Cost Calculation Dependency

My Problem Dependency Problem


Problem seems big.


- I have a start cost&amount

- I convert it to initial cost&amount

- I have input cost&Amount from other table

- I add intial and input figures to find cumulative input

- From cumulative input and cost i calculate the unit cost during the consumption (A)

- i have a consumption amount from other table

- I use (A) * comsumtion amount in order to find "consumption cost"

- Then i calculate closing cost&amount from "cumulative input" minus "consumption cost"

- Then try to formulate the intial cost of the next month = previousmonth of consumption cost.....And say dependecy was detected


I need help

The excel file and Power Bi File is attached..


Opening amount can be calculated but opening cost not, (opening cost = closing cost of previous month which calculated from previous opening cost...


The excel file


The post that you shared is not working because the opening cost depens previous month cloinng and consumption unit cost depends on open cost

Hi @mehmet ,


The main problem should be that the calculation of the current column (closing cost&amount) depends on the value of another column (open cost&amount). Refer to the solution below, which is similar to the situation you encountered.
