Self referencing calculated column (referencing previous row) - Power M help

Good evening,

 

hope you guys can help me! I inherited an old heavy-hard coded file with various cell references and formulas I am now trying to automate.

I need one last step with my PQ query, I need to add a calculated column that is referencing to the previous row of itself to complete a calculation. @ImkeF, I am mentioning you since I have seen a post which you already solved with a very similar issue (https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Calculated-column-with-previous-row-referencing-same-calcul...)

Here below an example of what I need to calculate --> AVAILABLE is the calculated column I need (see on the right the calculation)

 

PRODUCT IDON-ORDERON-HANDAVAILABLE 

ABC

31500469(ONHAND[i] - ONORDER[i])
ABC29500440(AVAILABLE[i-1] - ONORDER[i])
ABC4500436(AVAILABLE[i-1] - ONORDER[i])
DEF26780751(ONHAND[i] - ONORDER[i])
DEF25780726(AVAILABLE[i-1] - ONORDER[i])
DEF89780637(AVAILABLE[i-1] - ONORDER[i])
DEF168780469(AVAILABLE[i-1] - ONORDER[i])
GHI56-36-92(ONHAND[i] - ONORDER[i])
GHI56-36-148(AVAILABLE[i-1] - ONORDER[i])
LMN348220-128.....
LMN26220-154.....
LMN125220-279.....

 

Thank you already for the help.

Hi @Federaske ,

 

Please add an index column in the query editor, and then use DAX to create the following new column:

Column = 
var on_order= CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[ON-ORDER]),FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[PRODUCT ID]),EARLIER('Table'[Index])>='Table'[Index]))
return 'Table'[ON-HAND]-on_order

You must have an index column somewhere. Please include it in your sample data.
