Helper III

## *** Compare averages versus goals

Hello, in this example I have two ways of approaching just not sure whats easiest

Lets say I have 5 locations, A-E.

My table 'Transactions', records daily transaction amounts for all locations like this

What I want to do is rank the averge number of transactions for these locations. However, the problem is that for locations A, B, C and D, the goal is 500. For E (Since its larger) the goal is 750. Note: the goal is to get as close to the target as possible. Meaning too many is bad on costs (i know that doesnt make much sense but this is a dummy example for what im actually doing) and too little is also bad.

At a first glance this is really simple where all I would have to do use my average measure
Average Transactions = AVERAGE('Transactions'[Sales])

And then find difference from my target
Variance = ABS([AverageTransations] - 500) and then sort by largest difference.

The issue is that for location E I need to do this by 750.

Option 1: make an if statement, but when i do a measure it doesnt recognize location column and when I do a calculate column it doesnt calculate correctly.
Option 2: enter table manually and create a relationship
Location       Target
A                   500
B                    500
C                    500
D                   500
E                    750

Both have failed. Any ideas?

Hi, @water-guy-5

You can try the following methods.

Column:

``Target = LOOKUPVALUE(Target[Target],Target[Location],[Location])``

Measure:

``Variance = ABS(AVERAGE('Table'[Sales])-SUM('Table'[Target]))``
``Rank = RANKX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),[Date]=SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Date])),[Variance],,DESC)``

Is this the result you expect?
