DateDiff DAX Error

I have to create the datediff between the 'project from date' and 'today' in days. 
However I am not able to specify 1st date parameter column.

Is there a way I can calculate difference between 2 dates?

Hi @chaitanyajiwani ,

 

There are two solutions:

 

1.Please create a new column:

 

Column = DATEDIFF('Table'[project from date],TODAY(),DAY)

2.Please create a new measure:

 

 

gap = DATEDIFF(MAX('Table'[project from date]),TODAY(),DAY)

@chaitanyajiwani ,Try this

DATEDIFF(TableName[Proj Start Date Column],Today(),DAY)

 

Don't forget to give thumbs up and accept this as a solution if it helped you!!!

Please take a quick glance at newly created dashboards : Restaurant Management Dashboard , HR Analytics Report , Hotel Management Report, Sales Analysis Report , Fortune 500 Companies Analysis , Revenue Tracking Dashboard

I tried that, but I am not able to add the first date parameter is i.e. 'Project From Date' column.

Hi @chaitanyajiwani 
Please try
DATEDIFF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( TableName[Proj Start Date Column] ),  Today ( ), DAY )
