Cumulative Counts based on two date values

Hello everyone,

I am working on a project to convert a manual excel report into a Power Bi dashbaord to create a line chart for three categories on items ( Urgent/ Minor/Major).

The raw data look like this:

 Work Item Id Severity New Week 42632 Minor 1/15/2017 42633 Major 1/15/2017 42634 Major 1/15/2017 42669 Major 1/15/2017 42670 Major 1/15/2017 42746 Minor 1/22/2017 42748 Minor 1/22/2017 42772 Major 1/22/2017

I want to have an intermediate table like:

 Week start date Urgent New Count 1/15/2017 0 1/22/2017 0 1/29/2017 1 2/5/2017 1 2/12/2017 6 2/19/2017 6

Here, 'Urgent New Count' ( similarly, 'Minor' and 'Major' item counts should be calculated) is calculated such that : If the Work Item is 'Urgent' and the 'New Week' column in the firsttable is less than the date mentioned in the second table, count it. The column ('Week start date') refers to the first date of every week ( Sunday is the first day of the week). This column's value will keep increasing every week as new dates get added to both the tables.

In excel, to calculate the 'Urgent New Count': COUNTIFS(Severity,"=*Urgent*",NewWeek, CONCATENATE("<",\$B5))

was used. Here, the 'Severity' criteria referred to the first 'Severity' column of first table and the the second argument does the comparision.

This would create a running count of work items where the current count may/may not be higher that the previous cell's count if there are any new items

Any help is really appreciated.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Please pay attentation to ' '(Space) in your data. This is my PBIX file.

You can create your columns like this:

```Urgent New Count =
CALCULATE (
COUNTROWS ( 'Table 1' ) + 0,
FILTER (
'Table 1',
'Table 1'[New Week] < EARLIER ( 'Table 2'[Date] )
&& ( 'Table 1'[Severity] ) = "Urgent"
)
)```
```Major New Count =
CALCULATE (
COUNTROWS ( 'Table 1' ) + 0,
FILTER (
'Table 1',
'Table 1'[New Week] < EARLIER ( 'Table 2'[Date] )
&& ( 'Table 1'[Severity] ) = "Major"
)
)```
```Minor New Count =
CALCULATE (
COUNTROWS ( 'Table 1' ) + 0,
FILTER (
'Table 1',
'Table 1'[New Week] < EARLIER ( 'Table 2'[Date] )
&& ( 'Table 1'[Severity] ) = "Minor"
)
)```
