Pivot table and Time intelligence in Direct Query mode

Hi

Happy new year every one 🙂

 

I've a table I want to show in a matrix table

The key points :

  • I'm in direct query mode.
  • I need to compare data count with the same period of the previous year

My data model is simple :

Date (date time)Year (integer)Class (text)Id (text)

The date field contains only the first day of each month.

I have to classes : Class A and Class B

Measures :

  • Result current year=DISTINCTCOUNT (Id)
  • Result previous year=CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT (Id),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Date))

 

I simply need to show table in a matrix (like a pivot table in Excel). Something like this

YearMonthClass A current year

Class A

previous year

Class B

current year

Class B

previous year

2017 10095200210
 01/01/201710121228
 01/02/2017841513
 ...............

 

It does not work properly : I got this

YearMonthClass A current year

Class A

previous year

Class B

current year

Class B

previous year

2017     
 01/01/201710 12 
 01/02/20178 15 
 ...............

 

But if I do not show the year, it works :

MonthClass A current year

Class A

previous year

Class B

current year

Class B

previous year

01/01/201710121228
01/02/2017841513
...............

 

I know there are limitations in direct query mode 

However question seems simple.

 

Any idea ?

Thanks for your help

Regards

Marc

Re: Pivot table and Time intelligence in Direct Query mode

Hi @marcp2 ,
 
I think you would have to create it for yourself by making columns [year], [quarter],[month],[date] and then use them to create a hierarchy.
You can learn about modeling and reporting limitations of direct query connections in this document:

Re: Pivot table and Time intelligence in Direct Query mode

If it's not something as simple as having subtotals, or some other form of totals, on your matrix turned off, and/or your date hierarchy not working problem, then I don't really know
