Past 30 days calculation

Hello, 

 

I am trying to calculate hours worked in the past 30 days. The formula was working and pulling the correct numbers until a new month started. Now, it won't pull in any values. Here is the equation I am using: 

 

Hours Worked Past 30 days =
Calculate( sum('MS TimeCard'[Hours]), DATESINPERIOD('MS TimeCard'[Work Date], TODAY(), -30, DAY))
 
I am needing this to always give me a rolling 30 days of hours worked, even when we change to a new month. Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions? 
 
Thank you!

Hi @Anonymous,

If you share some dummy data to test, it will help to test and modify your formula:

In addition, you can also take a look at Greg_Deckler's blog of use date function to manually define the calculation range instead of time intelligence functions:

You should be able to do this like the following:

 

Hours Worked Past 30 days =
  SUMX(FILTER('MS TimeCard',[Work Date] <= TODAY() & [Work Date] >= TODAY() - 30),'MS TimeCard'[Hours])
