Fill blank values with previous value in the same column (linear increas)

Hi all,

I am quite desperate with this problem so i would like to know if you could help me. 

I have this table (Table1) : 

DateValue

01/2012

0,78330993
01/20130,80190761
01/20140,82355707
01/2015 
01/2016 
01/2017 

 

and i need to fill blank rows with the previous year value multiplied by (1+0.02). For example, for row 01/2015 it should be Value in 01/2014*(1+0.02). A linear increase applied only for the blank rows. 

The result should be: 

FechaTotal Year
domingo, 1 de enero de 20120,78330993
martes, 1 de enero de 20130,80190761
miércoles, 1 de enero de 20140,82355707
jueves, 1 de enero de 20150,84002821
viernes, 1 de enero de 20160,85682877
domingo, 1 de enero de 20170,87396535

 

All help will be appreciate. 

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Andrea.

Re: Fill blank values with previous value in the same column (linear increas)

Hi @AndreaSantest ,

These type of questions are the most fun because it allows me to really be creative 😄 Anyway, here is a solution for you. 

First I have created a ranking column based on date. The reason is that I don't know if your real dataset has patches of empty values or only a few empty rows at the end of the dataset. Either way, I need to fill it up based on the last known value with a growth factor of 1.02. Thus, a ranking will come in handy later:

Ranking = RANKX(Table1, Table1[Date], , ASC, Dense)

Next, I created a calculated column with the following DAX:

Filled = IF(Table1[Value] = BLANK(),
    VAR _curRank = Table1[Ranking]
    VAR _lastNonBlankRank = MAXX(FILTER(table1, Table1[Ranking] < _curRank && Table1[Value] <> BLANK()), Table1[Ranking])
    VAR _lastNonBlankValue = LOOKUPVALUE('Table1'[Value], Table1[Ranking], _lastNonBlankRank)
    RETURN
    _lastNonBlankValue * POWER(1.02, _curRank - _lastNonBlankRank), 
    Table1[Value])

Basically it returns the value in the [Value] column if there is one, but if there isn't we are going to do something special. First we store some variables, like current row ranking number, last ranking number that has a non-blank value in the [Value] column and the actual last non-blank value of the [Value] column. Then we return the last non-blank value * 1.02 ^ (thisrow ranking - last non blank ranking). This returns the following: (I changed the data layout to a maximum of 8 decimals so this would be easily compared to your example)

Let me know if this is clear and meets your requirements 🙂

Re: Fill blank values with previous value in the same column (linear increas)

Hi @AndreaSantest 
Yes we absolutely can! I created this measure (it will only work in a table visual with all the rows of the original table):

FilledAsMeasure = 
IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Table1[Value]) = BLANK(),
    VAR _curRank = SELECTEDVALUE(Table1[Ranking])
    VAR _lastNonBlankRank = MAXX(FILTER(ALL(table1), Table1[Ranking] < _curRank && Table1[Value] <> BLANK()), Table1[Ranking])
    VAR _lastNonBlankValue = LOOKUPVALUE('Table1'[Value], Table1[Ranking], _lastNonBlankRank)
    RETURN
    _lastNonBlankValue * POWER(1+Growth[Growth Value], _curRank - _lastNonBlankRank), 
    SELECTEDVALUE(Table1[Value]))

I created a parameter called Growth with min=0, max = 0.2 and step =0.01.

Re: Fill blank values with previous value in the same column (linear increas)

Thank you so much @JarroVGIT ! It works perfect!!

 

However, now my client ask me to have this 0.02 "variable". I mean, they want me to have a "what if" paramter that switch from 0.02 to 0.1 with a slicer that modify the calculation of the column. It is possible to have it like that? I know that columns are not "dynamic" and they can not be modifed by a parameter but maybe if i change the column to a mesure... it's possible? How can i do it? 

Thank you again 🙂
