Issue in displaying date format

Hi,

 

I have a date format in a slicer like 202106 and 202405. I want to show these dates in an alphabetical way like
"June 2021 to May 2024". 
I have data from the backend that starts from 1990 and ends in 2040 as a date range. When I try to select the date range if I change the minimum date it defaults to 1990 likewise with the maximum date range it defaults to 2040.
This is how it looks

l am using a default two year slicer along with the period slicer.
default two year is where I am displaying data for the last two years automatically if I reset in power bi service.
I have synced the normal date slicer and this two year default slicer. 

when I try to change the "To Date" it is by default showing the minimum date as below.

As in above usual date I have is 202405 in the "To Date", I have changed it to 202401.
after changing "From Date" defaulted to minimum date of my backend date from server.

Hi @vamsi_vk ,

Suppose we have:

Please create a new measure:

Measure = CALCULATE(MIN('Date'[Month Year]),'Date'[Year Month]=MIN('Date'[Year Month])) & "-" & CALCULATE(MIN('Date'[Month Year]),'Date'[Year Month]=MAX('Date'[Year Month]))

output:

Hi,

 

Please help me with this issue as you have given a solution and it worked halfway through my process.
to go in detail. here's below

Hi,

Thank you for the help. The solution you have shared helped me through halfway.

If I try to choose the range of dates in "To Date" side, the "From Date" is going to minimum value as shown below.

This is happening only when I select the "To Date". 
can you help me to make it as per my selection.

is this a text box?

Try to create a table and in the values put the earlist date and latest date:

Hi,

Yes, I have used text box for that to display the selected dates. 
creating a table and used the date as you have mentioned. It didn't work out.

 

my apologies, I might not be more specific about the issue. Let me try to explain clearly.

As I have taken a slicer(between[to be specific]) "from date" and "to date". If I try to change from date and entered a date, the "to date" automatically goes to 2040. Cause it is choosing the max date from the table .

Likewise, with the minimum date.
If I select any specific date either from or to date, I want to see the exact same dates to be displayed as the input.
Thanks in advance.

As shown in the screenshot

If I try to choose "To Date" which is 202405, currently we are in May 2024 which is the latest. It should display May 2024 instead of January 2040. Even if I choose any future dates from now, automatically it should replicate the selection which I made but, by default, it is choosing the max date which we have given at the backend level.
Likewise, the same with the "From Date". It defaults to 1990.

Also, I have made a custom date format which displays only the Year and month in the slicer.

Hi,

 

Could you be more specified in what range you want the period be seletced? 

From what I understand from backend you have range from 1990 till 2040.

Also, how did you changed the minimum and maximum of the date range?
