I need to check if my recommendations are being executed or not


I recieve cost savings recommendations every month as a csv file, This file contains the resource name and the expected savings value. The recommendation file is apended each month with new recommendations.

I have to check if my recommendation was executed or not.

For example, I have recommendations for jan and feb, If the resource name is in both jan and feb then the recommendation was not executed, if the resource name is not there in feb then the recommendation was executed.

I am not able to understand how can I replicate this logic in Power BI.

I have been trying to figure this out for 2 days but could not find any solution.

Thank you for help in advance!


You can use the function repeatedly.  You can also use NOT IN( )

Read about the EXCEPT() function in DAX

Hey lbendlin,

I can use the except function when I have 2 different files, but my files are being updated from an azure storage account and it is being appended everytime we refresh the report.
