IF statement with Dates in a measure

Hey there,

 

I'd like to create a measure that will calculate something for me if it match some given criteria. For instance, in the following image I wanna create a measure that will count the number of rows if the filtered date is over 16/03/2022. However, when I do that DAX do not let me finish the formula.

Just to make something clear, creating a calculated column is not an option because I need it to be dynamic.
What I wanna create whit this formula? If the date is on or after 16/03/2022, I'll not count some employees and to do so, I have created a measure with


var Excluded CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Base), FILTER(Base, Base[assignee] <> "Someone"))
return IF(Calendario[Data] > 16/03/2022, Excluded, CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Base)))

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi, @Anonymous 

 

Usually we use date() function when we use date.

measure =
IF (
    SELECTEDVALUE ( Calendario[Data] ) > DATE ( 2022, 3, 16 ),
    Excluded,
    CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ( Base ) )
)

You need to wrap Calendario[Data] inside a SELECTEDVALUE function.

Thanks for helping me.

I didn't understand how I have to create the formula. Could please show me?

Thanks in advance, buddy.

var Excluded CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Base), FILTER(Base, Base[assignee] <> "Someone"))
return IF( SELECTEDVALUE(Calendario[Data]) > 16/03/2022, Excluded, CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Base)))

@Anonymous , You can use a date slicer and filter date table from column or connected column. You can use before slicer

 

hard coded date will be like

var Excluded CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Base), FILTER(Base, Base[assignee] <> "Someone"))
return IF(Calendario[Data] > Date(2022,03,16) , Excluded, CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Base)))

Thanks for the reply.

The problem is that when I type  IF(Calendario[Data] >, the Bi underline the function showing that it has an

error in the formula. What did you meant with the first part of your reply? You can use a date slicer and filter date table from column or connected column. You can use before slicer. I didn't get that.
