Dax "Puzzle" 2 - Help with virtual Table

Project Table

ProjectBeginning DateEnd Date 
Project A1 jun5jun 
Project B1april10 april 

 

(Virtual Table)

ProjectBeginning DateEnd DateTotal Days
Project A1 jun5jun5
Project B1april10 april10 

 

So I need to create a virtual Table where I add a column with the total days for each project, something along these lines:

 

var virtual table: ADDCOLUMNS(Project Table, "@Total Days", Countrows(datesbetween(Dates, Selectedvalue(Beginning Date),Selectedvalue( End date),) 

Then I want to sum the newly virtual column, that in this particular case would be 5+10 = 15,


I tried with a variable "current_project" to make the Datesbetween work, and get the total days for each project row by row. But the measure does not work in the totals, and in the charts only works If I place "Project" as legend.... If I do not filter per project, it does not work.

Any help?

Many thanks

You were close. Here's your measure

 

 

Total Days = int(SUMX(ADDCOLUMNS('Project Table',"Days",'Project Table'[End Date]-'Project Table'[Beginning Date]+1),[Days]))
