Create table with relative dates from slicer

Hi folks,

 

So i want to create a table in Power BI that shows an activity count for the date selected by the user in a drop down.

 

The complicated piece is I then want to show in the next column the sum of the 5 days prior to that selected date and in the last column show the sum of the 20 days prior to that selected date.

 

For example if the user selected 21st April:

RegionDaily CountPrior 5 DaysPrior 20 days
Europe100

500

2000
Japan20010004000
US30015006000

 

My data would be in this format:

DateRegionCount
01/04/2020EUROPE50
01/04/2020US75
01/04/2020JAPAN20
02/04/2020EUROPE30
02/04/2020US

17

02/04/2020JAPAN

72

and so on

 

ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @nicksinclair01 ,

I created a sample pbix file(see attachment) for you, please check whether that is what you want.

1. Create a date dimension table

2. Create 3 measures as below to get daily count, the count for prior 5 days and the count for prior 20 days

 

Daily Count = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Count]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Date]=SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date])))
Prior 5 Days = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Count]),DATESBETWEEN('Table'[Date],SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date])-5,SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date])))
Prior 20 Days = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Count]),DATESBETWEEN('Table'[Date],SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date])-20,SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date])))

You can aslo refer the following video to get it.

If the above ones are not what you want, please provide your expected result with backend logic and specific examples. Thank you.

@nicksinclair01 , measures like

 

measure =
var _max = maxx(allselected('Date'), 'Date'[Date])
return
calculate(sum(Table[Value]), filter(all('Date'), 'Date'[Date] <=_max && 'Date'[Date] >= _max -5))

 


measure 2=
var _max = maxx(allselected('Date'), 'Date'[Date])
return
calculate(sum(Table[Value]), filter(all('Date'), 'Date'[Date] <=_max && 'Date'[Date] >= _max -20))

Thank you Amit,

Could you please explain how i would implement this? 

I see i would need a separate table called Date, i assume this would just contain all the inscope dates from the main table.

Does this need to be linked to the main table?

For the slicer, would this be against the main table or the dates table?
