## How to show the variance between two year rows in a matrix

Hi Power BI Guru's

Need help, please.

Below "Total" is the total amount calculating sum of 2018 & 2019.  I need the "Total" Row to show the difference by way of subtracting 2019 and 2018...

I already have a column for Variance, but cannot seem to get it to look exactly as below.

Any Takers? 1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

It will automatically appear in the total as the difference between highest selected year's value and lowest selected year's value

Please see the attached file for clarity

Try this MEASURE.

```Measure =
VAR MaxYear =
MAXX ( ALLSELECTED ( Table1[Economic Year SAP] ), [Economic Year SAP] )
VAR MinYear =
MINX ( ALLSELECTED ( Table1[Economic Year SAP] ), [Economic Year SAP] )
RETURN
IF (
HASONEFILTER ( Table1[Economic Year SAP] ),
SUM ( Table1[Value] ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table1[Value] ), Table1[Economic Year SAP] = MaxYear )
- CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table1[Value] ), Table1[Economic Year SAP] = MinYear )
)
```

Try something like this for your Measure:

```My Diff Measure =
CALCULATE ( [some value], FILTER ( 'Date', Year = 2019 ) )
- CALCULATE ( [some value], FILTER ( 'Date', Year = 2018 ) )```

@Zubair_Muhammad  has a more thorough solution - my measure will only work for the scenario you specified, specifically 2018 and 2019.
