## Calculate half a year intervals between two different dates

Hi

I am using DATEIFF function to create calculated column to calculate time interval between two days. May I ask if you can help me how can I calculate half a year intervals? The function only allows me for Quarters.

I would appreciate any other suggestions on how to calculate the column.

Function I am using:

YearsBetween column =
DATEDIFF(
('Blade List + Findings'[Comm End Date]),
('Blade List + Findings'[SG145 Finding register.Inspection Date]),YEAR

)

Thank you.

Hi @AndreaSo ,

For this you just need to take the value and multiply or divide by the corresponding values so if you use the year has parameter in datediff multipli by 2, if it's quarters divide by 2, if its months divide by 6. you measure should be similar to this:

YearsBetween column =
DATEDIFF(
('Blade List + Findings'[Comm End Date]),
('Blade List + Findings'[SG145 Finding register.Inspection Date]),YEAR
) * 2

Be aware that you may need to adjust the rounding.

Hi @AndreaSo ,

You can use MONTH as an interval. For example:-
EVALUATE VAR StartDate = DATE ( 20190701 ) VAR EndDate = DATE ( 20211231 ) RETURN { ( "Year"DATEDIFF ( StartDate, EndDate, YEAR ) ), ( "Quarter"DATEDIFF ( StartDate, EndDate, QUARTER ) ), ( "Month"DATEDIFF ( StartDate, EndDate, MONTH ) ), ( "Week"DATEDIFF ( StartDate, EndDate, WEEK ) ), ( "Day"DATEDIFF ( StartDate, EndDate, DAY ) ) }
Datediff give you these interval options :-
- SECOND
- MINUTE
- HOUR
- DAY
- WEEK
- MONTH
- QUARTER
- YEAR
