Alternative to EARLIER in DAX measure

Hi all,

 

I am trying to obtain a measure that sums the total quantity of Sources that have the same Location. It has to be a measure because the result is dependant on other measures.

 

So here the first Source England with Location New York, has 8 other Sources with New York, so the expected result is 608+369+359+129+68 etc (notice it skipped India)

 

 

SourceQuantityLocationExpected result
England608New York1633
New York369Colombia369
New York359Colombia359
New York129Mexico129
India10USA96
New York68Japan68
New York38Colombia38
New York36Croatia36
New York22China22
New York4Italy4

 

Any ideas? 

 

Before I had all this in excel and I was using:

 

Expected Result = [Quantity]

+ SUMX (

FILTER ( Table, EARLIER ( Location ) = Source)

[Quantity])

@PowerBITestingG try this measure:

 

Sum Qty = SUM ( Source[Quantity] )

Sum = 
SUMX ( 
    Source,
    VAR __location = Source[Location]
    VAR __value = CALCULATE ( [Sum Qty], ALL ( Source ), Source[Source] = __location )
    RETURN
        __value + [Sum Qty]
)
