Google Analytics data issues

Hi everyone, 


I am very new at using power bi and I experience a challenge using data from GA. 

I created two tables with the following KPIs connected to the exact same source:

Table 1 with "device category", "date" and "transactions" RESULT> Transaction is 41

Table 2 with device category", "date", "transactions" and "sessionsRESULT> Transaction is 48


I know that the correct data is 41 transactions as I have checked in GA.


So my question is the following: why do I see such a difference between the two tables. I know table 2 has an extra metric (session) so could it be the problem? if so, why? and if so, how do I create a table containing multiple metrics in the correct way ? 


Thanks in advance

Re: Google Analytics data issues

probably the difference comes from sessions spanning across mutliple days

Hi @JonathanItelios,


I think the difference should related to session, some of records existed multiple times(for single session it not duplicated), maybe you can try to write a measure to calculate deal with duplicate records.
