## Measure to return value between two dates (start date and end date)

Hi,

I want to create a measure that returns the number of units between 2 dates. I have went through so many different types of codes I may be over complicating this for myself. I have a table with the following type of data :

 Contract ID Units Start Date End Date 123 11 01/01/2000 30/06/2018 123 10 01/07/2018 01/04/2021 123 12 02/04/2021

I want the measure to return the number of units. I have a chart with year as the axis but for some reason it doesnt seem to want to plot correctly to show how the number of unit changes over a given period of time.

For example a chart to show when the number of units changed from 10 to 12 etc between two dates. I am able to produce the below manually by using a chart but I need it as a measure to add to another chart:

Thanks

It would be like the below. I just wish to have a measure that will show how the number of units has changed over the years:

THIS CODE WORKED:

Units =
CALCULATE(
VALUES(Contract[Units]),
FILTER(
Contract,
Contract[EffectiveDate] <= MAX('Date'[Date])
&& Contract[EndDate] >= MIN('Date'[Date])

but to no avail.
