Date Table Question



I have a report that I am showing weekly and monthly information for different metrics. This report refreshes with new data each Friday and will be distibuted via a screenshot sent by email subscription that will send out each Monday Morning.  The weekly information goes from Saturday to Friday, so for example week 1 of 2023 if 12/31/2022 through 1/6/2023. I have the weekly information set up by saying the end of the week is in the last calendar week, so that it will always catch the previous weeks information, my issue is arising in finding out how to calculate the monthly information. 


I want to show from the beginning of the month to the most recent week end, except for the first week when the month crosses over to a new month I want to show the prior month total. For an example, for the report that will send out 1/23/2023, I want to show data from January 1 until January 20, as that is my most recent week end. But, for the report that sends out on 2/6/2023, I want to show all of the data for the month of January, as the most recent week as of 2/6 will be 1/28-2/3. I have a measure set up that will look at the most recent week of data and if the month of the start date and the end date are not equal then it will return the month number of the previous month, otherwise it will return the current month. My current measure is set up:


VAR _SOW = CALCULATE(MAX('Date Table'[Start of Week]), FILTER('Date Table', [Start of Week] < TODAY()))
VAR _EOW = CALCULATE(MIN('Date Table'[End of Week]), FILTER('Date Table', [End of Week] < TODAY()))

This measure works successfully, I just am stuck on where to go from here to use this measure to filter my table showing monthly data. Thank you in advance!

@Greg_Deckler My Date Table looks something like this:


DateStart of WeekEnd of WeekWeekMonthMonth Name
1/4/202312/31/20221/6/2023 12/31/2022 - 1/6/20231January
1/5/202312/31/20221/6/2023 12/31/2022 - 1/6/20231January
1/6/202312/31/20221/6/2023 12/31/2022 - 1/6/20231January
1/7/20231/7/20231/13/20231/7/2023 - 1/13/20231January
1/8/20231/7/20231/13/20231/7/2023 - 1/13/20231January


and my expected result will look something similar to this (note this will be the expected result that will distribute on 1/9/2023) :

Weekly Report (for 12/31/2022 - 1/6/2023) :

GroupMetric 1Metric 2
Group 113
Group 246
Group 378


Monthly Report (for December) :

GroupMetric 1Metric 2
Group 12555
Group 23060
Group 32070


So as you can see, since the start date of the week and the end date of the weekly report are in different months, my monthly report will show the total amount for December, and then for the report that will distribute on 1/23/2022, the weekly report will be for 1/14/2023 - 1/20/2023, and the Monthly Report will be for 1/1/2023 - 1/20/2023, since the start of week and end of week dates are both in the same month, which will show from the beginning of January to most recent date.
