Comparing Values listed in Table

Hi Everyone, 

 

This is probably pretty straight forward but i am banging my head against the desk. I have a list of prices in a table and i want to be able to identify through using a slicer to select a particular date, what were the price changes that occured and what the old and new price is for the impacted widgets. I have mocked up some simple data to help work my problem. 

 

VendorItem Price Start DateEnd Date
Vendor AWidget 1 $       4.001/1/20187/1/2018
Vendor AWidget 1 $       4.107/1/20189/1/2018
Vendor AWidget 1 $       4.129/1/2018 
Vendor BWidget 2 $       9.001/1/2018 
Vendor CWidget 3 $       6.001/1/20182/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       9.002/1/20183/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       1.003/1/20184/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       6.004/1/20185/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       3.005/1/20186/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       3.006/1/20187/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       4.007/1/20188/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       9.008/1/20189/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       3.009/1/201810/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       4.0010/1/201811/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       1.0011/1/201812/1/2018
Vendor CWidget 3 $       5.0012/1/2018 
Vendor DWidget 4 $       8.001/1/20187/1/2018
Vendor DWidget 4 $       6.007/1/20181/1/2019

 

The solution would be in the image below where I select say "7/1/18" and it lists out the items that had price changes, and what the previous and new price is.

Try adding this calculated column which returns the previous price and then add the column to your visual:

 

MAXX(
    CALCULATETABLE(
        TOPN( 1, Data, Data[Start Date], DESC ),
        ALLEXCEPT( Data, Data[Vendor], Data[Item] ),
        Data[Start Date] < EARLIER( Data[Start Date] )
    ),
    Data[ Price ]
)

You should use LOOKUPVALUE.

 

The lookup will be based on Vendor column and if the end date is different from start date then put the price
