How to create a dynamic start and end date for DATESBETWEEN function?

Hey there,
I have a calculation created by datesbetween. I used Today()-7 function for the start and Today() for end date. BUt now I want to change it with a dynamic date which comes from my date slicer. Can anyone help me on this please?

Add the variable in a measure to see whether it returns the correct date

e.g.

Measure MIN_DATE = CALCULATE(MIN('Calendar'[Date]),ALLSELECTED('Calendar'[Date]))

Hi,

Replace today()-7 with min(calendar[date]) and today() with max(calendar[date]).  Ensure that the Date slicer is built from the Calendar Table.

Hello @Kira_Net

Considering you have a Calendar table, you need to write 2 measures or variables and call these measures in datesbetween function.

Measure =

var _min_date = CALCULATE(MIN('Calendar'[Date]),ALLSELECTED('Calendar'[Date]))

var _max_date = CALCULATE(MAX('Calendar'[Date]),ALLSELECTED('Calendar'[Date]))

RETURN

CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Sales]),
DATESBETWEEN('Calendar'[Date], _min_date , _max_date
)
)

I have similar approach for my problem statement to count no. of rows between two dates
but with this solution, its showing me the count of all rows.

Hey @themistoklis Thank you. I used the variable for the start and end date but it still showing me blank on my score card. the calculation works fine when I use today() and today ()-7 for start and end date but it only gives me the last week result. I wanted to create the flexeblity for users to filter out date using slicer.

Create a detached calendar (list of dates).

Drad calender to a slicer with a slicer bar (with min and max range)

Create dax measure ....

VAR mindate = MIN(calandar(date))
VAR maxdate = MIN(calandar(date))
RETURN
DATEDIFF(mindate , maxdate , DAY )

I am not sure if this is exactly what you need, but I hope you can change the value as required.
