Return price from one table and multiply by volume in another

Hi,

 

I've spent the last few hours on this and decided I need help. I'm quite new to Power BI so still feeling my way around, although an experienced in Excel.

 

I have multiple tables based in a SQL database/warehouse (using Direct Query).

 

One of which contains the standard price for a product (MBEWH[STPRS]), another table contains the transactions with the sold volume (VBRP[FKING]. The material number is [MATNR] in both tables and I want use the most recent Std Cost based on two columns - Year (MBEWH[LFGJA]) and Month (MBEWH[LFMON]). 

 

I would like to calculate the cost of the total product sold but can't get the lookup correct. I've tried LOOKUPVALUE but can't get it to work. I also tried a FIRSTNONBLANK suggestion from another post but couldn't get it to work either.

 

I've hit a brick wall and not sure where to go next? Any assistance on a way to handle the lookup would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @yacatac,

 

You can try to use below formula to find out most recent product price, then you can use it calculate out most recent cost of total sold:

MR Std Cost =
VAR _currNumber =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( MBEWH[MATNR] )
VAR _lastDate =
    MAXX (
        ADDCOLUMNS ( ALLSELECTED ( MBEWH ), "Merge", [LFGJA] * 100 + [LFMON] ),
        [Merge]
    )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        LASTNONBLANK ( MBEWH[STPRS], [STPRS] ),
        FILTER (
            ALLSELECTED ( MBEWH ),
            MBEWH[MATNR] = _currNumber
                && [LFGJA] = LEFT ( _lastDate, 4 )
                && [LFMON] = RIGHT ( _lastDate, 2 )
        )
    )


Cost of the total product sold =
SELECTEDVALUE ( VBRP[FKING] ) * [MR Std Cost]

If above not help, please share a pbix file with some of sample data and expected result, it will be help for test and coding formula.

Re: Return price from one table and multiply by volume in another

Something I forgot to add in the original post was the need to filter based on site  - MBEWH[BWKEY] & VBRP[VSTEL]

 

I hope this link provides enough detail

Unfortunately I had to Import the data to truncate the info due to confidentiality, however the original file is DirectQuery tables.

 

Many thanks for your guidence.

 

Regards

HI @yacatac,

 

After play with your sample, I can't found some of fields which you mentioned.

For your sample data, I can only do summarize on tables and get unique records based on specific summarize mode.
