Show upcoming birthdays



I have a problem finding employees' upcoming birthdays. 


I need to create DAX as below:

  1. How can I convert the date column to the DD-MMM format only?
  2. How can I sort the date with date and month only (without year) in visual? Only sort with date & month as I don't have the exact year of birth of each employee so I have updated the year as 21.
  3. Birthdays in 10 days  (I need to find birthdays from today to today+10 days)
  4. Birthdays in 11-20 days  (I need to find birthdays from today to between 11-20 days)
  5. Birthdays in 1 month (I need to find anniversaries from today to today+30 days)
  6. Birthdays in 3 months (I need to find anniversaries from today to today+90 days)


I have attached the sample PBIX here. Click here

try this version. 

I created a table of unique values but created a value for month and day that could be sorted (dob2). 

I sorted the primary dob value by dob2 in the new table. 

set a relationship between the two tables on dob. 

replaced the dob from customer in the visual with the dob from the new table.

sorted the visual on dob.

if you create a second table with two columns (dd-mm & mm-dd),  set a relationship between that and your name table where the dd-mm column resides.  Then you can sort the dd-mm column in the name table by the mm-dd column in the new table.  Do this in the calculated field editor.


@bsheffer - I tried doing it but it didn't work.
