@Geo_Nelson Sorry, missed a paren:

``````Departure Date =
VAR __Date = MAX('Table'[Process Date])
VAR __DeptDay = MAX('Table'[Route Departure Day]
VAR __Table = ADDCOLUMNS(CALENDAR(__Date,__Date+7),"WeekdayNum",WEEKDAY([Date]) )
RETURN
MINX(FILTER(__Table,[WeekdayNum] = __DeptDay),[Date])``````

Hi @Geo_Nelson ,

I think you can try this code to create a calculated column.

``Next date = 'Table'[Process Date] + 'Table'[Route Departure Day] + 1``

Result is as below.

@Geo_Nelson Try:

``````Departure Date =
VAR __Date = MAX('Table'[Process Date])
VAR __DeptDay = MAX('Table'[Route Departure Day]
VAR __Table = ADDCOLUMNS(CALENDAR(__Date,__Date+7),"WeekdayNum",WEEKDAY([Date])
RETURN
MINX(FILTER(__Table,[WeekdayNum] = __DeptDay),[Date])``````

@Greg_Deckler I'm sure I'm doing something wrong on my end.
