Return lowest date across two tables


New Member
Hello- I am new to Power BI & DAX. I am struggling to work out how to return lowest date across two tables.
I want the following rules applied
If deceased date blank then end date
If deceased date before end date- deceased date
All else end date

Format Looks like Below

I know how to do it through Power Query to get you up and running but someone will have a better answer through DAX.

Merge your queries on member id and expand the deceased date. Create an if formula in power query to get a new column with your answer.

Assuming you want the column in the Membership Table...
[Revised End Date] =VAR DeceaseDate =
        MAX ( 'Member Table'[Deceased Date] ),
        FILTER (
            'Member Table',
            'Member Table'[Member ID] = 'Membership Table'[Member ID]
    IF (
        ISBLANK ( DeceaseDate ),
        'Membership Table'[End Date],
        IF (
            'Membership Table'[End Date] - DeceaseDate > 0,
            'Membership Table'[End Date]
