compare the values of one column, based on the date from another column

Hi everyone,

 

If anyone can help me, how to compare the values of one column, based on the date from another column? I have a column that is included IDs (I have 2 or several IDs per day), I need to find the IDs from each day and put a label for each ID category in another column.

in the below example: I have Run ID which for Oct 15th, I have 4 rows with 2 codes, I wanted to put the label in another column, 60 as the first running, 61 the second running.

Hi, @Vibration85 

 

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

Table:

You may create a calculated column as below.

Column = 
var tab =
SUMMARIZE(
    ALL('Table'),
    'Table'[Run ID],
    'Table'[Date]
)
var newtab = 
ADDCOLUMNS(
    tab,
    "Rank",
    var re = 
    COUNTROWS(
        FILTER(
            tab,
            [Date]=EARLIER('Table'[Date])&&
            [Run ID]<EARLIER('Table'[Run ID])
        )
    )+1
    return re&" Running"
)
return
MAXX(
    FILTER(
        newtab,
        [Run ID]=EARLIER('Table'[Run ID])&&
        [Date]=EARLIER('Table'[Date])
    ),
    [Rank]
)

 

Result:

Hi, @Vibration85 

 

Check if this is what you need:

let
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table16"]}[Content],
    ChangeType = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{"Run_Datetime", type date}),
    Custom1 = Table.Combine(Table.Group(ChangeType,"Run_Datetime",{"n",each Table.AddColumn(_,"Num",(x)=>Text.From(1+List.PositionOf(List.Distinct([Run ID]),x[Run ID]))&" Running")})[n])
in
    Custom1

dear @shaowu459 

 

could you give me the DAX code, please?

Thank you so much 🙂 

Sorry, I didn't notice you need DAX code😂 I'm not familiar with DAX, so let's wait for DAX expert to help you.

Thank you so much for your effort 😁

 

by the way, as my time is so limited, could you give me a hint on how to use this M language? 😉

 

I'm not familiar with M lang at all, a dummy on it.

FYI.

Hey dude, apart from everything, I put my efforts and learn how to use it and it did work, many thanks 🙂

Thanks Pal, @shaowu459 

 

It was not working for me, 😁 as I had many changes before this modification in the advance editor and I think a little bit different in code structure with I saw in Power Query advance editor structure. anyway, thanks a lot. Hope anyone can help me with the DAX code. 

 

Cheers
