Calculation based on two dates

Hi guys,

 

I have to calculate the sales on the scenario below:

 

I have a dim_date filter that has no relationship with the sales table and I need to use that as slicer.

 

Each sale has its own period start based on the [Start] column and let's say I select 28/03/2023 I want to see everything from 01/01/2023 until 28/03/2023 (because the period start is 01/01/2023 for that row and 28/03/2023 is the date I selected from the sliecer)

Now If I select 04/04/2023 in the slicer and the period start for that row is 01/04/2023 so I want to see everything from 01/04/2023 to 04/04/2023

 

What determines that start period is the [Start] column

 

How can I achieve that?

Hi , @DataFab2023 

Thanks for your quick response!I may have a mistake in my dax code , you can try to use this dax:

Measure = var _slicer =MAX('Dim_Date2'[Date Filter])
var _start = MINX( FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Sheet1'),'Sheet1'[Date]=_slicer) , [Start])
var _date = MAX('Sheet1'[Date])
return
IF(_date>=_start && _date<= _slicer,1,0)

 

Thank you for your time and sharing, and thank you for your support and understanding of PowerBI!

Dear , 

Make the relationship from DIM_DATE to the Sheet1 Dates : 1 to many 

Then in the sclicer make it as hierarchy and select only year and quarter :

Hi , @DataFab2023 

Thanks for you sample .pbix file firsr~

Here are the steps you can refer to :
We can click "New Measure" to create a measure like this:

Measure = var _slicer =MAX('Dim_Date2'[Date Filter])
var _start = MINX( FILTER('Sheet1','Sheet1'[Date]=_slicer) , [Start])
var _date = MAX('Sheet1'[Date])
return
IF(_date>=_start && _date<= _slicer,1,0)

 

Then we can put this measure on the "Filter on this visual"  for this visual:

Hi there,

 

thanks for taking the time for this one.


The measure almost worked, the problem is that when I select 15/04/2023 for example the start period (from the start column) is 01/04/2023 there it should show data only from 01/04/2023 and not 15/01/2023
