Reconciling two columns - what function to use?

Hi,

 

I'm currently trying to create the "Company B value" column in the table below.

 

We are combining the transactions of Company A and Company B into the same fact table.

 

Company 600 is receiving money from company 700. In the first line we can see that 600 has received the value of £2000 from company 700. In the second line, we can see the transcation from the perspective of company 700, where £2000 has left their account. I need to calculate the Diff column to show inconsistencies in the accounts, which is easy once I have the Company B Value col. Has anyone got a clue how to create this?  

 

Company A IDCompany B IDCompany A ValueCompany B ValueDiff
600700£2000(£2000)£0
700600(£2000)£2000£0
600700£1000(£900)£100
700600(£900)£1000(£100)

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

This is my test table:

vyadongfmsft_0-1661419856651.png

 

Please try following DAX to create new columns:

Company A value = IF('Company'[Company A ID]=600,FORMAT('Company'[Company A transaction],"£#"),"("& FORMAT('Company'[Company A transaction],"£#") &")")

Company B value = IF('Company'[Company B ID]=600,FORMAT('Company'[Company B transaction],"£#"),"("& FORMAT('Company'[Company B transaction],"£#") &")")

Diff = 
VAR Diff1 =ABS([Company A transaction]-[Company B transaction])
VAR Diff2 = FORMAT(Diff1,"£#0")
VAR Diff3 = IF([Company A transaction]<[Company B transaction],"("&Diff2&")",Diff2)
return Diff3

 

Then you will get results you want:
