## Calculation support

Hi Gents,

Need your support with the following:

I have this table

 Type P01 P.. P12 CountryX Sales Coffee CountryX Sales Margin Coffee CountryX Sales Tea CountryX Sales Margin Tea

I Want to do the following:

Calculate Q1 Sales = P01+P02+P03

Calculate Q1 Sales Margin = P01+P02+P03

.

same until Q4

I thought of Unpivotting P01-P12 but then what?

I want to have a stacked graph where I can display 2 bars, one for sales and one for sales margin next to each others while the x-axis is the quarter.

And then create another stacked column to display the sales and sales margin while the X axis is the Type

Thanks

Hi, @abukapsoun , how about calculating number of quarter after unpivoting P01-P12. The sales data then is tranformed to a one-dimensional table. A pbix file is attached for your reference.

 Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension! DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!

@abukapsoun , First of unpivot the table. Then Create Period table With Period and Qtr , if you have the year you can add that. Or Create a year period table. Create period rank if needed qtr rank .

new column in period table

Qtr = Switch (true(),

[period] in {"P01","P02","P03"}, "1",

[period] in {"P04","P05","P06"}, "2"

}

Here Date is your period table

Month Rank = RANKX(all('Date'),'Date'[Period],,ASC,Dense)  // period or year -period
This Month = CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Month Rank]=max('Date'[Month Rank])))
Last Month = CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Month Rank]=max('Date'[Month Rank])-1))
Last year Month= CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Month Rank]=(max('Date'[Month Rank]) -12)))

Qtr or Qtr Rank

Qtr Rank = RANKX(all('Date'),'Date'[Qtr],,ASC,Dense)  //on Qtr or Year - Qtr
This Qtr = CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Qtr Rank]=max('Date'[Qtr Rank])))
Last Qtr = CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Qtr Rank]=max('Date'[Qtr Rank])-1))
