Filtering Table with Custom Measure

I am trying to filter my Date table based on a calculation which returns yesterday's date if no date is selected by the user on the date selector. However, when I define this measure, I am unable to use it to filter my date table when I call it in my calculations? Is there a known limitation to use a custom measure to filter a table?

 

To clarify...

I define a measure to set the default date for the page...

 

Default Date = IF(ISFILTERED('Dates '[date]), max('Dates (SDW - Prod)'[date_part]), Today()-1) 

 

Then I attempt to sum my sales data for the default date with the following....

 

Day Sales = CALCULATE(SUM('Sales'[Amount]), 'Dates'[date] = [Default Date])    ---> Sums for all dates!

 

When the Date table is unfiltered, 'Default Date' is set to Today()-1 and displays correctly when I assign this measure to a card. However, when I apply this measure in the calculation, it does not filter the dates as expected. Instead it sums the sales for all dates in the table.

 

Also, this calculation works correctly when I pass the same logic directly to the calculation...

 

Day Sales = IF(ISFILTERED('Dates'[date]), CALCULATE(SUM('Sales'[Amount]), FILTER('Dates', 'Dates'[date] = TODAY()-1)),Calculate(SUM('Sales'[Amount]), FILTER('Dates', Dates'[date] = MAX('Dates'[date])))   ----> Works as expected

 

I would like to define this measure so I can use it in other daily calculations instead of having to implement IF statements in each measure.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Suppose there is a [Date] fields in the 'Sales' table. Then, please modify your measure as below:

Default Date =
IF ( ISFILTERED ( 'Dates'[date] ), MAX ( Dates[Date] ), TODAY () - 1 )

Day Sales =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Sales'[Amount] ),
    FILTER ( Sales, Sales[Date] = [Default Date] )
)
