## Calculate difference between previous date of same column using DAX

Hi All,

I have a requirement to calculate the difference between date of the current line to the previous line of the same column.

 Protocol Received Status Date A 6/30/2022 Assigned 11/7/2022 A 6/30/2022 In-Progress 1/18/2023 A 6/30/2022 Pre-Review 2/6/2323 A 6/30/2022 Agenda 2/6/2023 A 6/30/2022 Pre-Review 2/15/2023 B 7/10/2023 Assigned 7/15/2023 B 7/10/2023 In-Progress 7/15/2323 B 7/10/2023 Agenda 8/1/2023 B 7/10/2023 Pre-Review 8/10/2023 B 7/10/2023 Pre-Review 8/15/2023

Expected Output:

 Protocol Received Date Status Effective Date No. of days A 6/30/2022 Assigned 11/7/2022 130 A 6/30/2022 In-Progress 1/18/2023 72 A 6/30/2022 Pre-Review 2/6/2023 19 A 6/30/2022 Agenda 2/6/2023 0 A 6/30/2022 Pre-Review 2/15/2023 9 B 7/10/2023 Assigned 7/15/2023 5 B 7/10/2023 In-Progress 7/15/2023 0 B 7/10/2023 Modified 8/1/2023 17 B 7/10/2023 Pre-Review 8/10/2023 9 B 7/10/2023 Modified 8/15/2023 5

1. First value of a group will be the received date minus effective date

2. The other values will be difference from the previous date of the effective date column.

I followed the blog below but this is not working when the dates are same as well the status are getting aggregated instead of showing it separately.

Hi @POSPOS

You can add a index column in power query first and apply it

Then create a calculated column

``````Column = var a=FILTER('Table',[Protocol]=EARLIER('Table'[Protocol]))
var b=MINX(FILTER(a,[Date]=MINX(a,[Date])),[Index])

Output

Interval days.pbix

An index column is added to differentiate duplicated dates.

 Expertise = List.Accumulate(        {Days as from Today},        {Skills and Knowledge},        (Current, Everyday) => Current & Day.LeanAndPractise(Everyday))
