I am wondering if anyone has come across this before. We have 4 seperate databases that are all setup with the same table structure. I am pulling from the data for general ledger transactions from each of them as seperate queries for the past two years. When they are seperate, the summed value for all of the income statement accounts are rock solid. Each refresh shows the same answer. When I append all 4 of the queries together as a new table, each time I refresh I get a different result in the combined table for periods in the past that are closed.
My apologies for the delay in response here. I was on vacation when you asked the question and the email was lost in my inbox until now. I did solve this purely by luck. It appears that if you have conflicting privacy levels (and sometimes even not) the append will give different results. I turned off the following option in my reports and things stablized:
File=> Options and Settings => Options=> Privacy
From there I chose the other radio button option "Ignore the Privacy Levels and potentially improve performance".
Hi! I am pulling the data into Power BI via Sql. There are only a few columns:
The where clause in the sql statement is limiting it to year 2017 and higher. Then I am using the "Append as New" function in the Advanced Editor. Once done, I create a simple matrix table showing the value as amount, column as year and row as period. Each time I refresh, I get a different answer. The only account period that we have open is Feburary 2018. Prior Month's should be the same. This is only happening with a table that is appended from the 4 other tables. If I do the same matrix with each individual table, the numbers to not change on each refresh of the data.
