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
)

@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.

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
)
