Only show values for complete months

Hi, 

I have made a power bi report in which the results per month are presented compared to the same month a year earlier or the budget for that month. At the moment the month we are still in the middle of is also presented, but these values ​​are always lower as long as the month is not yet at the end. Is there a way to only display a month when it's completely over?

 

should I solve this in my measures or through filter options. what is the best approach?

I myself am thinking of a calculated column with an if statement. which checks whether the date column contains a date that falls in a month that is in the past. if so a 1 else a 0. then so I can filter on 1. I just don't know how to write this formula.

@icturion ,

 

Complete month based Today =
var _max = if( day(today()) >=15 ,eomonth(today(),-1), eomonth(today(),-2) )
return
IF(Table[datecolumn] <=_max,1,0)

@icturion ,

Complete month based Today =

var _max = if( eomonth(today(),0)=today(), Today() , eomonth(today(),-1)  )
var _min = eomonth(_max,-1)+1

return
CALCULATE(sum('Table'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Date] >= _min && 'Date'[Date] <=_max ) )

 

Hi @amitchandak ,

 

based on your example I have now created the following and it works well:

Complete month based Today =
var _max = ifeomonth(today(),0)=today(), Today() , eomonth(today(),-1) )
return
IF(Table[datecolumn] <=_max,1,0)
 
I just heard from finance that the previous month may only be available if it is at least the 15th month of the current month. How can I best process this in the above formula?

@icturion ,

 

Complete month based Today =
var _max = if( day(today()) >=15 ,eomonth(today(),-1), eomonth(today(),-2) )
return
IF(Table[datecolumn] <=_max,1,0)
