## Subtraction with a text and date condition

HI,

I have a query on a calculation where i want to find all expenses from a column A where the values are labelled "#Authorised" and where those string values with "#Authorised" resource are within the next 3 months from a date column within the table.

So far my calculation on creating the measure is like below

Authorised = CALCULATE([#Authorised], FILTER(Table, [#Authorised]>=TODAY()&&[#Authorised]<= EOMONTH(TODAY(),3)))

It gives me blank values. I don't know if this DAX is correct or not.

Please provide some help on this.
Thanks

Hi,

Create a Calendar Table.  Create a relationship from the Date column of your data table to the Date column of the Calendar Table.  Write these measures

``Sumexpenses = sum(Table[Expenses]``
``Measure for Authorsid = calculate([Sumexpense], Filter(Table, containsstring(Table[Resource], "#Authorised")``
``Measure  calculate([measure for authorsid],datesbetween(calendar[date],today(),eomonth([today(),3)))``

Hope this helps.

pls try this

``````Measure for Authorsid = calculate(Table[Sumexpense],
Filter(ALL(Table), containsstring(Table[Resource], "#Authorised"))

Authorised =
CALCULATE([#Authorised],
KEEPFILTERS(FILTER(ALL(Table),
[#Authorised]>=TODAY()&&[#Authorised]<= EOMONTH(TODAY(),3)))
)``````

Hi Ahmedx,

Thanks for your reply. However, this calculation is still giving me the total of all the values without filtering by date e.g it doesn't filter from Today till the end of March and give me the total for this duration. So, filtering doesn't take place anywhere. When i put this measure in the table visual along with the date column, it gives the same grand total amount for each individual date.

Hi Ritaf1983,

 Date Resource Expenses 24/03/2024 #Authorised Milan \$280.33 15/02/2024 #Unauthorised Utopia \$390 12/01/2024 #Authorised Burma \$101.20 08/12/2022 #Authorised Milan \$20.20 09/12/2023 Pangong \$1000.80 18/12/2023 #Comet \$550 01/01/2023 #Authorised \$490.51 01/01/2024 #Unauthorised Belgium \$280.33

e.g:-

Sumexpenses = calculate(sum(Table[Expenses])

Measure for Authorsid = calculate(Table[Sumexpense], Filter(Table, containsstring(Table[Resource], "#Authorised"

Now i would be interested in the calculating only the ones which have the string value #Authorised from Resource column and which are within the next 3 months from today within the table e.g it is 16/12/2023 today, it should calculate it from today till the end of March 2024 for which i tried to use following meaure, but doesn't seem to work.

Authorised = CALCULATE([#Authorised], FILTER(Table, [#Authorised]>=TODAY()&&[#Authorised]<= EOMONTH(TODAY(),3)))

Thanks

Hi Ashish,

Thanks for your response. I created the calendar table and tried to use your calculations, this calculation is still giving me the total of all the values without filtering by date e.g it doesn't filter from Today till the end of March and give me the total for this duration. So, filtering doesn't take place anywhere on this either.

I can help further only when i get the file.  Write my measures in that file and show the problem clearly.  Share the download link of the file.
