Using selected date in slicer to filter dates in another table

I have two separate tables:

1. "From" date

2. "To" date

 

Both tables have identical list of dates but I would like to use both as them as separate slicers.

 

For Example, I have dates from 1/1/2019 till 20/1/2019.

 

If I selected 10/1/2019 in the "From" date slicer, I would like the "To" date slicer to only show the dates after 10/1/2019, which is the selected value in the "from" date slicer.

 

I have been searching the net for answers for a few days now and I hope someone can help me with this!

Hi @bcng,

Based on my test, you could refer to below steps:

Create a measure:

Measure = IF(CALCULATE(MAX('To'[Date]))>=SELECTEDVALUE('From'[Date]),1,0)

Set the visual slicer:

Result:

1.PNG

But the measure could not be applied it in the slicer, I suggest you use the measure in visual.

So, typically the way you do that is to disconnect your slicers from everything using Edit Interactions. Then you create a measure that grabs the MAX or SELECTEDVALUE of each slicer and performs a calculation which returns a value if it is within that range or BLANK() or 0 otherwise and that essentially becomes your filter.

 

If that doesn't help, need more information to be more specific. Please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

Hi Greg,

 

I tried using this measure:

Measure = IF('To Date'[Current Historical]>=VALUES('From Date'[Current Historical]),'To Date'[Current Historical],BLANK())
 
but I am getting this error:
A single value for column 'Current Historical' in table 'To Date' cannot be determined. This can happen when a measure formula refers to a column that contains many values without specifying an aggregation such as min, max, count, or sum to get a single result.
 
Can't seem to figure out how to work around this error.
 
I have already created a relationship between the two columns
