ABS by product Platform

Hi,

 

I have the following Dataset:

 

PlatformProductAct (Sum measure)Forecast (Sum Measure)ABS (ABS = ABS('Actual Consol'[Act]-[Forecast]))
AA1802060
AA2405616
BB112015030
CC1514
CC2101
CC3341
CC4473
CC5958114

 

 

I would like to calculate the ABS of the product platform but according to each product.

 
I tried this 
ACC ABS = CALCULATE(ABS([Contract Act]-[Contract Forecast]),ALLEXCEPT(Matrix_Lookup,Matrix_Lookup[Product])) but that gave me the total ABS for each line, 
See column ABS by Product, that is the resulet I want
 
 
PlatformActForecastABSACC ABSABS by Product - want
A12076442976
B120150302930
C10893152923
Total3483192929129

 

Thanks!

Hi @Chedva ,

Could you please consider sharing the relationship and fields between these tables or a sample .pbix file for further discussion?  I have created the table relationship like this and create a measure to get your expected output but not certain your dataset relationship:

ABS by product = 
CALCULATE(
    SUMX(
        'act table',
        [ABS]
    ),
    ALLEXCEPT(
        'act table',
        'act table'[Platform]
    )
)

Just use SUM('Table'[ABS])

If you put those items in a Table visualization.

@Greg_Deckler @az38 

ABS is a measure, not in a specific table. the table I showed is a table in the report section.

Act - a measure - that sums the measure from the actual table

Forecast - a measure that sums the forecast from forecast table.

Matrix_Lookup is a table with relationship to both actual table and forecast table on the product. and it has the platform there as well for slicing the report.

 

Hope I was clear - thanks for you help!!!

Well then this looks like a measure aggregation problem. See my blog article about that here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Design-Pattern-Groups-and-Super-Groups/ba-p/138149

@Chedva 

this doesn't work?

Measure = 
CALCULATE(
SUMX('Matrix_Lookup', ABS([Act]-[Forecast])), 
ALLEXCEPT(Matrix_Lookup, Matrix_Lookup[Platform])
)

Hi @Chedva 

try this measure

Measure = 
CALCULATE(
SUMX('Matrix_Lookup', ABS('Matrix_Lookup'[Act (Sum measure)]-'Matrix_Lookup'[Forecast (Sum Measure)])), 
ALLEXCEPT(Matrix_Lookup, Matrix_Lookup[Platform])
)
