FORMAT INSTRUCTION WITHIN DYNAMIC TITLE MEASURE NOT APPLYING

I have a measure which shows which months have been selected from a slicer

The below syntax works, but ignores my FORMAT argument, therefore if I select Jan and Feb 2021 from my slicer (called Reporting Period), the FILTER measure displays "REPORTING MONTHS: 01/01/2021 | 01/02/2021"

FILTER = IF(ISFILTERED('Dim_Date'[REPORTING PERIOD]), "REPORTING MONTHS: "& UPPER(FORMAT(CONCATENATEX(VALUES('Dim_Date'[REPORTING PERIOD]),'Dim_Date'[REPORTING PERIOD]," | "),"MMM YYYY")))

What I want to appear is "REPORTING MONTHS: JAN 2021 | FEB 2021"

Is this possible within this type of measure?

@Anonymous - The FORMAT is outside of the CONCATENATEX so it will not be recognised as DATE.  You might be able to try something like:

FILTER = 
VAR _RepMths = 
DISTINCT(
SELECTCOLUMNS(
'Dim_Date' ,
"Formatted Reporting Months" ,
FORMAT( 'Dim_Date'[REPORTING PERIOD], "MMM YYYY")
)
)
RETURN
IF(
ISFILTERED('Dim_Date'[REPORTING PERIOD]),
"REPORTING MONTHS: "& UPPER( CONCATENATEX( _RepMths , [Formatted Reporting Months] ," | ") ),
BLANK()
)

Thanks you clever little sausage! It worked perfectly! Didn't occur to be to create a variable. Great 😄
