Circular Dependency - Simple Fix?

Hi all,

 

I am having an issue which I hope there is a simple fix for. I am trying to create two calculated columns (I cannot use measures because I need it to calculate row by row) - a sell column and a cost column.

 

When using these functions:

SELL = CALCULATE(SUM[SELL])*CALCULATE(SUM[QTY])

COST = CALCULATE(SUM[COST])*CALCULATE(SUM[QTY])

 

I keep getting a circular dependency error - I assume because I am trying to use the quantity in both columns. I tried adding an index column, but that did not solve my issue. I hope there is a simple fix to this that I just cannot find?

 

Thanks!!!

Hi @SHOOKANSON,

 

If you want to compute row by rows, then you can use SUMX.

 

SO for example in your case, you can have 

SELL = Sumx( Table, SELL*QTY)

COST=SUMX(Table, COST*QTY)

 

Please give a sample if you keep having trouble with the formulas,
