## Count by Date Measure

I created a date measure by pulling a date field based on a keyword search:

``DOT Date = CALCULATE(MAX(LoanContractPostClosingConditionLogs[DateReceived]),SEARCH("Deed of Trust", LoanContractPostClosingConditionLogs[Description],1,0)>0)``

So when I'm using this measure with the LoanNumber field, I'm getting something like this:

 LoanNumber DOT Date 001 7/9/2021 002 7/2/2021 003 7/2/2021 004 6/5/2021 005 6/5/2021 006 7/2/2021

If I want to take it a step further to count the number of loans for each DOT Date, so that it looks something like this:

 DOT Date Number of Loans 6/5/2021 2 7/2/2021 3 7/9/2021 1

How do I build a Number of Loans measure?  Is it possible to relate this DOT Date field to my Date table so that if I create a date slicer it'll reference the DOT Date?  Or I'd just have to build the slicer based on the DOT Date field itself?

@Anonymous try this measure, assuming you have a calendar table in your model, and to visualize, use date from calendar table and the following measure:

``````Loan Count by DOT Date =
VAR __LoansInDate =
FILTER (
SUMMARIZE ( Data, Data[Loan] ),
VAR __LoanDOTDate = [Loan DOT Date]
VAR __LoanDOTDateInDate =
FILTER (
'Calendar',
NOT ISBLANK ( __LoanDOTDate )  //can remove this condition if never going to be a blank Loan Max Date
&& 'Calendar'[Date] = __LoanDOTDate
)
VAR __IsLoanInDate = NOT ISEMPTY ( __LoanDOTDateInDate )
RETURN __IsLoanInDate
)
VAR Result =
CALCULATE (
DISTINCTCOUNT ( Data[Loan] ),
KEEPFILTERS ( __LoansInDate )
)
RETURN Result

``````

@Anonymous I assume Loan is a unique column in that table?

yes, it's unique 🙂

If you create a calculated column instead of a measure for "DOT Date" then it will be easy to summarize.

I can't create a calculated column because I'm working within a cube and I don't have admin rights 😞
