DAX with dimension data (min or max)

Hi.

 

I have the following formula and its working.

 

CALCULATE([Total_Quantity];Fact_Forecast_Received[Type]=1;Fact_Forecast_Received[Current date]="2016-02-01")

 

Will now use selection box to select two dates = Current date and then use the min and max function to create two

columns. One with the max value selected and one with min value selected.

 

I have tried to use min and max like below with now success.

 

CR_min = min(Fact_Forecast_Received[Current date])

 

CALCULATE([Total_Quantity];Fact_Forecast_Received[Type]=1;Fact_Forecast_Received[Current date]=[CR_min])

You probably received the following message: "A CALCULATE function was used in a TRUE/FALSE expression as a table filter. This is not allowed".

 

Note that

CALCULATE( someExpression ; Table[Column] = someConstant )

is a shortcut for

CALCULATE( someExpression ; FILTER( ALL(Table[Column]) ; [Column] = someConstant ) )

 

However, if you use a measure to filter your data, you need to write the full filter expression:

FILTER( ALL(Fact_Forecast_Received[Current date]);
       [Current date]=[CR_min]
)
