Power BI with Microsoft Project Online Aggregate Columm wrong Summarization


Hi all,


I'm integrating Power BI and Microsoft Project Online and I have created a column which aggregates the sum of cost of each Project's task using the following calculation:


Aggregate = CALCULATE(SUM(TasksInformation[TaskCost]), FILTER(TasksInformation,TasksInformation[TaskFinishDate]<= EARLIER(TasksInformation[TaskFinishDate]) && TasksInformation[ProjectName] = EARLIER(TasksInformation[ProjectName])))
Then the result of this column is the following:
Task 11001/06/202010
Task 22002/06/202050
Task 32002/06/202050


The Aggregate summarization is set to Sum in order to be represented in a Line Chart. The issue is that when is drawn in the chart for the day 02/06/2020 is drawing 100 instead of 50.


How could I avoid to sum twice the same amount for the same day? In order to have a linear graph without peaks made by the wrong sum amounts.


Feel free to revert for amy further clarification.


Thanks in advance for the help.

@otgerpeidro ,


Change the aggregation type from sum to max or min in the value section of line chart.

@otgerpeidro , You can try like

sumx(summarize(Table, Table[Date], "_1", sum(Table[Aggregate])),[_1])


But I think you need to have an additional grouping of project id or something similar to that

Hi @amitchandak ,

When you say to try this sumx(summarize(Table, Table[Date], "_1", sum(Table[Aggregate])),[_1])

Where should I try it? sorry I don't get your answer.
