Count in dim table filtered by start and end date

Hi,

I need help with the following issue.

 

Here is an example of the table that I have as input (round about 650 rows):

Machine WarrantyStartWarrantyEnd
A01.04.201830.03.2019
B03.05.202002.05.2022
C02.09.202101.09.2022
D19.01.202218.01.2023
E20.09.202219.09.2024

 

Now I need to know, during which time period we had, have and will have machines covered by warranty.

I'm not sure whether this works with a dim date table but I thought it could look like this:

DateCount of machines in warranty 
01.04.20181which is machine A
...  
01.01.20222which are machines B and C
02.01.20222which are machines B and C
03.01.20222which are machines B and C
...  
01.01.20232which are machines D and E
...  
20.01.20231which is machine E
...  
01.01.20250 

 

First column is just an dim date table starting 01.01.2018 and ends 01.01.2030 and the 2nd column is the column that i need as result.

At the end I like to look 12 monthes back from today and make a forecast for the coming 12 monthes.

 

I would appreciate any help that I can get.

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Sebastian

Hi @RichterSeb 

You can refer to the following example.

The sample table is a date table

Create two columns in the date table

Count = var _filter=COUNTROWS(FILTER('Table',[Date]>=[WarrantyStart]&&[Date]<=[WarrantyEnd]))
return IF(_filter=BLANK(),0,_filter)

machines in warranty = var _fliter=FILTER('Table',[Date]>=[WarrantyStart]&&[Date]<=[WarrantyEnd])
return CONCATENATEX(_fliter,[Machine ],",")
