Circular relationship

Hello,

I´m creating a new Report and need to create a relationship between the Date and Customers tables to calculate de number of Customers whose registration date is equal to the selected date.

 

I can´t create this relationship because this causes a circular relationship.

 

Can you help me to solved this problem?CircularRelationship.PNG

You should be able to solve this by creating an inactive relationship between the Date and Clientes tables

2020-01 inactive rel.png

Then creating a measure with the USERELATIONSHIP function to activate this relationship for that measure.

Cliente Registrations = CALCULATE( countrows(Clientes), USERELATIONSHIP(Clientes[Fecha_Alta], Dates[Date]))

This will allow you to see other measures using the active relationship, but just for the count of client registrations to use the relationship between Clientes and Dates

 

eg.

2020-01 inactive rel result.png

Hi @Anonymous

Hi @az38 

 

Thanks for yor answer.

 

I can't set both directions on the Cabecera-Date relationship because I have different measures in the Cabecera table. Some of these measures use SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR.

Hello

 

I show you a data example on the picture with the measures. The relation between Cabecera and Clientes use the ID_CLIENTE column. The relacionship between Date and Cabecera use the column FECHA.DataExample.PNG

 

I need to calculate the number of new customers by month (second graph) and filter all report by year. Example:
