Is there a DAX function that will allow me to see if a value does not show up in a future period?

Hi All,

 

Hope someone can give me guidance on this Power BI problem I'm having. I need to be keep track of all increases and decreases in account support each month. Part of this is being able to see if a value appears in the succeeding month.

 

I have a table that looks like below:

 

Activity MonthEmployee IDClient NameEIDClientNameEmployee CountIn Succeeding Month?
Jul-21John DoeABCJohn DoeABC1No
Sep-21John DoeABCJohn DoeABC1Yes
Oct-21John DoeABCJohn DoeABC1No
Jul-21John DoeXYZJohn DoeXYZ1Yes
Aug-21John DoeXYZJohn DoeXYZ1Yes
Sep-21John DoeXYZJohn DoeXYZ1Yes
Oct-21John DoeXYZJohn DoeXYZ1Yes
Nov-21John DoeXYZJohn DoeXYZ1N/A

 

Is there a DAX function that will allow me to get the results similar to the 'In Succeeding Month?' column?

 

N/A in November is because the latest report date is Nov-2021 so there is no future month to refer to.

 

Thanks,
E

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Please find the below solution,

// Calculated column

Available_in_Succeeding_month =
var is_exists = COUNTROWS(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Client Name]=EARLIER('Table'[Client Name]) && DATEDIFF(EARLIER('Table'[Activity Date]),'Table'[Activity Date],MONTH)=1))
return IF(is_exists=1,"Yes","No")
