Cant get Today to work with Datesinperiod

Hi

I can't get Today () to work when I use a DatesinPeriod measure.

It just returns a blank value.

What am i doing wrong?

Here is the measure I created.

Costs last 2 months = calculate ( sum(MK_Job_LedgerEntries[Total_Cost_LCY]), DATESINPERIOD(MK_Job_LedgerEntries[Posting_Date], today(), -2, MONTH ))

I got it to work - i was missing the .[date] after chosing the datesinperiod date

@Sean-OReilly , Hope you have data for last 2 month, Also prefer to use a date table joined with date of your table

 

Rolling 2 = CALCULATE( sum(MK_Job_LedgerEntries[Total_Cost_LCY]) ,DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date],today() ,-2,MONTH))

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.

HI @amitchandak 

Thanks for the prompt reply, its very much appreciated.

I definitely have costs in lasty 2 months and i have extended this out to 6 months and 1 year and still blank.

I can't seem to get Datesinperiod working at all for me.

I tried to create a new Calender Table and the only thing in it is Date and then when i use the below I get the following error?
