Need a Date Dimension that does back 9 and 12 months on my Date Table

I have added 2 Calculated Columns on my dates table (date table as a row for each date 1/1/2014 - 12/31/2017)

 

IsLast12Months = IF('Dates'[Date] <= TODAY(),IF('Dates'[Date] >= TODAY()-365,TRUE(),FALSE()),FALSE())

IsLast9Months = IF('Dates'[Date] <= TODAY(),IF('Dates'[Date] >= TODAY()-270,TRUE(),FALSE()),FALSE()),FALSE())

 

This works fine to get be to the exact day from today (i.e. 9 Months 5/15/2016), howewver I need to go back a full 9 months i.e. 5/1/2016.

 

How can I adjust my Dax Calc Columns to capture all days within my 9 month range <?>

 

9 Months:

 

Today = 2/10/2017

Try adding this calculated column to your date table.

 

Months From Today = IFERROR(DATEDIFF('Dates'[Date],NOW() , MONTH),-1)

 

This will generate a dynamic column with a number counting it's position to the current month.  Then just set a filter on your Visual, Report or Page to say [Months From Today] between 0 and 9  (or 1 and 9)

 

This will give you every day in the range you require.

I solved a similar scenario with the EOMONTH function which returns the last day of the month of a given date.

 

 

IsWithinLast9Months = IF('Dates'[Date] > EOMONTH(TODAY(),-9),true,false)

 

 

 

Hope this helps.
