## Calculated column of distinct months given max week of month

Hi,

Having a table similar to:

Year    Month    WeekOfMonth
2018  1             1
2018  1             2
2018  1             3
2018  2             1
2018  2             2
2018  3             1
2018  3             2
2018  4             1
2018  4             2
2018  4             3
2017  1             1
2017  1             2
2017  2             1
2017  2             2
2017  2             3
2017  3             1
2017  3             2
2017  3             3
2017  4             1
2017  4             2

I want to use a calculated column as a page-level filter to have the following table:

Year    Month    WeekOfMonth
2018  1             1
2018  1             2
2018  1             3
2018  4             1
2018  4             2
2018  4             3

That is:

• Filter the table by the year 2018
• Of each month, look at the max WeekOfMonth
• Select only the months with WeekOfMonth = 3

This is the formula I have for now:

Months5Weeks (2018) =
VAR M5W =
CALCULATE(
DISTINCT(Table[Month]);
Table[Year] = 2018;
Table[WeekOfMonth] = 5
)
return

IF(Table[Month] IN {M5W}; Table[Month]; BLANK())

But using that, I only have the following result:

Year    Month    WeekOfMonth
2018  1             3
2018  4             3

Which obviously isn't what I'm looking for...

Thanks in advance for the help

Try this:

1. Place the three fields you show in your first table in the rows of a table visual

2. Create a measure like:

ShowMeasure =
VAR _Max =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( Table1[WeekOfMonth] ), ALL ( Table1[WeekOfMonth] ) )
RETURN
IF ( _Max = 3, 1 )

3. Place [ShowMeasure] in the visual level filters and select to show if it is not blank

If you need a column try this:

ShowColumn =
VAR _Max =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( Table1[WeekOfMonth] ), ALL ( Table1[WeekOfMonth] ) )
RETURN
IF ( _Max = 3 && Table1[Year]= 2018, 1 )

It's pretty much the same since we were using the table visual with all columns already. I've added the 2018 restriction

I asked for a calculated column because I had to apply it to 45 (sigh) visuals, but if there is no way around it I'll just grit my teeth and do it.

That aside, the measure works, but it's clearly not filtered by a specific year, though I'll mark your post as a solution anyway.

It should work. Place all three fields, Year, Month and WeekOfMonth, in a table visual and then use the created calculated column in the filters to show when it is not blank.

Otherwise upload the pbix and I'll have a look . We'll make it work

Strange, it does work today, and can't find what didn't make it work yesterday, most probably a filter I didn't notice.

Anyway, thanks for being so forthcoming!

The ShowColumn formula didn't work, keeps giving the same result I had before:

Year    Month    WeekOfMonth
2018  1             3
2018  4             3

I'll just use the measure.

You could also choose to set the restriction on Year = 2018 through a slicer instead of having it hard-coded in the column

@AlB

I would've used a slicer if the higher entities hadn't said that it's 'ugly.'

Though now that I think about it maybe I can just make it invisible.
