Re: Remove cumulative total

Hi @JurriaanQEL


In the file you sent, there is no relationship between the dim_date and v_f_Bordereau tables.


When I create a relationship,the left table shows both Cumulative and Monthly Figures.


Right table has missing fields (probably because you deleted some data). So it is not showing up in the File You sent

Re: Remove cumulative total

Hi @Zubair_Muhammad


Ok, so I am close... 

May I ask you to share the file where you managed it with the relationships? Because even with that I am struggling (can't autodetect, or can't create relationship because one of the columns must have unique values)... I think I need to do a course in Power BI...

It's correct that the right table isn't working, I removed one field too many, but since that one was just to show you what numbers there are it wasn't very relevant anyway (and it was showing in the picture).


Thanks as always, very much appreciated.


Kind regards,

Hi @JurriaanQEL


Here it goes!AhiuKaBxxAufjlj_7cIa7Xllk9u4


See the First item with No Month YEAR but a figure for CA Indemnity Paid.

I believe it means your Dim_Date doesot contain all the necessary dates.

Re: Remove cumulative total

Hi again @Zubair_Muhammad,


I thinky you might be on to something.

There is indeed another column that has a date field. 

I've uploaded the less-stripped version:!AiecK9GUkh9Aqy7ukkq6ENOQ288c

The date field consists of year,quarter,month and day. How would that hold up in the DAX?
