## Add calculated Row in table

Hallo,

i import 3 tables from SP to help me create a KPI graph

Can i add a row at the table in BI to calculate (division) of 2 rows above? (Last Row)

Example

 Own Staff Contractor 157 171 141 119 0.898 0.696

Hi, @marial16

You could create measures and change the Total field to the division you want.

Like this:

``````_Own Staff =
IF(
ISINSCOPE('Table'[Index]),SUM('Table'[Own Staff ]),
DIVIDE(
CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Own Staff ]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index]=MAX('Table'[Index]))),
CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Own Staff ]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index]=MAXX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index]<MAX('Table'[Index])),[Index])))
)
)``````

Result:

Hi, @marial16

This does not work when there are more rows in the table, and new rows cannot be added row by row. This is not the way power bi works. You can create a measure to display it next to it. If you can accept the display by row, you can turn on show value on the row.

Yes, you can use an Excel file that already contains calculations, and you can choose to import the calculations of the model in the import feature.

I finally managed to create the calculated row, however i was wondering if this solution would work if i had more rows in the same table or is it a best practice to create another table?

example :

 Own Staff Contractors 157 171 141 119 0.898 0.696 284 163 1.809 0.953

where 1.809 is the result of 284 / 157

And a last question of mine would be if i can use an excel file (calculations included) in Power BI without having to create all those measures.

I had decided to organise the data in SharePoint Lists. However i am not sure if it is the best practice.

Thank you

Ok i manged to add an index column, but i am getting an error when i check the measures and try to create the table visualization:

"The function SUM cannot work with values of type string"

In the Sharepoint list the column type is number.

What am i missing?

Hi, @marial16

I am adding an index column in Power Query. If the column type is not numeric, then you can change the type to numeric in PowerQuery or on the desktop. Then the SUM function will work properly.

Hope this helps.

Hallo, and thank you for your response and example given,

i was trying to implement this and i am not sure how you created the index.

it is not a measure i see.

Ideally you should do this with a matrix visual and using measures (using show measures on rows under "Values" in the formatting pane), which will of course make the data dynamic.

In doing so, you are also helping me. Thank you!

@marial16 , if you want to add in visual table I doubt you can do that

The workaround is to create data tables and append them. But they will not take slicer values
