## Average Rate of Consumption for the one year

Hi Power BI Experts,

I am calculating the average rate of consumption per day for the current date to last one year.

You can refer to the following example.

Create two columns in the  table:

``````Rate = var a=MINX(FILTER('Table',[Date]>EARLIER('Table'[Date])),[Date])
var b=LOOKUPVALUE('Table'[Tank Level],[Date],a)
return [Tank Level]-b

Average_rate = AVERAGE('Table'[Rate])``````

For the above table there is another column as date & time which show's one every one date record it is divided into 60seconds*24hours=1440 records. I have added instead of date column with date & time. I tried to execute the above expression it is taking more than 1 hour to execute. How can i minimize the query after adding the date & time column instead of date. Please help.

Below is the expression i modified.

``````Rate = var a=MINX(FILTER('Table',[Date & Time]>EARLIER('Table'[Date & Time])),[Date & Time])
var b=LOOKUPVALUE('Table'[Tank Level],[Date & Time],a)
return [Tank Level]-b

Average_rate = AVERAGE('Table'[Rate])``````

The dateset is large, so the calculation will be affected, it cannot be  minimized, you may need to

reduce the amount of data.
