          Hi, Satish


          It should be something similar like below calculation:

          {Fixed datetrunc('month',[hiredate]:min(if datename('weekday',[hiredate]) = 'Sunday' then [hiredate] end))}

          If it doesn't work, pleaese provide sample workbook.

            Hi Satish,


            I attach an example of how to get it.


            I created a first sunday date as MAKEDATE(year([Hire Date]),MONTH([Hire Date]),IIF([SundayDate]==8,1,[SundayDate]))


            And SundayDate is 8-DATEPART("weekday",[Hire Date])+1


            Happy Viz!

              Interesting solution but the problem, It is that if the Hire Date is not exactly in a Sunday will return null:
