Slicer doesn‘t work for my measure

I have a  “Date” table (each day in 2022) and "employ" table (employee number, dept, onboard date, turnover date).

I would like to calculate the active employee number in 2022 each month.

so here I create a measure as below but find the number does not change with dept Slicer

 

Active employee= VAR date_=MAX('Date'[date])

Return

Calculate(

       countrows('employ'),

       FILTER(

              ALL(’employ'),

              'employe'[onboard date]<=date_&&('employe'[turnover date]>date_||'employe'[turnover date]=BLANK())

        )

)

 

 

Really appreciate any response, thank you.

Hi  @Redpandas ,

As checked the formula of your measure, it applied ALL function. And it returns all the rows in a table, or all the values in a column, ignoring any filters that might have been applied. Please update the formula of the measure as below and check if it can get the correct result...

Active employee =
VAR date_ =
    MAX ( 'Date'[date] )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        COUNTROWS ( 'employ' ),
        FILTER (
            ALLSELECTED ( 'employ' ),
            'employe'[onboard date] <= date_
                && (
                    'employe'[turnover date] > date_
                        || 'employe'[turnover date] = BLANK ()
                )
        )
    )

 

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in your table 'employ' (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.

Thank you Rena for giving me hint of replacing ALL(’employ'). And I tried Keepfilter and worked. ALLSELECTED ( 'employ' ) work for slicers but doesn‘t know for table with separated “Dept”.

Try this instead:

 

Active employee= VAR date_=MAX('Date'[date])

Return

Calculate(

       countrows('employ'),

       'employe'[onboard date]<=date_&&('employe'[turnover date]>date_||'employe'[turnover date]=BLANK())

)
