Unable to fetch the selected date in Slicer

Hi All,
I need to fetch the "Start Date" in the slicer, to calculate the "End Date" of the slicer. (which should be the date of 3 months from the "Start Date". I will be using the DateAdd function for that.) Also, "End Date " is essential to calculate using that date. 

Here I have highlighted the start date of the slicer which I need to be extracted.

I have used below mentioned DAX to pull, but no luck with that. I'll be grateful If someone can give me a helping hand with this.

 

Date Selected =
CALCULATE ( MIN ( INFO_TABLE[START_DATE] ) )

 

Thanks

To get the "Start Date" from the slicer in PowerBI, you can use the following DAX expression:

Start Date = MIN(INFO_TABLE[START_DATE])

This expression will give you the minimum date selected in the slicer for the "Start Date" column in the INFO_TABLE.

To calculate the "End Date" using the "Start Date", you can use the DateAdd function as follows:

End Date = DateAdd(Start Date, 3, "Month")

This will give you the date that is 3 months from the selected "Start Date".

Hi @jaweher899 

I have used that method to fetch the "Start Date". But still, the result is similar to the previous one.

Btw, the "End Date" calculation works fine. Thank you very much for that.
