At the moment I get excel file that has sales information in, I get another request from another source but its a single date, it is NOT and CANNOT be relational to the sales data.

You could add a calculated column to your sales day by day table, like

 

SlicerCol =
IF( Sales[Data Date:] = MIN( SingleDate[DataDate] ), "The Date", "Not The Date" )

 

 

Or you can add a filter to applicable measures, like

 

Sales_TheDate = 
CALCULATE(
  SUM( Sales[Sales] ),
  KEEPFILTERS( TREATAS( VALUES( SingleDate[DataDate] ), Sales[Data Date:] ) )
)

Thank you, I am very new at this - I was googling for weeks on how to select like in SQL and just dispaly the numbers (select sales from sales where date = 3 june 23) type uery but this is great, I never ask but this was frustrating. Will do a cource soon on Power BI and the new MS Fabric.
