Hi, @UrmiC ;

First you should have a calendar table ,  then create a flag measure ,apply it into filter.

1. create a calendar table.

``Table = CALENDAR(DATE(2021,1,1),TODAY())``

2.slicer date use other table and two tables don't have relationship.then create a flag measure.

``flag = IF(MAX([Date]) <MAX('slicer'[Date])&&MAX([Date])>=MAX('slicer'[Date])-7,1,0)``

3.apply the flag measure into filter.

The final output is shown below:

Simple Way: You just need to grab the date 7 days ago, and then use that to filter with a bigger than.

So say you are using the UTCNOW() function to get the time in UTC for right now. This will return something in the Datetime type.

You would then create a seperate DAX measure or a variable by doing the following:

UTCNOW() -7

This will return the timestamp exactly 7 days ago in UTC, you can then just use the {date (assume UTC)} > (UTCNOW()-7) && {date (assume UTC)} < UTCNOW()

Hi,

These should work

Total sales = sum(Data[sales])

Total sales 7 days prior = calculate([total sales],datesbetween(calendar[date],min(calendar[date])-7,min(calendar[date])-7))

The slicer should carry the date from the Calendar Table.  Select any one date in the slicer.

Please provide sanitized sample data in usable format (not as a picture - inserting it into a table would be good) and show the expected outcome.
