Duplicate date values in my dropdown list



with the help of chat GPT i have create a calculated coloumn 

End of Week =
    IF(ISBLANK([Shipment date]), BLANK(),
        [Shipment date] + 7 - WEEKDAY([Shipment date])
But when i use this coloumn as Dropdown in my dashboard, it repeats the values, ideally dropdown should be distinct values. i am not sure why my End of the week is repeating in slicer?
any help or suggestion would be great!

You probably need to create a separate Date table and join with fact table. That would be more efficient and work all time rather than using DAX functions such as distinct to handle above slicer duplicate issue.


Please search ChatGPT on how to create date table for your model.
