How to track number of weeks that have elapsed between a unique date and today, by each date value.

I have a date table I created beginning with a specific date - 5/18/2018. I have it set up to populate a date entry for every date between that date and today so overtime dates will continue to get added  (I used this DAX code: CALENDAR("5,18,2018",TODAY()) ) I now need to keep track of the number of weeks that have passed from 5/18/2018 to today each week and I need to be able to assign which week date falls under. This is to track how long a version of software has been in GR. Listed below is what I would like to achieve. I tried using WEEKNUM but that starts as of 1/1/2018. Does anyone know how to do this?

 

 

 

DateWeeks since GR
5/18/20181
5/19/20181
5/20/20181
5/21/20181
5/22/20181
5/23/20181
5/24/20181
5/25/20182
5/26/20182
5/27/20182
5/28/20182
5/29/20182
5/30/20182
5/31/20182

You need to add a column which uses DATEDIFF function.

 

=DATEDIFF(date1, date2, weeks)

 

Basically provides the difference between the two dates in weeks.

Sorry - I forgot mention that I tried that and this is what I get for that what is shown below. If I reverse it, I get negative values.

I see that it's calculating correctly. Or did you want something else? Can you provide what numbers you are expecting?

What I was looking to achieve is in my original post (scroll up). I actually just figured it out (see below) - I should have been using the start date instead of today().

 

Thanks!

@krfaughnan Please try with this...

 

Test08 = ADDCOLUMNS( CALENDAR("2018-05-18",TODAY()),
                    "WeekNo",IF(WEEKDAY([Date],2)>=5, WEEKNUM([Date],2)+1,WEEKNUM([Date],2))-20
                   )
