Getting value from start of this month

Hello everyone,

 

I want to retrieve a "HEADCOUNT" value on the first day of the current month, using DAX.

How should I approach this? I feel like the answer's right in front of me, but have not had luck so far.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

I am not sure how your datamodel looks like, but please try something like below whether it suits your requirement.

 

Headcount measure: =
CALCULATE (
    MAX ( 'TableName'[HEADCOUNT] ),
    'TableName'[capturedate]
        = EOMONTH ( TODAY (), -1 ) + 1
)

Something like this?

HEADCOUNT2 =
VAR CurrentMonth = MONTH ('Table'[capturedate])
VAR CurrentYear = YEAR ('Table'[capturedate])
VAR MinDateInMonth =
MINX(
    FILTER (
        ALL('Table'[capturedate]),
        MONTH ('Table'[capturedate]) = CurrentMonth&&
        YEAR ('Table'[capturedate]) = CurrentYear
    ),
    'Table'[capturedate]
)
VAR ValueInMonth =
CALCULATE(
     VALUES('Table'[headcount]),  
    'Table'[capturedate] = MinDateInMonth,
    ALL()
)
RETURN
ValueInMonth

Thank you, it worked!

 

Is there also a way to extract the same value from the first day, but of the previous month (instead of the current)?

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback.

Please try writing a measure like below.

The link down below, that describes about EOMONTH DAX function, might help.

 

Headcount measure Prev.month: =
CALCULATE (
    MAX ( 'TableName'[HEADCOUNT] ),
    'TableName'[capturedate]
        = EOMONTH ( TODAY (), -2 ) + 1
)
