How to find amount of days between quarters & amount of days between end of quarter and today?

Hi there!

I'm trying to find out two separate values:

1. The amount of days in a quarter. I am using a 'source_data_view'[date] field, although in my report it I only have two filters: Quarter and Fiscal Year (single select).

So, if I choose Q1 2020, then the date range will be between 10/1/2019 and 12/31/2019, and it will return 91 days.

2. The amount of days between the last of the selected quarter minus today.

So, if I choose Q1 2020, then it will show the last day of the quarter minus today.

Meaning, the last day of Q1 2020, 12/31/2019 minus today, 3/10/2021, would return -435 days.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Try the following formula:

``````QuarterDay =
DATEDIFF(
MINX(
ALLSELECTED(source_data_view),
source_data_view[Date]
),
MAXX(
ALLSELECTED(source_data_view),
source_data_view[Date]
),
DAY
)``````
``````Q_End_Today =
-DATEDIFF(
MAXX(
ALLSELECTED(source_data_view),
source_data_view[Date]
),
TODAY(),
DAY
)``````

This is my PBIX file.

@Anonymous , Not very  clear

Assume the qtr coming from a date table

Measure =

var _min = minx(allselected(Date), Date[Date])

var _max = today()

return

datediff(_min ,_max, day)

Thanks, @amitchandak,

However, when I create a measure for the var_min, when I try to enter DATE['source_data_view'[Date], it gives me an error with the red underline.
