IF Statement Date on Measure : date column not showing on options to use for calculation

Hello!

I have a Date column and I need to make a measure which is based on this sample:

crln-blue_0-1606980582376.png

 

The dates are always on a 12-month period. I made a measure for CEI and my goal is for the CEI to have a blank data for the first month (due to insufficient data because my date will always be on a 12-month period). My CEI measure formula is okay except for the first data on the first month, I would like it to be blank. So I tried to make a measure using an if else statement where I'd like to check the Month of my Date column, however, my Date column is not on the list of columns/measures that I use to have computations with.

 

Is there any other approach for this? Thanks in advance!

@crln-blue,

 

If the date columns are from the date table (Dates in this example), you could add this to the end of your measure:

 

IF ( MONTH ( MAX ( Dates[Date] ) ) = 1, BLANK (), MeasureValueHere )

 

This assumes the Dates table has a relationship with the data table.

Hi @crln-blue ,

 

Try this measure

CEI1 = IF(NOT(LEFT(MAX('Table'[Type]),3)="Jan"),MeasureValueHere))

 

Make sure "Show items with no data" has been enabled.

Hello to @DataInsights  and @v-stephen-msft !
Thank you for the reply. My first month is being calculated automatically and I just want it to leave it blank. I solved the problem by writing an IF statement because I also have another measure which is blank wherein my CEI measure is dependent to. All your answers are correct and thanks!
