Compute difference between rows and display as sub-total

I have created the following table using the Matrix object:

row-diffs.png

 

 

I would like to compute ("Value in Use" - "Carrying Amount") for each column e.g. the yellow parts in 2013, and display that difference where the orange blocks are. Example for 2013 in first category (EU/LA) - 4,552.27 - 3,688.77 = 863,5.  the result should appear in the orange part directly under 4,552.27. This for each column.

Is this possible within the Matrix construct? Or would it be better to compute these differences in the Power Query parts as I read the data in? I currently have the data in a normal table, with each row containing either a Carrying Amount or a Value in Use.

 

 

EDIT:   here is some (space separated) test data that I have been using...

Re: Compute difference between rows and display as sub-total

Hi @nimitchell,

 

Please check below formula if it works on your side.

 

Measure:

Diff = 
IF (
    COUNTROWS ( 'Sample data' )
        = COUNTROWS (
            FILTER ( ALL ( 'Sample data' ), [CapGrad] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[CapGrad] ) )
        )
        || COUNTROWS ( 'Sample data' )
            = COUNTROWS (
                FILTER (
                    ALL ( 'Sample data' ),
                    [CapGrad] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[CapGrad] )
                        && [Year] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[Year] )
                )
            ),
    ABS (
        CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Sample data'[Value] ), 'Sample data'[Type] = "Car" )
            - CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Sample data'[Value] ), 'Sample data'[Type] = "Value" )
    ),
    SUM ( 'Sample data'[Value] )
)

Above formula only available on marking part, I haven't added any conditional to affect total column and total row.

Re: Compute difference between rows and display as sub-total

HI @nimitchell,

 

Can you please provide some sample data to test?

 

For your scenario, you should write a measure to instead the original amount column and add condition to check the subtotal row.

Sample:

SubDiff = 
IF (
    COUNTROWS ( 'Table' )
        = COUNTROWS ( FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), [Date].[Month] = MAX ( [Date].[Month] ) ) )
        || COUNTROWS ( 'Table' )
            = COUNTROWS (
                FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), [Date].[Month] = MAX ( [Date].[Month] ) && [Date].[Year] = MAX ( [Date].[Year] ) )
            ),
	ABS (
	    CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Amount] ), 'Table'[Type] = "b" )
    	    - CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Amount] ), 'Table'[Type] = "a" )
	),
    SUM ( 'Table'[Amount] )
	)

Re: Compute difference between rows and display as sub-total

 

Thank you very much for the great answer. I have attempted to adapt it to my data but still have a few issues (the table is not showing as expected, even though the measure.

 

I have included data below that has the same structure as mine - could you help me adapt your solution please?

CapGrad is the columns, so split by S/U, Mercedes, etc., whicha re in turn drilled down into the Type (like your 'a' and 'b'. The columns are years. The difference I want to compute is then the corresponding Value for a set of CapGrad and Type in one year.
If you copy and paste into excel using tab as a delimiter it works. I will try to uplaod it another way too just in case that isn't helpful.

Re: Compute difference between rows and display as sub-total

Hi @nimitchell,

 

Please check below formula if it works on your side.

 

Measure:

Diff = 
IF (
    COUNTROWS ( 'Sample data' )
        = COUNTROWS (
            FILTER ( ALL ( 'Sample data' ), [CapGrad] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[CapGrad] ) )
        )
        || COUNTROWS ( 'Sample data' )
            = COUNTROWS (
                FILTER (
                    ALL ( 'Sample data' ),
                    [CapGrad] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[CapGrad] )
                        && [Year] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[Year] )
                )
            ),
    ABS (
        CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Sample data'[Value] ), 'Sample data'[Type] = "Car" )
            - CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Sample data'[Value] ), 'Sample data'[Type] = "Value" )
    ),
    SUM ( 'Sample data'[Value] )
)

Above formula only available on marking part, I haven't added any conditional to affect total column and total row.

Re: Compute difference between rows and display as sub-total

Thanks for the adaption, but unfortunately it doesn't work for me... I don't think it can be due to my data being slightly different - the structure is identical, only the names and values are altered and I of course used my correct names when applying your measure.

 

It seems as thought the IF statement is not getting into the interesting part of computing the difference. The table still simply shows the sum of 'Car' and 'Value', not the difference. Could you maybe explain a little bit of the logic behind your solution? Perhaps I can the adapt it myself. Why do you filter in the IF condition using: `[CapGrad] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[CapGrad] )`?
CapGrad is a text column, and the MAX function says that it ignores text.

 

EDIT:

Your measure does work as desired! Thank you!  My problem was, well, me. I had a filter missing, meaning there was an extra value in Type (not just the two I had given you in my data sample). It would still be useful for my learning if you could explain a few of the steps in your solution  🙂  Thanks again!

 

p.s - I do not need the extra condition for the Totals column  🙂

Could you please explain how this solution is actually working? Perhaps with some comments in the code?

Re: Compute difference between rows and display as sub-total

Hi @nimitchell,

 

By default, matrix visual will auto summary values. Actually, my conditions also based on it.

It will check on current matrix summary result and manually filter result to apply the custom calculation on specific level.

 

 

For example:

Test 2 = 
IF (
		COUNTROWS ( 'Sample data' )
            = COUNTROWS (
                FILTER (
                    ALL ( 'Sample data' ),
                    [CapGrad] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[CapGrad] )
                        && [Year] = MAX ( 'Sample data'[Year] )
                )
            ),
			"Custom"
			,
    SUM ( 'Sample data'[Value] )
)

If your visual contians some filter on it, you should use allselected to instead the all function, it will apply on current filter.
