Custom Count from a date range

 

Hello Folks,

 

Merry X'mas & Happy New year.

 

I have a table where we have two date columns i.e. "from Date" and a "to date" column. How do I create a DAX measure or query to get count of vessel(vessel_name) for a month that is falling in that range.

 

For example:  Vessel 1 will be part of all results where the selected date range falls between, 9/29/2015 & 4/29/2017. If a user selects for example, may '17, vessel 1 will not be part of that count. Please assist as this is causing we need to make lot of analysis based on information from a date range.

Hi @bikram_laishram,

 

Did you try out my solution? It should work. You need a time line slicer from the Store. Please check the file here. (don't create relationship between two tables).

Hi @bikram_laishram,

 

The final result isn't clear. Maybe you can try it like this. You can check it out in this file in which I create two possible result.

1. A date table without relationship to other table.

Calendar = CALENDARAUTO()

2. Create a measure.

 

Result =
CALCULATE (
    COUNT ( 'Table1'[Vessel_Name] ),
    FILTER (
        'Table1',
        'Table1'[Primary_Manager_Valid_From] <= MIN ( 'Calendar'[Date] )
            && 'Table1'[Primary_Manager_Valid_To] >= MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] )
    )
)

Hi,

 

Merry Xmas Buddy. Thank you for the prompt response. The measure is pretty good but not useful in my scenario, where I need for the number of active vessels for each primary manager or vessel type. For example

 Vessel 28Type 1Company 41-Apr-171-Nov-17
 Vessel 29Type 2Company 11-May-171-Nov-17

 

All the above vessels are available in May 2017. Vessel 1 - 15 are valid upto 6th March 2017, hence cannot be part of the count. Vessel 30 is valide from 1- Jun 2017 and hence can not be part of the count. So the count will be as follows for the month of May 2017

 

Primary ManagerCount
Company 14
Company 23
Company 33
Company 44

 

Count of active vessels as per Vessel Type for May 2017 will be as follows

Vessel TypeCount
Type 15
Type 25
Type 34

 

This will realy help in a lot of calculations for us. 

 

Thanks in Advance

Hi Dale, 

 

At the cost of soudning like an village idiot, I am sorry I had added a relationship between the two tables and hence was not able to achieve the desired result. As soon as I deleted the relationship it worked like a breeze. 

 

Hope you didn't have to spend too much time on this. 

 

Thank you once again.

 

Merry XMas once again and have a great year ahead

 

Regards

 

Bikram

Hi Bikram,

 

My pleasure. It's because the relationship will filter down the records that we don't create a relationship. I'm glad you can get it work. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

 

Best Regards,

Dale

Hi Dale,
@v-jiascu-msft
I have one more table(Job order) in the same report which has a date column and three other columns, which contain ID (foreign keys). I need to have a distinct count of these ids to calculate a frequency based on the same slicer selection. Now the vessel table and job order tables are linked to get a count of breakdown jobs and planed jobs. Since I can not have any relationship between the vessel table and calendar, do you think it will be possible to still get a unique count using the calendar table

Best regards,

Bikram

Hi @bikram_laishram,

 

Keep the date in the filter namely "slicer". So, if you select date range the values will automatically show under that date range only.

 

Use the below measure to calculate the count,

 

Measure Count = CALCULATE(COUNT(vessel(vessel_name)), ALLEXCEPT(vessel,vessel(vessel_name)))

 

Hope this works for you 🙂

 

Regards,

Mehbub
