## Bar Chart value Comparison using a single date slicer for multiple date selection

Hi,

After posting previous question about bar chart comparison which use two slicers previously, I thought of making my visual more neat... thus I thought of using a single slicer which allow user to select the multiple date they want to compare and the DAX will use the lastDate from those selected value as the Base Value to compare against the other date, and find out the differences in revenue in those date.

E.g if user selected 13 May & 10th Jun, then the variance value should be 225.18.

But my current DAX does not seem to work that way, what is missing in my DAX? Looking for all the expert advise.

Many thanks again & your patience too.

Hi @valWork

You are unable to calculate two different measures based on the same slicer due to the relationship between the calendar table and the main table. There are conflicting contexts here.

If you are interested in comparing based on a selection from one slicer, you can use a "disconnected" calendar table.

And then create measures like :

Sales 1 = CALCULATE([Total sales (K/\$)],FILTER('orders',[Order Date]=min('Calendar (2)'[Date])))
Sales 2 = CALCULATE([Total sales (K/\$)],FILTER('orders',[Order Date]=Max('Calendar (2)'[Date])))

The pbix is attached
