## Date Year Functions in DAX Issue

Hi!
I am working on a Dax to have a year filter dynamically.

I have two columns to consider for Date

1. Year_String = Example Value = "2022 - 23". Data Type Strimg

2. Year_Num  = Example Value  = 2022 . Data Type int.

In my dax, I need build the logic with the difference of present year (2023 - Year_Num ) = 1 (Example - 2023 - 2022 = 1)

It should iterate with differnt measures as

(2023 - Year_Num ) = 2 (Example - 2023 - 2021 = 2)

(2023 - Year_Num ) = 3 (Example - 2023 - 2020 = 3)

(2023 - Year_Num ) = 4 (Example - 2023 - 2019 = 4)

(2023 - Year_Num ) = 5 (Example - 2023 - 2018 = 5)

(2023 - Year_Num ) = 6 (Example - 2023 - 2017 = 6)

I am even fine, if we can use the Year String column.

I will be using this Dax as the filter in the Table. I will be creating multiple var in the DAX. So the Year filter should be going well with that.

Are table and table the same table? There is no [no of grad] in the sample data, and I try to make you understand how to dynamically group calculations.

Since you want dynamic results. If it's a calculated column, please try

``````year column =
var counts = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('Table'),FILTER('Table',[Year_String]=MAX('Table'[Year_String])))
var grads_attr =CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('Table'),FILTER('Table',[no of years] = 1&&[Not Active]<>"Yes"&&[Year_String] =MAX('Table'[Year_String])))

If it's a measure, please try

``````year measure =
var counts = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('Table'),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[Year_String]=MAX('Table'[Year_String])))
var grads_attr =CALCULATE(COUNTROWS('Table'),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[no of years] = 1&&[Not Active]<>"Yes"&&[Year_String] =MAX('Table'[Year_String])))

We often use FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[Year_String]=MAX('Table'[Year_String]) to group in measures and use FILTER('Table',[Year_String]=EARLIER('Table'[Year_String]) to group in calcualted columns.

You can create a measure as

``````Expected = var _presentyear=YEAR(TODAY())
return _presentyear-SUM('Table'[Year_Num])``````

If you want to use Year_String column to calculate, please refer to this measure.

``````Expected2 = var _presentyear=YEAR(TODAY())
var _year=VALUE(LEFT(MAX('Table'[Year_String]),4))
return _presentyear-_year``````

Hi! Apprecoat the reply. Thanks for the dax. But this is not helping me to use the date function in countrows filter.  Please find the detail below.

Hi! Thanks for replying with the dax. I am afraid that this is not working. Here is the sample data

 S_ID Year_String Year_num no of years Grad Not Active 1 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 2 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 3 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 4 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 5 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 6 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no 7 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 8 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 9 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 10 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 11 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 12 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no 13 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 14 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 15 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 16 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 17 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 18 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no 19 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 20 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 21 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 22 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 23 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 24 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no 25 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 26 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 27 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 28 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 29 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 30 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no 31 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 32 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 33 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 34 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 35 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 36 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no 37 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 38 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 39 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 40 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 41 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 42 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no 43 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 44 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 45 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 46 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 47 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 48 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no 49 2022 - 23 2022 1 yes Yes 50 2021 - 22 2021 2 no no 51 2020 - 21 2020 3 yes Yes 52 2019 - 20 2019 4 no no 53 2018 - 19 2018 5 yes Yes 54 2017 - 18 2017 6 no no

I want help of date function in the filter. This is the dax I am trying

year_1 =
var counts = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table),Table[year_string] = "2022 - 23")
var grads_attr = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(table),table[no of grad] = 1,not(table[not active] in {"yes"}), table[year_string] = "2022 - 23")

this gives me the records of last year. But I have used the year value as Hard code value. I need change this to dynamic.

like wise I am using this formula for many years,

year_2 =
var counts = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table),Table[year_string] = "2021 - 22")
var grads_attr = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(table),table[no of grad] = 1,not(table[not active] in {"yes"}), table[year_string] = "2021 - 22")

year_3 =
var counts = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table),Table[year_string] = "2020 - 21")
var grads_attr = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(table),table[no of grad] = 1,not(table[not active] in {"yes"}), table[year_string] = "2020 - 21")

year_4 =
var counts = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table),Table[year_string] = "2019 - 20")
var grads_attr = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(table),table[no of grad] = 1,not(table[not active] in {"yes"}), table[year_string] = "2019 - 20")

year_5 =
var counts = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table),Table[year_string] = "2018 - 19")
var grads_attr = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(table),table[no of grad] = 1,not(table[not active] in {"yes"}), table[year_string] = "2018 - 19")

year_6 =
var counts = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table),Table[year_string] = "2017 - 18")
var grads_attr = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(table),table[no of grad] = 1,not(table[not active] in {"yes"}), table[year_string] = "2017 - 18")

Super User

@jayasurya_prud , You can have column

max(Table[Year_num]) - [Year_num]

or a meausre

Maxx(allselected(Table),Table[Year_num]) - max(Table[Year_num])

If this does not help
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
