in one by date

Hi! 

I have 2 measures - one for data before Dec 17 2021 and one for after. We made a change this date so is there away to combine it to one measure so the chart so it's one line before & after the change?

 

So if I make 2 measures, one called "Pre Dec 17" and one called "Post Dec 17" - how can I show them in one measure called "Combined View" dependent on those dates. 

 

I would think it would be something like

Combined View =

If date is before Dec 17, then use "Pre Dec 17" and if post Dec 17 then use "Post Dec 17"

 

I hope this makes sense!

Hi @jnrezk ,

 

How many data table do you have?

Here are two scenarios:

1. You have two data tables, one for measure before 2021/12/17, another one for measure after 2021/12/17.

2. You have only one data table, it contains all values and you create two measures based on it.

Here I suggest you to create a calendar table with continuous dates by dax. Then relate it with your data table by Date columns. Then create a measure and build a visual by Date column from calendar table.

I think the odds are that you are in situation 1.

Measure = 
IF(MAX('Date'[Date])< DATE(2021,12,17),[Before 2021/12/17],[After 2021/12/17])

Result is as below.

@jnrezk , simply add them and try 

 

measure 3 =[measure1] +[Measure2]

@amitchandak no, i need the logic for the date before and after x date so that the Pre measure doesn't have any data after Dec 17 and the post doesnt pull any data before Dec 17

@jnrezk , comments show option. But if you want to select a date from slicer and what work across all date. Better to use independent date table and measure like

 

Measure 1=
var _max = maxx(allselected('Date'), 'Date'[Date]) // Or // date(2021,12,17) //Or Today()
return
calculate(sum(Table[value]), filter('Table', 'Table'[Date] > _max))


Measure 2=
var _max = maxx(allselected('Date'), 'Date'[Date]) // Or // date(2021,12,17) //Or Today()
return
calculate(sum(Table[value]), filter('Table', 'Table'[Date] > _max))

 

or with joined date tbale

 

 

Measure 1=
var _max = maxx(allselected('Date'), 'Date'[Date]) // Or // date(2021,12,17) //Or Today()
return
calculate(sum(Table[value]), filter(all('Date'), 'Date'[Date] > _max))


Measure 2=
var _max = maxx(allselected('Date'), 'Date'[Date]) // Or // date(2021,12,17) //Or Today()
return
calculate(sum(Table[value]), filter(all('Date'), 'Date'[Date] > _max))

 

 

The second option can not give trend 

I have to be honest you always answer my posts but I never understand haha
