# Power BI DAX Min Date Minus

In this Microsoft Power Bi tutorial, we will learn how to calculate Power BI Dax Min Date minus a particular period in Power BI.

In a recent Power Bi project, I had to calculate the minimum date values using the Power BI Min function, Also covered below topics:

1. Power BI DAX min date minus 1 day
2. Power BI DAX min date minus 1 year
3. Power BI DAX min date minus 1 month
4. Power BI DAX min date minus days
5. Power BI DAX min date minus 6 months

## Power BI DAX min date minus 1 day

Let us see how we can calculate the minimum date minus 1 day using the Power Bi Min function.

In this example, we will find the minimum date value of the existing car’s table date column later we will minus 1 day from the min date value.

• Open the Power Bi desktop, and load the data into the desktop. Once the data has been loaded, select the new measure option from the ribbon under the Home tab and apply the below-mentioned formula to find the minimum date value.
``MinDate = MIN(Cars[Released Date])``

Where,

1. MinDate= New Measure name
2. Released Date = Existing column name
3. Cars = Table Name
• Now in the report section, select the Table visual and Card Visualfrom the visualization
• In the Table Visual, drag and drop the Car Name, Car Model, and Released date fields from the field pane.
• In the Card Visual, drag and drop the created measure value in it.
• In the below screenshot, we can see that the card visually displays the minimum date value as ( 12/17/2020).

Now, in the same way, select the new measure option from the ribbon under the Home tab and apply the below-mentioned formula to find the minimum date value minus 1 day.

``MinDate = MIN(Cars[Released Date])-1``

Where,

1. MinDate= New Measure name
2. Cars = Table Name
3. Released Date = Existing column name
• Now in the report section, select the Table visual and Card Visualfrom the visualization
• In the Table Visual, drag and drop the Car Name, Car Model, and Released date fields from the field pane.
• In the Card Visual, drag and drop the created measure value in it.
• In the below screenshot, we can see that the new card visually displays the expected value as (12/16/2020) whereas, the minimum value is ( 12/17/2020).

This is how to calculate the minimum date minus 1 day using the Power Bi Min function.
