Need help getting total of a field over the last 6 months into a column on the same table

I am trying to get the total value of a field 'Closed Today' which is a count of records closed that day off all the records in a table over the past 6 months, and add the total into a new column, on each record.


01/11 total of 5
02/11 total 6 (as one is closed on the 02/11)

then six months after this date the total would be 1 as the first 5 are outside of the 6 months.


I have both the created on date, and the date 6 months before the created on available to me as fields.

Hi @GRedhead 


Sorry I'm a little confused about your expected result. Where does the column you want to add to? A calculated column or a column in a table visual? And what are the start dates of each 6 months period? Are these dates fixed or rolling? Can you please provide some sample data and expected result to make it more clear? Thanks very much.


Best Regards,

@GRedhead , Create a date table and join the date of date table with create date and close date and there will be active inactive relation, Use userelation to choose the join

Refer :



For the last 6 months use a formaul like this. use userelation as per need

Rolling 6 = CALCULATE(sum(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date],ENDOFMONTH(Sales[Sales Date]),-6,MONTH))
Rolling 6 = CALCULATE(sum(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],MAX(Sales[Sales Date]),-6,MONTH))
Rolling 6 = CALCULATE(sum(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],MAX('Date'[Date ]),-6,MONTH))


To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.
