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:

and here is pbix file, please try it.
