Monthly Cutoff date

I am attempting to create a query that uses calendar dates to include all items that fall on my "cutoff" date to happen each month.  The Cutt off date is the 25th of each month. If my date is Jan. 15, it should fall under Month of Jan, but if it's Jan. 26, it should be on Feb. on so on also for December that should include all items from Nov. 26 until Dec. 31.

i have a table that has a date, i wanted to add a column month for each item that falls on that cutoff.

I am stuck creating a conditional column that will set the Cutoff date correctly if the dates fall on 25th of the month.

Any ideas?

 item name Date Include in Month item1 1/15/2021 Jan. 1, 2021 item2 11/26/2021 Dec. 1, 2021

I would approach this in Power Query

Create a custom column in your table and something similar replacing the Date column with your date column name

``````if Date.Day([Date]) >= 26 and Date.Month([Date]) >= 11 and
Date.Day([Date]) <= 31 and Date.Month([Date]) <= 12 then #date(Date.Year([Date]), 12, 1) else

if Date.Day([Date]) >= 26  then Date.StartOfMonth(Date.AddMonths([Date], +1))
else  Date.StartOfMonth([Date])``````

If you are then using a Date Table and want to make calculations on the the Cut off, create either a one to many relationship with the new Cutoff date column or create the same relationship and have it set as in active relationship. When creating measures, use USERELATIONSHIP to activate the relationship

Hope this helps

You can do the following:

``if Date.Day([Date])<25 then #date(Date.Year([Date]),Date.Month([Date]),1) else if Date.Month([Date])=12 then #date(Date.Year([Date]),Date.Month([Date]),1) else #date(Date.Year([Date]),Date.Month([Date])+1,1)``
