Day to Day Calculated Column

Hello,

 

I have the following example dataset:

 

HotelDateAmount
A1/1/2017100
A1/2/2017200
A1/3/2017300
B1/1/2017400
B1/2/2017500
B1/3/2017600
A1/1/2018700
A1/2/2018800
A1/3/2018900
B1/1/20181000
B1/2/20181100
B1/3/20181200



What I'd like is a calculated column that computes the previous years amounts on a day to day level. So, instead of matching the 1/1/2018 to 1/1/2017, we are matching day of the week. So, we want to match 1/1/2018 to 1/2/2017, basically we want to subtract 364 days. So this is what I'm looking for;

HotelDateAmountDoD
A1/1/2017100 
A1/2/2017200 
A1/3/2017300 
B1/1/2017400 
B1/2/2017500 
B1/3/2017600 
A1/1/2018700200
A1/2/2018800300
A1/3/2018900 
B1/1/20181000500
B1/2/20181100600
B1/3/20181200 


 
Does anyone know how to go about doing this?

Thanks!

Hey @vega!

 

I was able to use LOOKUP and specify both 364 days ago, and hotel. I added a calculated column to my test data model using the following expression:

 

PriorYearHotelValue = 
IF(
    Sheet1[Hotel] = "A",
    LOOKUPVALUE(Sheet1[Value],Sheet1[Date],Sheet1[Date] - 364,Sheet1[Hotel], "A"),
    LOOKUPVALUE(Sheet1[Value],Sheet1[Date],Sheet1[Date] - 364,Sheet1[Hotel], "B")
)

 

In my test data, I started with three columns: Date, Hotel, & Value. The LOOKUP expression looks for the value in Sheet1[Value], where date matches 364 days ago, and hotel matches A. I only have two hotels, so my IF statement executes the first LOOKUP if matches on A, and the second if not.

Thank you, I appreciate it. I was also able to come up with an alternate solution. I'll leave it here in case it helps anyone else out in the future.

=
VAR previousDate = 'Legacy Trans'[Date]-364
RETURN
CALCULATE(
	SUM('Legacy Trans'[Amount]),
	ALLEXCEPT('Legacy Trans','Legacy Trans'[Hotel]),
	'Legacy Trans'[Dates] = previousDate
)
