The expert that provide that feedback/solution meationed the the solution could also be worked out using a measure, how would this be done.

 

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

hi, @Anonymous 

Just use this formula to create a dim date table

Dim Date=ADDCOLUMNS(CALENDAR(MIN('Table'[Time]),MAX('Table'[Time])),"1st of month",DATE(YEAR([Date]),MONTH([Date]),1))

or CALENDAR(MIN('Table'[Time]),MAX('Table'[Time])) and then add a 1st of month calculate column

 

Then create the relationship withDim table by Date column and Time column.

Now when create the visual, use "1st of month" column by the same logic.

hi, @Anonymous 

You could try this way:

Step1:

Define a dim date table by this formula

Dim Date = FILTER(CALENDAR(MIN('Table'[Time]),MAX('Table'[Time])),DAY([Date])=1)

Step2:

Then create the relationship with data table.

Step3:

Just add a conditional "+0" in measure like below:

Measure = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Observations]))+0

Result:
