Balance value calculation

Good morning all!

 

Still wet behind the ears with Power BI, I'm trying to create a column that maintains a running balance based on date and transaction type.  Here is my sample table.  My problem is how to calcluate based on the [Transsaction] field (debits v credits)

 

Thanks for any assistance.

DateTransactionTypeAmount
1/1/2018                 123Credit1500
1/1/2018                 124Debit420
1/3/2018                 125Debit360
1/4/2018                 126Credit1650
1/6/2018                 127Credit1200
1/10/2018                 128Debit1000

Hi @JimB-GA,

Based on my test, you could refer to below steps:

Sample data:

1.PNG

Create two calculated columns:

a = IF([Type]="Debit",-[Amount],[Amount])

Total running = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[a]),FILTER('Table1','Table1'[Transaction]<=EARLIER(Table1[Transaction])))

And you could see the result:

You can also download the PBIX file to have a view.

What are your expected results

 

Try this calculated column

 

Running Total =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( Table1[Amount] ),
    FILTER ( Table1, [Date] <= EARLIER ( [Date] ) && [Type] = EARLIER ( [Type] ) )
)

I notified that I only used one ampersand where you formula used two.  Inserting a second & into the formula gave me a value.

 

I must confess that I was not clear with the calculation I want to perform.  Debits need to be subtracted from Credits for the balance column to work.  Do I need to create a calculated column for the amount changing the sign on debits?

 

Thanks again for you help.

What is the end result you desire? Could you show it in the sample table

 

DateTransactionTypeAmount
1/1/2018                 123Credit1500
1/1/2018                 124Debit420
1/3/2018                 125Debit360
1/4/2018                 126Credit1650
1/6/2018                 127Credit1200
1/10/2018                 128Debit1000

He said what he needed in his initial post. It was clear. The desired end result is obvious. Why ask again and then never return to give an answer?

Sorry, I should have thought of that earlier!

 

DateTransactionTypeAmountBalance
1/1/2018                 123Credit         1,500         1,500
1/1/2018                 124Debit            420         1,080
1/3/2018                 125Debit            360            720
1/4/2018                 126Credit         1,650         2,370
1/6/2018                 127Credit         1,200         3,570
1/10/2018                 128Debit         1,000         2,570

Thank you Zabair.

 

The actual table name is 'Claire' and the type field is 'Transaction Type'.

 

I tried the following formula and received the error 'DAX comparison operations do not support comparing values of type Date with values of type Text. Consider using the VALUE or FORMAT function to convert one of the values.'

 

Running Total =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Claire[Amount] ),
FILTER ( Claire, [Date] <= EARLIER ( [Date] ) & [Transaction Type] = EARLIER ( [Transaction Type] ) )
)
