Combining Data from two tables

Hello,

I'm not very familiar with PowerBi yet and have searched quite a bit but couldn't find what I was looking for.

 

I have 2 tables where both tables contain the date.
How can I create 1 date slicer with which I select the date of both tables equally?

Hi @Frixel ,

 

You probably want to have a date dimension that you connect to both tables.

Here some material that should help you:

Why we need a date dimension Power BI (youtube.com)

Using a Date Dimension Table in Power BI (sqlshack.com)

Why (almost) every Power BI report needs a date table? - BI Samurai

 

You can create a date dimensions in different ways.

 

Let me know if this helps 🙂
