Filter report by date corresponding to dates on or between two date columns

Background / setup:

I got three fact tables (data from three different Sharepoint Lists) linked up to one Date Dimension Table. I'm using a date slicer to filter my report so that I can view how many items that were created on any particular day. 

 

Problem:

For one of the fact tables, instead of showing items created per date, I'd like to view "Valid items" for any given date. Valid items will be items where the chosen date falls on or between separate columns for "Valid from" and "Valid to".

 

I'm not too experienced with Power BI, and I can't wrap my head around how this could be achieved. Hope someone can give some guidance on the matter. 🙂

Hi, @tslupphaug 

 

You can try the following methods.

Count1 = CALCULATE(COUNT('Facts 1'[Title]),FILTER(ALL('Facts 1'),[Created]=SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date])))+0
Count2 =
CALCULATE ( COUNT ( 'Facts 2'[Title] ),
    FILTER ( ALL ( 'Facts 2' ),
        [Valid from] <= SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] )
            && [Valid to] >= SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] )
    )
) + 0

Yes, this is exactly the result I want. Thank you!

@v-zhangti How could I also show a table in my report with all the valid items?

Hi,

You may download my PBI file from here.
