## Employee FTE calculation

Hi,

I have data similar to tables below. Fact table that I se connects to number of other dimension tables and so number of rows per each assignment id are much larger but I have simplified it to make it easy to understand my issue.

Employee table is joined to Fact table on Employee ID and Assignment Table is joined to fact table on composite key (Assignment ID + Start Date + End Date)

I am trying to get to an output as below and I am not able to calculate Employee FTE values accurately. Appreciate if you can offer any help as I am new to Power BI and struggling as I have spend few hours on this but could not get it right.

 Power BI report output Employee Name Assignment ID Assignment FTE Employee FTE A 11 1 1 B 21 0.5 0.7 B 22 0.2 0.7 C 31 0.3 0.7 C 32 0.1 0.7 C 33 0.3 0.7

Thank you,

-Raj

@gottapu how about changing the code like this?

``Employee FTE:=IF(COUNTROWS('Fact'),SUMX(ALL(Assignment[Asgn ID]),CALCULATE(MAX('Fact'[Assignment FTE]),ALL(RepGroup[Rep Group Name]),ALL('Fact'[Assignment FTE]))))``

@gottapu , Try a measure like

Employee FTE =calculate(sum(Table[Assignment FTE]), filter(allselected(Table),[Employee Name] = max([Employee Name])))

Thanks Amit for your quick reply. Unfortunately, after trying above, I am getting Employee FTE as sum of all Assignment FTE values in the fact table and hence they are way more than what I am trying to get. For Employee ID =1, I am getting Employee FTE as value 3.

Thanks

Thanks much @wdx223_Daniel. Really appreciate you taking the time to replicate our scenario. Below solution has got me very close. We are displaying Assignment ID from dimension and when we do that Employee FTE and Assignment FTE are now showing same values (Employee FTE values not rolling up). But when we show Assignment ID from fact table, Employee FTE values are rolling up correctly. In reality, we have Assignment Number in our Assignments dimension that we show in our report. Appreciate, if you can let me know how best to adjust code when we are using Assignment ID from Assignment dimension in our report.

Thank you

Thank you so much @wdx223_Daniel . I have been working on this calc for last few days and breaking my head. I am relatively new to Power BI DAX code. I have gone through Plural sight DAX videos and other DAX documentation available on web but still struggled to get to correct number. You have made my day. Thank you so much for going extra mile to help.

Thanks,

I have run into a slight problem where if I bring in additional column from another dimension, FTE values appears to be not rolling up. For example, I have Representation Group dimension that is connected to my fact on Rep group id field. For Example, Assignment IDs 21 has a representation group of 'Faculty' value and and Assignment ID 22 as a representation group of 'Clinician'. Though representation groups are at the assignment level, they are connected to Fact table using a different key (i.e Rep ID). Is there a way I can include Representation group in my report but still calculate FTE by Employee?

Output that I am looking for:

 Employee Name Assignment ID Rep Group Assignment FTE Employee FTE A 11 Faculty 1 1 B 21 Faculty 0.5 0.7 B 22 Clinician 0.2 0.7 C 31 Faculty 0.3 0.7 C 32 Clinician 0.1 0.7 C 33 MG Fcaulty 0.3 0.7

Rep Group Table:

 Rep Group ID Rep Group Name 1 Faculty 2 MG Faculty 3 Clinician

For Employee B and C, I am getting same values for Employee FTE and Assignment FTE. Apreciate any further help.

Thanks,

Thanks much @wdx223_Daniel. That does the job for me.

I just have a follow up question. If I create a measure like this it looks like it only works for coded secnario and if my users drag and drop additional fields from additional dimensions, calculation poentially displays Assignment FTE values under Employee FTE field. Is there a way we can calculate it regardless of what additional columns (from dimensions that I have not specificed in my calc) users add to thier reports?

Thanks,
