## month dax

Hello!

First, I wish to apologize for my English.

I am new to power bi and I would like some help on a DAX function.

In my file I have two columns, a column ("needs") with the quantities of the needs and another column date ("date of need") which shows me the date for which I need them.

I am looking for a function dax, which gives me the needs M + 1, M + 2, M + 3 ... according to today compared to my two columns.

I hope my question is understandable

Hi @Anonymous

calculated column is static, it doesn't change through dates.

So i'm afraid it is impossible as you expected.

`month dax = IF(DATEDIFF(TODAY(),MAX('Table'[date]),MONTH)>=1,FORMAT([today],"mmmm")&" M"&"+"&DATEDIFF(TODAY(),MAX('Table'[date]),MONTH))`

Hi @Anonymous

Which output would you like?

I create a measure

`month dax = IF(DATEDIFF(TODAY(),MAX('Table'[date]),MONTH)>=1,"M"&"+"&DATEDIFF(TODAY(),MAX('Table'[date]),MONTH))`

Hello @

That is exactly what I wanted, but would it be possible to add the months in column ? ( to create a new column column for later)

Here is the current example that I have :

I want to create a column that meets all needs per month (M + 1 N, M + 1 N + 1, ...)

Here is an example of what I would like:

is it possible ?

Thanks !!

Hi,

You would need to use the Function Month() to get the Month for the Date. Add this as a new column in the Table. Once this is done, You will need to Unpivot the Table. You could do this by Edit Queries -> Select the Column of the Table that You want to Unpivot -> Transform -> Unpivot Columns.

Hello Mvignesh53,

I tried your solution, I just have a little problem :

when I unpivot the column month [month()] I can not get the desired result.

I want the months in columns, the results of these columns show me the needs by month, and by article code, (I cannot display the item codes in the capture, because they are confidential)
