Current Day Card

Hello,

I need to add a simple card that gives the current day of the year (1 out of 365). I am deriving this column from a calander and everything seems to move smoothly until I add the field to the card and I end up with a count of the field or a sum. I think I need to create a measure that will filter the date table only to 'TODAY' so that I am returned the day of the year for that specific row.

I am not sure how I should structure this DAX formula, fairly new to the program.

Thank you!

Try this measure.  I use a variable for TODAY to cut down on the ()

Day of Year = 
VAR TodayIs = TODAY()
RETURN DATEDIFF( DATE ( YEAR (TodayIs) , 1 , 1) , TodayIs , DAY)
