Costs / daycount

Hi there,

I'm just starting with Power BI and can't figure out the following.

 

I have a daycount colomn and a costs colomn. I want to device costs by total daycount. After that I want to multiply 'costs per daycount' times daycount. In the snip below the result for the top row should be 236.30 (375/146* 92)and the botom row 138.70.

 

I calculated daycount: Daycount = DATEDIFF(MIN([Start Date];[Einddatum]);MAX([start Date];[Einddatum]);DAY) 

Costs 2018 is a colomn in anonther query.

Hi @JBikker,

 

Here we can take the following steps to meet your requirement.

 

1. Add a calculated column to get the sum of Daycount per contract.

 

Sum = CALCULATE(SUM(Subscriptions[Daycount]),FILTER(ALL(Subscriptions),Subscriptions[Part of contract]=EARLIER(Subscriptions[Part of contract])))

2. Then can need to update the formula as below.

 

Result = RELATED(Contracts[Costs 2018]) / Subscriptions[Sum] * Subscriptions[Daycount]

Hi @JBikker,

 

As your description, I made a sample here. As you said Costs 2018 is a column in another query. To achieve your goal here, the two tables should be related. So I created relationship between the DATA and cost tables based on index columns in advance.

Then we can create the calculate column in Data table using the formula.

 

Result = RELATED(Cost[Cost 2018])/SUM(DATA[Daycount])*DATA[Daycount]

Then we can get the result as we excepted.

@v-frfei-msftThanks so much for your help! I'm getting closer.  I have two followup questions.

 

1. How can you calculate daycount if there is no enddate yet? If the enddate is blank I would like to get the result Startdate > Today

2. 'Price' is not always the same. Subscriptions are part of different contract.  When I used your method in my model it did not filter per contract but instead summed up all 'daycount's from different contracts.

 

I've attached a file.. Hopefully this makes it a bit more clear. The column result does not make any sense.

Hi Frank, Yes it does make sense. Thanks so much! I tried to close it a couple of times now but I keep getting the following error. I tried different browser but I keep getting the error... JavaScript is on...
