How to pick out a specific value in a date field

Hey,

 

I want to pick out the month value out of a date value. The format of the date is DD/MM/YYYY.

 

When I've pulled out the month value I want to put it into a custom column with "Qtr1", "Qtr2" e.t.c. depending on the month

 

if [Monthly Reference Line] CONTAINS 10,11,12 then "Qtr 4"

 

Above is what I've tried so far

Hi @chris7990,

 

If you don't mind using the power query editor instead of going through DAX, then:

- Open your Query in the PQ Editor

- Make sure your date column is a Type: Date, if not, then change the type to date

- Select your date column

- On the upper ribbon, click Add Column, then Date, then Quarter, then Quarter of the year

 

This should create a new column based on the quarter of your date.

 

Hope that helps

Best,

Valentin

Hi@chris7990

You can try to use formula as below in Edit Queries:

 

Month No=Date.Month([Monthly Reference Line])

Quarter =Date.QuarterOfYear([Monthly Reference Line])

 

Of course, you can also use DAX function to add calculate column as:

 

Month No = Month([Monthly Reference Line])

Quarter = "qtr" & INT ( FORMAT ( [Monthly Reference Line], "q") )
