I have a per day project cost for different organization. This project has a start date and an end date. I found out how to visualize the per- day project cost across its course of time (i.e. from start date to end date) by creating a measure:
Amount = CALCULATE(SUM('Table1'[Per Day Cost]),FILTER('Table1','Table1'[Contract start date]<=MAX('Calendar'[Date]) && 'Table1'[Contract end date]>=MAX('Calendar'[Date])))
But I am unable to add its cost over its course.
If project has per-day cost 5000 from 1/1/2016 to 12/30/2016, it shows a constant line of $5000 between those dates.
In the figure below
Now, I want to calculate a cumulative cost incurred by a project in a time period selected by me from the calendar. For example:
The project A will have a total cost of 5000*30=150,000 from 1/1/2016 to 1/30/2016. Is there any way that I can do that in power BI? Is there a possibility that we can create a sum measure over an existing measure?
I have attached the .pbix file for your reference:
Please check if the DAX in attached PBIX file return your expected result.
Yes you can do that. Did you try using the Running Total Quick Measure?
Also, check out my Time Intelligence The Hard Way Quick Measure here:
Basically, you just need to create a temp table that FILTER's your table to all rows with a date less than the current context and then do a SUMX on it.
Thanks for the reply. I tried using the new quick measure but it still does not add up the values over the range of selected dates/months/years.
Could you please re-share the PBIX file? I don't have access to the link you post.
