I have a traditional sales entries table with balances, due dates etc.

I want to calculate the total balance due between a given start start (e.g 1900) and the last day of the current month.

I know I could use the dates between function like below, however I would need to alter the range every month.

 DATESBETWEEN(DateTime[DateKey],  
    DATE(2007,6,1),  
    DATE(2007,8,31)  
  ))  

How would I change the end date (bold) so that it always refers to the last day of the current month.

Hasn't worked for me but I may not be using the corrent syntax

Could you rewrite the formula below.

=CALCULATE('CLE with remaining balances'[Sum of Rem. Amount],DATESBETWEEN('CLE with remaining balances'[Due Date],date(2000,01,01),DATE(2016,09,30)))
