Sales Cost Changes

Hi,

 

struggling to work out the best way to create a measure that will take into account my cost changing over time.  I realise this is probably relatively simple.

 

Cost Change Table 
  
Cost Change DateItem 1
01/04/2019£22.45
01/04/2020£22.85

 

Sales Fact Table 
  
DateItem
30/03/2020Item 1
31/03/2020Item 1
01/04/2020Item 1
02/04/2020Item 1

Re: Sales Cost Changes

@Daviejoe I believe you want to apply the cost based on the date to your fact table, Your cost change table need to unpivoted to achieve this.

 

- transform data
- select cost change date 
- right-click, unpivot other columns it will add two columns, attribute, and value, rename these as per your requirement
- close and apply

and now you can easily add the measure to get the cost based on the date.

Re: Sales Cost Changes

@Daviejoe , first unpivot the cost table have cost on row. Then create a column like this in sales table


new column = minx(filter(CostChange, CostChange[item] =Sales [item] && CostChange[Date] <=Sales [Date]),lastnonblankvalue(CostChange[date],max(CostChange[cost])))
