Daily Inventory Tracking

I am tracking car lot inventory. I have a unique identifier for each car, a date the car entered the lot and a date the car was sold.

 

 Example

Lot NumberNewSold
15986312/15/20221/12/2023
4589657/23/202211/8/2022
8965988/19/20221/6/2022
2563251/7/2023 
5698528/3/20228/29/2022

 

Is there a was to use these 2 dates so can could look back at a date in time and see how many cars were on lot for a specific day.

Hi @BrandonG ,

 

You might consider creating an unconnected calendar table for the slicer.

Then create a measure like this:

Number of cars =
VAR _selected_date =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Calendar'[Date] )
VAR _no =
    COUNTROWS (
        FILTER (
            ALL ( 'Table' ),
            'Table'[New] <= _selected_date
                && (
                    'Table'[Sold] > _selected_date
                        || 'Table'[Sold] = BLANK ()
                )
        )
    ) + 0
RETURN
    _no

How would you do this if you needed that count of vehicles by like make, model, fuel, (basically across many categories), etc.?  I will need to plot this on a chart for every day going back years.  

 

I'm new to Power BI and truly appreciate the help!
