## Calculated Measure won't Filter in Table

First time post bear with me...

I have created a MTD function to view sales data for my company:

MTD = CALCULATE([Total Sales], FILTER(ALL('Date'[Date]),
'Date'[Date] >= (EOMONTH(NOW(), -1) + 1) &&
'Date'[Date] <= NOW()
))

This function is working fine, BUT when I load it into a table in order to report on this data I'm running into an issue. I need to break down all the sales in the given month by date for the whole month. Using a table and making the column my 'Date'[Date] function I thought this would break this MTD function down by date. Instead I get the following:

The 'MTD' measure is the one I just created and it's not getting filtered. The 'Total Sales' measure is the one referenced in the MTD measure and it's filtering fine.

I am stuck and can't figure out what I'm missing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It's because of the ALL() in your filter. You're telling it to always ignore any other date filters. That includes any filter that breaks it down to a single day.

```MTD = CALCULATE(
[Total Sales],
FILTER(
'Date',
'Date'[Date] >= (EOMONTH(TODAY(), -1) + 1) &&
'Date'[Date] <= TODAY()
)
)```

Also you should use TODAY() instead of NOW() when comparing to a date-only value, which your 'Date'[Date] should be. NOW() returns a datetime, which will never be equal to any date value, so <= only evaluates on <.
