Power BI — WTD Questions— Time Intelligence 4–5

In this blog, we will try to answer, 10 Most Frequently Asked Questions on Week Till Date(WTD) in Power BI.


WTD : Week Till Date
LWTD : Last Week Till Date


For any Time Intelligence, you must have a date table. Please refer the below links to create one date table.

Date = CALENDAR(date(2015,03,01),Date(2021,02,28)) //calendar
Week Start date = 'Date'[Date] + -1*WEEKDAY('Date'[Date],2)+1
Week End date = 'Date'[Date] + 7 –1*WEEKDAY('Date'[Date],2)
Week Number = WEEKNUM([Date],2)
Week = if('Date'[Week Number]<10,'Date'[Year]*10 & 'Date'[Week Number],'Date'[Year]&'Date'[Week Number])
Week Rank = RANKX(all('Date'),'Date'[Week Start date],,ASC,Dense)
Week name = [Week Start date] & " to "& [Week End date]
Weekday = WEEKDAY([Date],2)
WeekDay Name = FORMAT([Date],"ddd")
Year = YEAR('Date'[Date])
This Week = CALCULATE([Sales], FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])))Last Week = CALCULATE([Sales], FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])-1))WTD = CALCULATE([Sales], FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank]) && 'Date'[Weekday] <=max('Date'[Weekday])))LWTD = CALCULATE([Sales], FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=(max('Date'[Week Rank]) -1) && 'Date'[Weekday] <=max('Date'[Weekday])))
Same Week Day Last year =CALCULATE([Sales], dateadd('Date'[Date],-364,Day))
Same Week Day Last Week = CALCULATE([Sales], dateadd(‘Date’[Date],-7,Day))
Last 4 week Sales = CALCULATE([Sales],FILTER(all('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]>=min('Date'[Week Rank])-4 && 'Date'[Week Rank]<=max('Date'[Week Rank])))Last 6 week Sales = CALCULATE([Sales],FILTER(all('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]>=min('Date'[Week Rank])-6 && 'Date'[Week Rank]<=max('Date'[Week Rank])))
Last year same Week = CALCULATE([Sales], FILTER(ALL(‘Date’),’Date’[Week Rank]=(max(‘Date’[Week Rank]) -52)))Last year Week = CALCULATE([Sales], FILTER(ALL(‘Date’),’Date’[Year]=(max(‘Date’[Year]) -1) && ‘Date’[Week Number]=(max(‘Date’[Week Number])) ))
LYWTD = CALCULATE([Sales], FILTER(ALL(‘Date’),’Date’[Week Rank]=(max(‘Date’[Week Rank]) -52) && ‘Date’[Weekday] <=max(‘Date’[Weekday]))) LYWTD Year = CALCULATE([Sales], FILTER(ALL(‘Date’),’Date’[Year]=(max(‘Date’[Year]) -1) && ‘Date’[Week Number]=(max(‘Date’[Week Number])) && ‘Date’[Weekday] <=max(‘Date’[Weekday])))
Week to Date = var _st = date(left([Week],4),1,1)
var _week = right([Week],2)*1
Return _st+((_week-1)*7) -WEEKDAY(_st,2)+1
