I have 2 tables that have a quantity and a cost. Ideally, they would be in one table, but the calculations are too complex to have them combined.
In this simplified example, I have 2 tables,
|Date||Cat Amount||Cat Cost|
|Date||Dog Amount||Dog Cost|
I would like to have one bar chart showing sales per day. The result would be spliced by either cat OR dog, depending what was chosen on the splicer. How can I achieve this with a dax measure? Note, I cannot merge queries.
Any help is much appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please look at my test, steps are below
In query editor
1.Merge queries as new
2.in the Merge 1 table, expand columns from table Dogs
3. add two custom columns to calculate sales for Dogs and Cats
4.select the two custom columns "Sales for Cat" and "Sales for Dog", then select "unpivot only selected columns"
5.add a conditional column to define which categoary each value belong to, Dog or Cat.
6.add columns in the chart
Thanks for your reply Maggie,
I was hoping to do it without merging queries since I have many calculations that would not work in a merged query.
I appreciate your time!
There may not be a way...
