Count Of Days in Summary Table from multiple data sets


I am trying to do a count of days (preferrably network days). I have multiple data sets. Each data set has a date that the order went to a different status. I have created a summary table that shows the dates by order number and am needing to do a count of days between the dates. PowerBi.png

Hi emily,


can you tell me which dates to be used to calculate number of days .

1. Are you trying to calculate number of days between 'Date Assigned to Eng' and Date WO comp by End' for example ?


To calculate number of days between any 2 dates , you can use DATEDIFF Dax expression


DATEDIFF( StartDate,EndDate,<Interval>)

Interval can be one of the following



hope this would help , else please let me know are extactly you like to achieve.




Yes. I am trying to do for example the count of days between "Date Assigned to Eng" and "Date Approved in MX". The dates come from different data sets and the table pictured is a visulization table I created.

Hi @emilyhenderson , 

I am not clear about your requirement, if possible could you please inform me more detailed information(such as your expected output and your sample data)? Then I will help you more correctly.

Please do mask sensitive data before uploading.

Thanks for your understanding and support.
Best Regards,
Zoe Zhi

Hi Zoe,


I am including some screen shots in hopes that it helps. I am trying to make a summary table from 9 data sets.

6 of those sets have dates that an order went to a specific status.

I need to add a column with a count of days between 'Needs Design Date' and 'Date Assigned to Engineer'. Those 2 dates come from different data sets ('Needs Design Date' and 'WDesign Dates'). Does that help? In excel I would add a column and use NETWORKDAYS function.
