Data query help

Hello all,

 

Fairly new to Power BI Desktop - Hoping for your assistance here.

 

I have two tables (and I need to).

 

Table 1

Amount1 (number)

Date (Date)

 

Table 2

Amount2 (number)

DateFrom(Date)

 

Now... Table 2 is controlled by my customer. The idea is that they can control the content of the dashboard by changing the values in table 2. Contents in table 1 are change by my customers customers.

 

I need to create a maintenance free column or measure that show the following:

Total Amount1 where Date > DateFrom (meaning that this query will add all the values of Amount 1 together if the Date of that value is higher than the date (DateFrom) set in table 2).

 

Does it make sense?

 

How would I go about this?

 

Best regards

 

Michael

In this scenario, you just need to filter the Table1 context where Date > DateFrom in CALCULATE() function.

 

I assume you have table1 like:

Then create a measure in Table2:

 

Measure = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Amount1]),FILTER(Table1,Table1[Date]>MAX(Table2[DateFrom])))
