## calendar list for a specified date range

Hello All,

I want to have a list of dates as my calendar so that the user would be able to click each of these ranges and the outcome would be for my bar chart to dynamically change based on the selection:

The date ranges i want are:

< 14 days - 14 days ago to present day

15 - 29 days - 29 days ago to 15 days ago

30 + days - Anything that falls into 30 days ago or older

I have a calendar table available, the table that it will be filtering on has a due_date column also - these are linked via a relationship of Calendar[date] -> wkaw[due_date]

Any help would be appreciated.Thanks

Kevin

Hi @sullynivek,

You can refer to below steps to achieve your requirement, if it suitable for your requirement.

Steps:

1. Write dax formula to create calculated column to store range tag.

```Range category =
VAR diff =
DATEDIFF ( [Date], TODAY (), DAY )
RETURN
IF (
diff <= 14,
"Less than 14 days",
IF ( diff <= 29, "15 to 29 days", "30 day or older" )
)
```

3. Use above column to create a slicer to enable the filter effect.

Notice: above filter effect also works on other related tables.

Hi @v-shex-msft,

This didn't work for me unfortunately, the graphs did pick up on the change but it would wipe out all the bars. When looking at the table it would return 14 days or less for some spurious dates i.e. 12/07/2017?

Not sure why it is doing this.

Could you share you demo with me?

hi @v-shex-msft,

It wasn't your solution that was the problem, it was my date table; for some reason it was changing the 1st 12 date entries of the month to the US format i.e. mm/dd/yyyy and the remainder of the month the format was dd/mm/yyyy?

I have recitified the date table and your solution is just perfect - thanks.

Kevin.

P.S. Wonder if you could look at another problem that i have - see it at this post:

Would be appreciated if you could help with that please - K
