## Cumulative calcualtion on the same column

Hello All,

I have a table with various item and their value for dates. I have calculated the change of their value as return. Now I need to create a column that refers to its previous value of the same column. My data is as follows:

 Date Type Value Return Column 1/1/2020 A 1 100 1/2/2020 A 2 1 200 1/3/2020 A 3 0.5 101 1/4/2020 A 4 0.333333 134.6667 1/5/2020 A 5 0.25 102 1/1/2020 B 7 100 1/2/2020 B 8 0.142857 103 1/3/2020 B 9 0.125 115.875 1/4/2020 B 10 0.111111 104 1/5/2020 B 11 0.1 114.4

I need to calculate the new column whose formula is:

if(return = 0), then 100

else previous value * (1+ return)

It is quite staright forward in excel. We can directly do, E4 = E3*(1+D4)

When i create a similar formula in DAX, i am getting a circular loop error. Any helps is appreciated.

Hi @sonm10 ,

Please check if this is what you want:

``````Column 2 =
VAR CurrentDate = [Date]
VAR t =
ADDCOLUMNS ( 'Table', "Return_1", [Return] + 1 )
RETURN
PRODUCTX (
FILTER ( t, [Type] = EARLIER ( [Type] ) && [Date] <= CurrentDate ),
[Return_1]
) * 100
``````

But I have some confusion. Is the data marked above written wrong?

Best Regards,

Icey

Thanks a lot @Icey . Exactly what i wanted. I had made some mistakes in the sample data and yet you provided exactly what i wanted.

@sonm10 , try a new column

if(coalesce([Return],0) =0,100 , [value] * (1+ [return]))

if(([Return]+0) =0,100 , [value] * (1+ [return]))
