If previous day value is blank, then take lastnonblankvalue before current date

Hello, 

 

I have a question. I'm creating a stock report. The end stock of the previous day, is the opening stock of the current day. However, on some days there is no end stock. 

 

This is an example of the table visual:

LamSar_0-1654594516854.png

On 03/06/222 there are no stock calculations. 

So therefore the beginstock of 04/06/2022 is empty.  But I would like to see the endstock of 02/06/2022 (which is 20) as begin stock of 04/06/2022.

 

What I would like to achieve is the following:

If previous day value is blank, then take lastnonblankvalue before current date

 

This is the calculation of begin stock:

Begin stock =
VAR beginstock = CALCULATE(SUM(RetailStock[StockHoeveelheid]), PREVIOUSDAY('Datum'[Datum]))
Var Result = IF(
not(
ISBLANK(
SUM(RetailStock[StockHoeveelheid]))),
beginstock, blank())
Return
Result
 
How can I achieve this?

Hello LamSar

 

Try this measure: 

 

Begin stock =

var _day = max('Datum'[Datum])

Var _daybefore = 
	calculate( 
		MAX(RetailStock[Datum]),
		Filter ( ALL(RetailStock),RetailStock[Datum]<_day)

VAR beginstock = 
	CALCULATE(
		SUM(RetailStock[StockHoeveelheid]), 
		Filter ( ALL(RetailStock),RetailStock[Datum]=_daybefore)

Var Result = 
IF(
not( ISBLANK(
SUM(RetailStock[StockHoeveelheid]))),
beginstock, blank())
Return
Result

Thank you for your answer. 

Sadly this will not work, because the RetailStock table does not hold a column with a date column. It only holds a column that holds a surrogate key (datatype int) that refers to the date dimension. 

 

I can't add a column because I'm using a tabular modal. 

Hi again, 

So use the id 

Begin stock =

var _dayID = max('Datum'[DatumID])

Var _daybeforeID = 
	calculate( 
		MAX(RetailStock[DatumID]),
		Filter ( ALL(RetailStock),RetailStock[DatumID]<_dayID)

VAR beginstock = 
	CALCULATE(
		SUM(RetailStock[StockHoeveelheid]), 
		Filter ( ALL(RetailStock),RetailStock[DatumID]=_daybeforeID)

Var Result = 
IF(
not( ISBLANK(
SUM(RetailStock[StockHoeveelheid]))),
beginstock, blank())
Return
Result

I already tried that. But then I get the wrong values:
