I am trying to create a couple of measures and running into a circular dependency, the measures are as below:
Remaining = Start of Day - (sum of all tickets closed that day)
Start of Day = Added + Previous Day Remaining
Added is the new tickets received per day.
I am using a Direct Query mode as per the requirement.
Please let me know of a way to mitigate this issue!
Thanks in advance!
Make sure you have a date table in your database, Mark that as the date table in Power BI. Then these formulae can be used for today and yesterday
Day behind Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Day))
Today = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),filter('Date','Date'[Date]=Today())
// Today = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),today())
Please refer my blog on the direct query to check more on the date table

Hi @amitchandak ,
Thanks for your response, but i am unsure how this can be applied in my scenario. As mentioned, my Start of Day measure and Remaining measure are interdependent and causing a circular dependency
Start of Day = Added Today + Previous Day Remaining
Remaining = Start of Day - (various other metrics)
