Filter out articles based on individual date

Hi experts!

I have a table that contains all our product in this format:

ProductValueSizeDate
A  01.01.2023
A1  10.06.2024
A2  01.05.2024

 

In the last column you will find the data until the product was active. After that date the product was deactivated.

I have multiple reports / pages based on this product table. These reports show different data.

Now I would like to have some kind of filter on all pages to filter the products out based on the selected date.

For instance: I have a bar chart that shows me the sales YTD aggregeated per month. Now, if I look into the bar chart in June this year, then I don't want to see any entry for product A since this is already deactivated.

How is this possible?

Hi @joshua1990 ,

 

Thanks for the reply from lucadelicio .

 

I just have a question - is "01.05.2024" in dd-mm-yyy format or mm-dd-yyyy format? But in any case, in your description, it should be expired after this date, so why can you see A2 when you select June?

 

Please try:

 

Create a disconnected date table and month column:

Date = CALENDAR(MIN('Table'[Date]),MAX('Table'[Date]))

Month = MONTH('Date'[Date])

 

Put the month column in the slicer.

 

Create a measure:

Measure =
VAR _selDate = SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Month])
RETURN IF(MONTH(MAX('Table'[Date])) >= _selDate,MAX('Table'[Date]),BLANK())

 

Replace the measure with the Date column of the original table and put it in the table visual object.

 

The final page visual effect is as follows:

If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me.

 

The pbix file is attached.

Hi @joshua1990 ,

You have to consider that the status of the product change in the time.

So if a product is inactive now, this not means that it could be yesterday.

 

For instance to verify if a product is active TODAY, you can create a calculated column.

 

ActiveToday =
IF([Date] >= TODAY, 1, 0)

Then you can use this filter in all yours pages.
But as i explain before this not work in the past.
I think for the report that shows the historical data you have to select a specific date of validity to do the comparison.
