Get % of increment for each item

Hello,

I'm having problems showing the monthly % change for my dataset. I've done it with a set that has just one category of values, but I can't do it when there are multiple categories, like this:

DateCategoryValue
Jan 20Meat250
Jan 20Wheat120
Jan 20Oil170
Feb 20Meat265
Feb 20Wheat124
Feb 20Oil178

 

Currently I'm showing the monthly value in a line chart, and using Category in Legend to show each one. What I need is to show all the lines for the % of increment for each month. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi @francomaestri ,
Please try this:

Nathaniel_C_0-1653691549193.png

 

% change = 

var _category = MAX('% Change'[Category])
var _date = MAX('% Change'[Date])

Var _value = MAX('% Change'[Value])// gets the current value


var _calc = CALCULATE(MAX('% Change'[Value]),Filter(All('% Change'), '% Change'[Date]<_date && '% Change'[Category]=_category))//gets the previous months value

var _change = Divide(_value - _calc,_calc)

    return _change

 


Let me know if you have any questions.

If this solves your issues, please mark it as the solution, so that others can find it easily. Kudos 👍are nice too.
