# countifs in DAX Filter by 3 dates

• ### Question

• HI All'

In excel I can count projects with filter of start date,  projects  before the end date and date of current cell or selected cell value as reference.

How can I do this in Dax?  Formula : "=COUNTIFS(\$B\$2:\$B\$16,"<"&E2,C2:C16,E2)"

please see data for reference

 A B C D E F G proj 1 5-May-19 2-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 9 proj 2 6-May-19 3-Aug-19 proj 3 7-May-19 4-Aug-19 proj 4 8-May-19 8-May-19 proj 5 9-May-19 2-Aug-19 proj 6 2-Jun-19 2-Aug-19 proj 7 3-Jun-19 2-Aug-19 proj 8 4-Jun-19 2-Aug-19 proj 9 5-Jun-19 2-Aug-19 proj 10 9-Jul-19 2-Aug-19 proj 11 10-Jul-19 2-Aug-19 proj 12 11-Jul-19 2-Aug-19 proj 13 2-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 proj 14 2-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 proj 15 2-Aug-19 3-Aug-19

• Hi Herbert,

thanks for reply on this. but that is not giving me the result that i need. maybe i didn't explain my self clearly. Please allow me to clarify.

if Date_B current row value is Aug 2, 2019, then filter the Date_A before Aug 2, then filter Date_B for Aug 2, 2019.

please see cells attached that i replicate in excel countifs. really appreciate the help.

 Criteria Date on Current Row Result Formula in Countifs Date_A Date_B 2-Aug-19 15 "=COUNTIFS(AT3:AT50,"<"&AT3,AU3:AU50,AT1)" 31-Jul-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19 1-Aug-19 2-Aug-19

• Your second post obfuscates your request even more.
Share a file with all the possible combinations of all three dates,
the Countifs() formulas for each combination, and the desired numbers.
My example was not designed to solve your specific data or relationship,
but to get the same results of an arbitrary Countifs() function in PowerPivot.

• Hello, sorry to have confused you. I have tried uploading file but the forum requires my account to be verified. I guess it may be a few days after my request is granted.

if I may still try to ask for help:

my data model has 2 dates columns (project start date, DATEA and status date, DATEB). I have a dates table too.

In pivot table i would like to be able to pull out the counts of occurrence of status dates DATEA when a project start date DATEB is before the status date DATEA.

Hence in excel formula there is a static cell where i get the criteria

Formula: "=COUNTIFS(Table1[DateA],"<"&F1,Table1[DateB],F1)

DATEB criteria : 08/21/1

Result Count =6

in DAX i would need the criteria to be the row dates of Date B

1. I asked for your data, not a copy of mine.
2. Your Countifs() formula alternates between Table refs and Cell refs.
COUNTIFS(Table1[DateA],"<"&Table1[@DataC],Table1[DateB],Table1[@DataC])
would be more self-consistent.
3. Once you invoke PowerPivot, all cell references like F1 (or \$F\$1), cease to exist.
TableX[DataC] would be a valid reference in the right context.
4. My PivotTables are for a more general case, and can be reduced to a single reference.
5. "Building Data Models with PowerPivot" by Ferrari and Russo is a good primer.
6. No Mas.
