Hi,

 

Thank you for your reply.

My pbix file is having some private data.So is there any way to share it with you by hiding the data that is private?

Dummy your dataset and then share the download link.

In the file if you will click on B then a screenshot will appear as follows

Thanks.

Hi,

 

I have updated my test file with some changes in the calculation for running total

 

I need to change my pbi file as follows:

The cumulative total for a previous week should be assigned to the on hand quantity of next week.

 

week 47:

 

On hand = total of week 46 = 557.72

 

week 48:

 

On hand = total of week 47 =  -993.83

 

week 49:

 

On hand = total of week 48 = -1551.55 +(- 993.83) = -2545.83

 

and like this in the remaining weeks.

Please find the updated link below.

I need to implement this in one of my report very urgently.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

 

 

 

Hi,

 

I may be able to solve this in Ecel using the PowerPivot and CUBE functions.  I cannot solve this in PBI desktop.  Sorry but will not be able to help.

Hi @v-shex-msft

 

Thank you for the update!!

Were you able to find a solution to this problem with the pbi file shared in one of the trailing posts?

 

I am very new to Power BI and need to implement it in one of my reports urgently.

Capture8.PNGcapture9.PNG

I have modified my pbi file with some calculations and shared it below:

 

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/12Ou3PcwDie0aju7ZV8ISSbeKsvXdZ6Vp

 

Now i need to make some changes in the way data is being represented in the file.I need to re-adjust the value of on hand quantity of the current week with the cumulative total of the previous week(demand+inbound supply+on Hand).Presently the on hand field is showing the same value for every week(in this example)

 

For week 47:

 

On hand = running total of previous week(46)= 557.72

 

For week 48:

 

On hand =  running total of previous week(46)=-993.83 etc.. till the last week.

 

Adjusting the value of on hand will also change the cumulative total that is being represented for any week.

 

I need to implement this in one of my reports very urgently as it is hampering the progress of it.

 

Any help/pointers will be greatly appreciated!!

 

Please let me know for any question/clarification

 

Thanks

Hi @sajal161292,

 

I think you can add filter to check where the formula is calculated on and use previous result to replace current value.(your visual contains complex grouping columns, it is hard to write a specific condition to filter on it)

 

For example:

Modify formula shows total as 0, May,July shows 'custom'.

Hi @v-shex-msft,

 

I have modified my pbi file with adding up a new measure for representing the previous week sales.

Additionally i have added a new order type as Total.

 

Now i am stuck up while re-assigning the value of previous week sales to the field Total.

Is there any way to perform iteration in DAX and traverse for each record?

 

Please find the link of new pbi file below

Thanks for your help!!

HI @sajal161292,

 

>>Is there any way to perform iteration in DAX and traverse for each record?

It is possible to achieve this, but you need to add huge amount of conditions to help measures confirm where current content calculated. 

 

In my opinion, power bi not support auto/dynamic calculate on complex measures(exist some specific filters, contains break row contents function e.g. 'all/allexcept').

 

Notice: if your data contains any privacy data, please do mask sensitive data before sharing.

Hi,

 

So will it be possible to perform this operation in DAX?

 

Thanks

Hi @sajal161292,

 

Please share the sample pbix file to test, it will be help to analysis your situation.(if your file contains some privacy data, you only need to share part of them or use original structure to create some fake data)


BTW, measures which works on specific filters normally not work properly on total row. In my opinion, you need to add a filter to check on total row and write a specific formula who works on total row.

 

For example: 

checkrow =
IF (
    COUNTROWS ( table ) <> COUNTROWS ( ALLSELECTED ( table ) ),
    "normula row",
    "total row"
)
