Conflict between Filter and Measure

Dear Powerbi Gods,

My measure and new column/Filter is conflicting with each other.


I have 2 databases. Customer_database and Visit_database.

They are linked by Customer and Customer Visited respectively on 1 to many relationship.



S/noCustomerLast visit dateLast Visit Time Period
1Customer A1 Oct 2021Between 7-14 days
2Customer B10 Oct 2021Last 7 Days
3Customer C11 Sep 2021More than a Month
4Customer D Not Visited


Date of Visit Customer Visited
11 Sep 2021Customer C
1 Oct 2021Customer A
10 Oct 2021Customer B


Last Visit Date and Last Visit Time Period is New Column.

Last Time Period is also used as a filter.


Last Visit Time Period =
IF(ISBLANK('Customer_Database'[Last Visit Date]), "Not Visit",
IF('Customer_Database'[Last Visit Date] >= TODAY()-6, "Last 7 Days",
IF('Customer_Database'[Last Visit Date] >= TODAY()- 13,"Between 7-14 days",
If('Customer_Database'[Last Visit Date] >= TODAY()- 30, "14 days to a Month",
"More than a Month"


Days from Last Visit is a Measure.

Days from Last Visit= IF(ISBLANK(DATEDIFF(LASTDATE('Visit_Database'[Date of Visit]),TODAY() ,DAY)), "0", (DATEDIFF(LASTDATE('Visit_Database'[Date of Visit]),TODAY() ,DAY)))


Dashboard should show

CustomerLast visit dateLast Visit Time PeriodDays from Last Visit
Customer A1 Oct 2021Between 7-14 days11
Customer B10 Oct 2021Last 7 Days1
Customer C11 Sep 2021More than a Month30
Customer D Not Visited 


"Last Visit Time Period" Filter is working fine without "Days for Last Visit". It is able to filter accordingly.

Once I added Days from Days from Last Visit, the filter is not working correctly and the data doesn't show correct data too.

I realised through trial and error on Days from Last Visit will show 0 for those visited within last 24 hrs. Not sure if it is causing the conflict.

Grateful if you could help me. Really appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

@keewei87 , Try like

Days from Last Visit= IF(ISBLANK(max('Visit_Database'[Date of Visit])),0 ,DATEDIFF(Max('Visit_Database'[Date of Visit]),TODAY() ,DAY))

Thanks @amitchandak. Really appreciate your reply!!


I managed to solve the issue!!

I made the measure a calculated column instead and use the dax format as you provided but max date not working for me. But lastdate works for me.
