Difference between rows in direct query

Hi All,

 

I wanted to calculate the difference between the rows. Is it possible in direct query using power query or calculated column or measure? Please help. See below pic.

Hi Koluman

 

Basically you can create 2 index columns and then self-join the columns to get the "previous row" value

then you just subtect them

Re: Difference between rows in direct query

Hello,

 

Your solution doesn't work in direct query. It will work in import mode. Is there any other method? @dearwatson
