I need your absolute expertise on how to solve this! Measures and DAX-Functions.

Hello!

Give me your best expertise on how to solve this matter.

In my PBI-project, I have thousands of rows and the following tables and columns to play around with (see sample data below):

First, column "Stock Item Code": consists of our article numbers. This column comes from a table named "SIC-Master"

Column "Supplier Stock Code": is as the name suggests the supplier's stock code and can be found in the "SIC-Master" table but also in the "Warehouse" table.

Column "Warehouse": 1 or 3: states which warehouse the "Stock Item Code" and the "Supplier Code" is tied to.

In total the following tables and columns applies:

                                                Table: "SIC-Master" Column/s: "Stock Item Code", "Supplier Stock Code".
                                                Table: "Warehouse", Column/s: "Warehouse", "Supplier Stock Code".

In Power BI, I now want to display:

  •  Which "Supplier Stock Code" and how many of them are tied to each respective "Stock Item Code". This is to determine whether there are duplicates (By duplicates I'm meaning,
    To phrase what I want to find out(display:
                                                       
                               "Do we have Stock Item Codes that has more than one Supplier Stock Code tied to it and if so                                                   which ones?  And what Warehouse are they written on?" 

    The tricky thing is as you can see in the sample data, "Supplier Stock Code": 3VA9673-0JC44 can be written on different "Stock Item Codes (31007593, 1070202,)" and also be tied to different "Warehouses (1, 3)".

  • Lastly, is it possible to create a card showing the nr of "Stock Item Codes" that has more than 1 "Supplier Stock Code" tied to it. So, we can keep track and see whether it's just a few ones or 1000's.

Hope you can help with this as I can't get my head around on how to solve this.

Many thanks!!!

Hi @CARUSO93 
Apologies for the late reply. Please refer to attached file. This is one way of doing that. Other methods also possible. However, I have to mention that there is no way "based on the given information" to relate the warehouse to the Stock Item Code. Please let me know if you have any further information on this regard.

Here's the error message:

Hi @CARUSO93 
This is a performance issue. How many rows do you have?

300 thousand something...

@CARUSO93 
Try first to keep only the # Stock_item_Code and remove the other two measures, apply the filter then add the the other two measures one by one.

Here's the table:

With the filter, it i get this:

CARUSO93_1-1661335643162.png

As you can see, filter is set to "is greater than" and "1".

 

Hmmm... 😕

@CARUSO93 
Can you please click on see details and share the error details?

@tamerj1 Wow, thanks!!!

 

Super impressed by your effort into this.
I really like that it's now possible to see the nr of SIC-codes.

 

I tried to filter  and choose the "is greater than" and 1 as we are interested in knowing which Supplier Stock Codes has more than one Stock item code/s tied to it.
But when I try to filter, the window with my table becomes blank.

 

Is there any way you can display only the Supplier Stock Codes that has more than one SIC-codes attached to them?

Hi @CARUSO93 
It is working normal in the sample file. See screenshot below. Are sure you've selected "is greater than"? as the screenshot you've shared shows "is less than"!

@tamerj1 

 

It's a 'many to many' relationship with a cross filter direction of 'both' between the tables 'SIC-Master' and 'Warehouse'.

 

The expected results will show the 'Supplier Stock Code', then which 'Stock Item Code/s' that are tied to each respective 'Supplier Stock Code'. Then preferably, there will also be a column displaying numerically, how many 'Stock Item Code/s'  that are tied to the 'Supplier Stock Code'. Then another column will display which warehouse that 'Supplier Stock Code' (along with the 'Stock Item Code/s' tied to it) belongs to.

 

Hope this makes sense, otherwise let me know and I'll try clarify even further.

 

 

@CARUSO93 
Ok. I'll get back to you later on tonight.

Hi @CARUSO93 
Would you please present the expected results based on the same sample of data? What is the relationship between the two table?
