## Aggregating over data sets

Hello,

I'm very new to PowerBI (come from a QlikView background) and attempting to calculate the 'absence' of data. We have a set of records for someones timesheet, and I want to work out the amount of 'day job' for that person, for that day. Day job is calculated by the sum of time for that person, for that day, and subtracted from 7.5.

My data set looks like this:

 Date Person Type Hours 10/07/2018 Joe Bloggs Support 4 10/07/2018 Joe Bloggs Project 2 11/07/2018 Joe Bloggs Support 4 11/07/2018 Joe Bloggs Project 2 11/07/2018 Bob Smith Support 2 11/07/2018 Joe Bloggs Project 2 10/07/2018 Bob Smith Support 1 10/07/2018 Joe Bloggs Project 5

So for example, on 10/07/2018, Joe Bloggs did 4 hours support, 2 hours project, therefore 7.5 - 6 = 1.5 hour day job.

I have no idea where to start with PowerBI with this, and would really appreciate some assistance!

Kind Regards,

Dayna

Just create a measure along the lines of:

Measure = 7.5 - SUM('Table'[Hours])

Then just put that into a table visualization along with the other columns that you want to summarize by.
