The requirement is to restrict the direct query table rows based on Start and End Date calendar inputs as it is a huge transaction table.
Created 2 Calendar tables using DAX :
Start Date - Calendar(date(2012,1,1),TODAY ())
End Date - Calendar(date(2012,1,1),TODAY ())
Bounded to variables
However, the users need the flexibility to select the range using Calendar Date picker slicer. Calendar option is disabled for the columns bound to parameters.
I also tried to create a date table Range that will be used for selecting the range.
I created another table that only holds MIN and MAX dates
CALENDAR( MIN(Range[Date]), MAX(Range[Date]))
but MIN and MAX values are showing the range based on all records instead of selected slicer date range.
Is it possible to create columns (not measure as it cannot be linked with variable) that holds min and max date that can be used to initialize a variable?
It seems you are using the Dynamic M query parameter feature. Please refer to the following document to check if your settings have hit one or multiple limitations or unsupported scenarios when using this feature.

At present it seems your table names have hit below limitation:

I confirm there is no space in the table name.
Start_date and End_date are 2 calendar DAX tables and date columns are linked to parameters. But I want to use 1 calendar input slicer to selecf dates between and pass the range as parameter, is it possible?
I'm afraid this is not supported as it would hit another limitation:
In a date slicer, it only has one date field, which cannot be bound to two paramters.
Is there any other workaround? I also tried to create a calculated column based on date selection i.e. FIRSTDATE() and LASTDATE() and linked it with variable but had no luck, would you know if I can create a date_table2 that will hold MAX and MIN dates of date_Table1 , when a date range is selected in date_Table1, table2 Max and Min columns will be filtered and hold the start and end range values?
Please help and happy to provide sample data.
