## First Week of Month to Include Days from Previous Month

I am trying to create a Matrix that has columns for each date of the first week of the month and list sales by department. I want this to include any day of the first week that occurred in the previous month. For instance, for the month of May, the the matrix should have a column for each day between Monday 4/29 thru Sunday 5/5 (we start our week on Monday). The page has a Fiscal Year and Month slicer for users to interact with.

In the below on the first Matrix, I am not able to get 4/29 and 4/30 columns to display.

I am able to group them by week and return the correct total (second matrix) by using the below measure for the Sales data:

``````Weekly Sales =
CALCULATE(
[Gross Sales]
,DATESBETWEEN('Date'[Date],min('Date'[WeekStart]),max('Date'[WeekEnd]))
,All('Date'[Fiscalyear],'Date'[MonthName])
)``````

I cannot however figure out how to make the two April date columns appear on the top matrix. Any suggestion on how to acheive this?

Hi @dwelsh

You can refer to the following sample data.

Sample data

1.I create a calendar table and create a relationship among the table.

2.Create a measure.

``````MEASURE =
VAR a =
DATE ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Year] ), MONTH ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) ), 1 )
VAR b =
a - WEEKDAY ( a, 2 ) + 1
VAR c =
a + 7
- WEEKDAY ( a, 2 )
RETURN
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Value] ), DATESBETWEEN ( 'Calendar'[Date], b, c ) )
``````

3.Put the following field to the matrix visual. the date column is belong to the data table not the calendar table.

Output
