Combine columns from different tables for one filter

Hi there,
first of all sorry for my bad english.
My problem:

I have about 10 tables in a report that contain all individual values (invoices, orders, etc.) for projects.

Now I need a filter (data slicer) that I can select using the date. However, the date must relate to the date of the invoice, the date of the order and the other individual values.
The tables are linked to one another with the project no.

So I can't just take the date of the invoice, as this is only based on that and not also on the order. How can I summarize the date columns of the 10 tables? Or is there another course of action?

@Meeresblume , Not very clear to me. But you need a common date table. This table should join with date( not date with time) of all the tables. Now you can use this date table to filter different tables 


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.
