Issue with Circular Dependency! Need Help!

Hello Team,

 

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

Re: Issue with Circular Dependency! Need Help!

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)
