## Find Top - Bottom Performers

Hello all,

I'd like to show top - bottom brands, based on

• margin % of last 4 weeks sales

Margin % Last 28 Days Sales =
CALCULATE ( [Total Margin %],
DATESINPERIOD ( 'Sales'[Sales Date],
LASTDATE ( 'Sales'[Sales Date] ), -28, DAY ))

• and brand's share in related category

Margin Share Watch=

VAR MarginAmount28Days =
CALCULATE ( [Total Margin Amount],
DATESINPERIOD ( 'Sales'[Sales Date],
LASTDATE ( 'Sales'[Sales Date] ), -28, DAY ))

VAR MarginAmountWatch =
CALCULATE ( [Margin Amount Last 28 Days Sales],
KEEPFILTERS ( 'Sales'[Category] = "Watch" ),
ALL ( 'Product'[Brand Name]))

VAR Result = MarginAmount28Days / MarginAmountWatch
RETURN
Result

But instead of showing figures for last 4 weeks, it shows last 4 week of related brand.

e.g my last sales date is 25 September so it should calculate dates between August 29 - September 25,

but if a brand's last sale date was September 20, calculation was between  August 24 - September 20 which is wrong.

I believe I have to update my DATESINPERIOD formula in "Margin % Last 28 Days Sales", I tried to add a Variable to get MAX Date of Sales Table but couldn't write a correct measure.

How should I add Max Date to my formula?

edit: I added a sample file

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

I found the solution from another post calculating sum for max date

Instead of using LASTDATE in my formula to find latest date in Sales Table I used MAX.

original code

``````Margin % Last 28 Days Sales =
CALCULATE (
[Total Margin %],
DATESINPERIOD ( 'Sales Report'[Sales Date], LASTDATE ( 'Sales Report'[Sales Date] ), -28, DAY )
)``````

updated code

``````Margin % Last 28 Days Sales_V2 =
VAR LatestDate =
CALCULATE(MAX('Sales Report'[Sales Date]),
ALL('Sales Report'))
Return
CALCULATE (
[Total Margin %],
DATESINPERIOD ( 'Date'[Date], LatestDate, -28, DAY )
)``````

Hi @jamuka ,

Maybe you can try DATESBETWEEN function. Such like below:

``````sumOf_date =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'Table'[Value] ),
DATESBETWEEN ( 'Table'[Date], DATE ( 2022, 9, 25 ), TODAY() )
)``````

If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information and test data. Looking forward to your reply.

Best Regards,
Henry

hello @v-henryk-mstf,

I don't want to add static date to my measure because that means I have to change it every time.

Which at the moment I did by filtering my visual via date filter. I attached a sample file to my post.

kind regards
