Normal Distribution Curve



I created normal distribution curve from Joseph Romero videos but the values don't change if I try to change the date.

Below are the formulas I used.


Please let me know how I can filter with date values


f(x) =
 EXP((VALUES('Normal Distribution'[X])-[Mean new])^2/(2*[STDEV new]^2)*-1)/(SQRT(2*PI())*[STDEV new])
Normal Distribution =
VAR MinValue = Floor([-2 sigma new],1)
VAR MaxValue = CEILING([+2 sigma new],1)
Z = ('Normal Distribution'[X]-[Mean new]/[STDEV new])

@Anonymous Can you post sample data or PBIX link? Not quite sure about your use of CALENDAR there. I also don't like VALUES.

@ me in replies or I'll lose your thread!!!

@Greg_Deckler  Here's the sample data. I used this table to calculate mean and standard deviation.

I want to use run time dates to filter the normal distribution curve.

Hi @Anonymous ,


You may use measure instead of calculated column to create the formula. You couldn't have a calculated column interact with a slicer since columns are only calculated at data load/refresh.
