Returns a table that contains a column of the dates for the year to date, in the current context.

DATESYTD(<dates> [,<year_end_date>])




A column that contains dates.


(optional) A literal string with a date that defines the year-end date. The default is December 31.

A table containing a single column of date values.


To understand more about how context affects the results of formulas, see Context in DAX Formulas.

The dates argument can be any of the following:

  • A reference to a date/time column,

  • A table expression that returns a single column of date/time values,

  • A Boolean expression that defines a single-column table of date/time values.


Constraints on Boolean expressions are described in the topic, CALCULATE Function (DAX).

The year_end_date parameter is a string literal of a date, in the same locale as the locale of the client where the workbook was created. The year portion of the date is ignored.

The following sample formula creates a measure that calculates the 'Running Total' for the Internet sales.

To see how this works, create a PivotTable and add the fields, CalendarYear and CalendarQuarter, to the Row Labels area of the PivotTable. Then add a measure named Running Total, using the formula defined in the code section, to the Values area of the PivotTable.

=CALCULATE(SUM(InternetSales_USD[SalesAmount_USD]), DATESYTD(DateTime[DateKey]))
