Hi, @Akbera1

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

Table:

You may create a calculated column or a measure as below.

``````Calculated column:
Result Column =
IF(
[Date1]=[Date2],
[Another Date],
var _diff1 = ABS(TODAY()-[Date1])
var _diff2 = ABS(TODAY()-[Date2])
return
IF(
MIN(_diff1,_diff2)=_diff1,
[Date1],
[Date2]
)
)

Measure:
Result Measure =
var _date1 = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Date1])
var _date2 = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Date2])
return
IF(
_date1=_date2,
SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Another Date]),
var _diff1 = ABS(TODAY()-_date1)
var _diff2 = ABS(TODAY()-_date2)
return
IF(
MIN(_diff1,_diff2)=_diff1,
_date1,
_date2
)
)``````

Hi @Akbera1

try

``````Column =
var _d1 = today() - Table[Date1]
var _d2 = today() - Table[Date2]
RETURN
SWITCH(TRUE(),
_d1 = _d2, Table[Date3],
ABS(_d1) <= ABS(_d2), Table[Date1],
Table[Date2]
)``````
