Hello Power BI community,

 

I am struggling to find the solution that would work best for my problem.  I essentially have two tables I am working with, one has the start and end dates, the other contains the month of which certain events are occurring.  I basically need to write a statement along the lines of:

"If start date <= X month <= end date then "Present"
else "Absent""

 

I've tried to write this statement but to no avail.  I am unsure if I need to join the tables together, or if there is a way I can go about doing it without joining them together?  Any help would be fantastic.

Hi,

I am not sure how your datamodel looks like, but I tried to create a sample pbix file like below.

Please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

I hope the below can provide some ideas on how to create a solution for your datamodel.

expected result measure: =
VAR _condition =
    COUNTROWS (
        FILTER (
            Data,
            Data[Startdate] <= MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] )
                && Data[Enddate] >= MIN ( 'Calendar'[Date] )
        )
    )
RETURN
    IF (
        HASONEVALUE ( Data[ID] ) && HASONEVALUE ( 'Calendar'[Year-Month sort] ),
        IF ( _condition = 1, "Present", "Absent" )
    )
