Cannot put measure in X-asis or Y-asis in any column chart

Hello i have problems using measures in any bar charts.

 

I created the folowing measure to calculate the age.

Age =

VAR _peildatum=SELECTEDVALUE('Peildata'[datum])
RETURN
DATEDIFF(SELECTEDVALUE(Bezetting[Geboortedatum]),_peildatum,DAY)/365.25
 
I use this measure to create a second measure to define age categories:
Age_Categorie =
VAR lft = Bezetting[Age]
RETURN
SWITCH (TRUE(),
 lft<25,"<25",
 lft<35,"25-<35",
 lft<45,"35-<45",
 lft<55,"45-<55",
 lft<60,"55-<60",
 "60 of meer"
)
 
Now I want to create the folowing barchart to count the people in the diffrent age categories:
eyeekit_0-1700677367956.png

But I cannot put the measures in the X-asis or Y-asis in the barchart .

 

How can I achieve this? Please help.

Hi all,

 

I did not solve the problem anymore with DAX because of its complexity.

I included the date selection as column in the dataset in SQL and this makes life so much easier....

I use the following SQL code:

 

--Datelist: 1st day of the month starting 2020 untill now
WITH Peildata AS
(
SELECT datum
FROM [biDWH_Presentation].[dm].[dim_Datum]
WHERE jaar >= 2020 AND dag_in_maand=1 AND datum <=GETDATE()
)

--For each record in datelist select data between startdate and enddate
SELECT objectid
,Datum_in_dienst
,Datum_uit_dienst
,Datum
FROM [biDWH_Presentation].[dm_hr].[dim_hrm_dienstverband]
FULL OUTER JOIN Peildata ON datum between Datum_in_dienst AND datum_uit_dienst

 

Thank all for your comments/support/advise. Much appreciated!

@Ritaf1983 100% agree with you, I made that based on this assumption:

 

VAR _peildatum=SELECTEDVALUE('Peildata'[datum])

I think , we should wait for the author's responce 🤓😊

Hi people, greetings from Holland. Thank you all for taking time to look into my case.

It's all dynamic. I choose a date from a datelist slicer and with this I create teh first measaure

to calculate the age. And from this I define the age categories.

 

I want to upload the pbix but i do'n't see any button to do so. How can i upload ?

@Ritaf1983 good point but it will not work dynamically, especially in this it looks like it is based on the selected date. With the calculated column you have to work with a fixed date. Just my 2 cents.

For this scenario, we have a dynamic segmentation....the author didn't provide some data that explains his case entirely...so we can't know...

Hi @eyeekit 
You should use a calculated column instead of the measure for bins.

please refer to the linked tutorial:
