# Calculate total orders in timeframe

Hello everyone!

Beacause I can’t find any video’s and content about TIME, I have the following question. I would like to calculate nr of total orders in a “day” with a timeframe of: 21.00 - 20.59 (24 hours). So the days have a overlapping character. The image underneath will explain my question further.

Here I have the pbix file. I hope some could help. Any help is welcome!

Hello @NickvanDijk,

Have a look at Problem of the Week #10 - Dealing with time Periods. There are different approaches that can help you

Best regards,

I created a new disconnected Time Table Then I added the following measures:

`StartDateTime = MIN('Date'[Date]) + DIVIDE( MIN('Time Table'[Hour]), 24,0) + 21/24`

`EndDateTime = MAX('Date'[Date]) + DIVIDE( MIN('Time Table'[Hour]), 24,0) + 21/24`

`Total Orders = COUNT('Order Table'[Order Nr])`

``````Total Orders 2 =
VAR _StartDateTime= [StartDateTime]
VAR _EndDateTime = [EndDateTime]
RETURN
CALCULATE([Total Orders],
FILTER('Order Table',
'Order Table'[Date Time Order]>= _StartDateTime
&&
MIN('Order Table'[Date Time Order])< _EndDateTime))
``````

I marked as Date Table your Date table

And I get to the requested result. As you can see in the image below I calculate the number of orders between 5/19/2021 after 21h & 5/20/21 before 21h

Best regards,
Alex

Hi Nick,
I got one solution, might not be an ideal one:

1.First, create a column in the Orders table. As this is a fact table, it is not recommended when rows reach certain amounts.
Calibrated Order Date = IF(and(Orders[Order Date]=Orders[Order Date], Orders[Order Time]>=TIMEVALUE(“21:00”)), Orders[Order Date]+1,Orders[Order Date])

1. Create an inactive relationship between Dates[Date] and Orders[Calibrated Order Date]. 2. Change Total Orders formula to the following:
Total Orders =
CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Orders), USERELATIONSHIP(Dates[Date],Orders[Calibrated Order Date]))

The pbix file is attached:
