I have the same problem for some time now that I really can't solve. I am doing a calculation to calculate the total energy,
I have following as example:
I have a column with an accumulative TotalEnergy for every device, I have the devices as dirfferent name, Index and I made a Rank with following formula (Where EndUtc is Date and time)
I have tried many different calculations, as for example:
which worked fine, except that I am getting not enough memory capacity, which is weird cause I don't even have too much data, and when I find other formulas and using function EARLIER I get the same issue evrytime, is it possible to write this formula or similar as a measure and not a column?
And also if there are any better way to write the calculation that will be better for the memory capcity?
Thanks! Feeling a bit lost with this issue.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you share your file? I am sorry but I think that I have overlooked some important facts in original post, but if you have created a Index column that increases with every new entry per device you should be able to use this calculated column. And perhaps you do not have to use the device varible at all (i.e. if i Index contains unique values)
EnergyPerDay = VAR device = Data[Device] // could be skipped VAR ind = Data[Index] VAR preInd= ind-1 VAR energyPreDate = SUMX( FILTER( Data, Data[Index] = preInd
&& Data[Device] = device // could also be skipped ), Data[TotalEnergy_kWh] ) RETURN Data[TotalEnergy_kWh] - energyPreDate
You may try to create below measures:
NextValue = CALCULATE ( SUM ( Data[TotalEnergy_kWh] ), FILTER ( ALLEXCEPT ( Data, Data[Device] ), Data[Rank] = MAX ( Data[Rank] ) - 1 ) )
NEWENERGYPERDAY = IF ( ISBLANK ( [NextValue] ), BLANK (), SUM ( Data[TotalEnergy_kWh] ) - [NextValue] )
You can try this,
EnergyPerDay = VAR device = Data[Device] VAR d = Data[Date] VAR tbl = FILTER( Data, Data[Date] < d && Data[Device] = device ) VAR preDate = MAXX( tbl, Data[Date]) VAR energyPreDate = SUMX( FILTER( tbl, Data[Date] = preDate ), Data[TotalEnergy_kWh] ) RETURN Data[TotalEnergy_kWh] - energyPreDate
If this works please LIKE and mark as solutions.
P.s. if there is no gap in the dates, you can change VAR preDate = MAXX( tbl, Data[Date]) to preDate = d-1 and then use preDate in the tbl varible right away.
EnergyPerDay = VAR device = Data[Device] VAR d = Data[Date] VAR preDate = d-1 VAR tbl = FILTER( Data, Data[Date] = preDate && Data[Device] = device ) VAR energyPreDate = SUMX( tbl, Data[TotalEnergy_kWh] ) RETURN Data[TotalEnergy_kWh] - energyPreDate
But everytime I try this as a measure I get the same problem, that PowerBI can't find the column tables, and the names are correct: It find it at some places and some not.
If I put max, it can find it though:
And as a new column, same here not enough memory to complete the operation, which is weird cause I have other files that have more data then this one.
If Data[EndUtc] only contains one row for each device and there are no missing dates you should try the second version of the calculated column. How many rows do you have in your table?
[EndUtc] have have data every 300s (every 5th minute of the day) but only one EndUtc for every device, so if there are five devices, there are five 2019-07-30 13:25:00 stamps for example.
I have 68,152 rows, 30 Columns, The memory capacity error occurs with Earlier function.
Another PowerBI I have been working with the same type of calculation
NewEnergyPerDay_kWh = var maxIndex =CALCULATE( MIN('Data'[MinIndex]), FILTER('Data','Data'[MinIndex]=EARLIER('Data'[MinIndex]))) VAR minVal='Data'[TotalEnergy_kWh] var maxVal= IF('Data'[Index]=maxIndex, LOOKUPVALUE('Data'[TotalEnergy_kWh],'Data'[Index],'Data'[Index]), LOOKUPVALUE('Data'[TotalEnergy_kWh],'Data'[Index],'Data'[Index]+1)) RETURN CALCULATE(DIVIDE(minVal-maxVal,1,0),FILTER('Data','Data'[MinIndex]=EARLIER('Data'[MinIndex])), ALLEXCEPT(Data,Data[Device]))
MaxIndex = CALCULATE(MAX('Data'[Index]),ALLEXCEPT('Data','Data'[Device])) MinIndex = CALCULATE(MIN('Data'[Index]),ALLEXCEPT('Data','Data'[Device]))
there I don't get any memory error, but still some error:
Yes, second formula worked without getting the memory capacity, but the results gets very high negative values, and the values should not be high at all, and positive, maybee I should use some LOOKUPVALUE, instead of the SUMX one?
