3 SAME calculations, 3 DIFFERENT results / mixing measures, variables and calculated table

Hello PowerBI Desktop community,

I am trying to calculate a DSO KPI by exhaustion method without using a massive CROSSJOIN... (and avoid having a 20 millions rows table...)

Among all the steps I have, I am having trouble at a specific one. I have the feeling I am using the same calculation but actually I am having 3 different results... : 

  • var_1 => variable calculated from a SUMMARIZE
  • var_2 => variable calculated from a simple CALCULATE
  • var_3 => measure calculated from a CALCULATEDTABLE and SUMMMARIZE

My expected and the right result is var_2Unfortunately to go furher into the calculation I would like to have var_1 or var_3.

Please find the .pbix here:

Hope it will be enough to explain my issue. If  not, don't hesitate to ask for more questions....

Thank you in advance for all your help.

Re: 3 SAME calculations, 3 DIFFERENT results / mixing measures, variables and calculated table

there are actually quite different calculations, so the differences are expected

the model seems a bit chaotic what exactly do you want to achive here?


values in from REV summed in EUR, based on a exchange rate from TAUX? would having a Revenue column in EUR solve the problem? it may be easier to achive in the Query Editor, as you can do joins on multiple columns there

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!
