Filter DAX measure based of static date

Hi all,

 

I have a DAX measure that looks like this:

 

current qtr sales = Calculate(sum([sales]),[FY_QTR] = "2022-Q1")

 

I also have a table in Power query named 'Current QTR' that states the current QTR. it looks like this

current fy qtr
2022-Q1

 

Now I want to point the DAX measure where the [FY_QTR] filter is to look at the 'Current QTR' table so that the dax is automatically updated with the most recent qtr date.

 

Is this possible?

Hi @Vind1989 ,

Try changing your measure to something like this :

current qtr sales =

var _qtr = max('Current QTR'[current fy qtr])
var _sales = Calculate(sum([sales]),[FY_QTR] = _qtr)

 

RETURN
_sales

 

Kind regards,

Rohit
