We want to calculate the difference in seconds between the two dates( start and end) selected from a slicer. As we are very new to this could anyone please help us out?
Solved! Go to Solution.
@PorkChop : We need to have the start and end dates to be selected from the user using a slicer. Will this measure work for that too ? We do not have any columns named ' Start date' and 'end date'. We have only one column as date which we are using in a slicer.
Interesting, maybe you could try
where [DATE] is the columnname of the slicer you are using?
@PorkChop : The DATE coulmn may have dates from 1 Nov 2016 till 30 Nov 2016. The selection from the slicer could be 2 Nov (start date) and 4 Nov (End date). We need these two dates ( 2 Nov and 4 Nov) , not the min and max dates in the date column. Will this measure work for that ?
Well i've not tested it i practice but it should do. When you are filtering using the slicer, it's actually like creating a new table of entries between those two dates. If we then pick the smallest and largest values in that table it's the same effect.
You'll want to test it, as I haven't but syntactically should be correct.
