## Deaveraging prices

Hello!

I am pretty new to Dax and need help with the below problem:

I have a series of products with unique serial numbers that have been bought in a LOT at an average price of X / Unit ( in the picture below it is \$64.70)

Some of the serial numbers end up being non-fully functional (NF) and therefore we want to price them in our system at 50% discount. ie: \$32.35

We would like Power BI to create a new column with an adjusted price:

- for NF product = \$32.35

- for all other product = a BuyPrice higher than \$64.70 so that the average of the entire lot remains the same. In other words distribute the cumulated loss on the NF product to all other products.

Hi @MarcRapenne ,

You can try the DAX like below:

``````Column =
VAR COUNT_ID =CALCULATE( COUNT('Table'[ID]),FILTER('Table','Table'[ID]<>"NF"))
VAR SUM_PRICE =SUM('Table'[Price])
VAR _50 = 0.5*'Table'[Price]
RETURN IF('Table'[ID]="NF",_50,(SUM_PRICE-_50)/COUNT_ID)``````

Sounds doable. Unfortunately I can't really make heads or tails of exactly what to do with the current level of detail provided. Please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490.

No idea what your data looks like, what is and is not an NF product and a whole host of other unknowns.

Hello @V-lianl-msft

Thanks for your feedback. I was able to make it work !

In the file you can see 3 sheets (dropbox Link)https://www.dropbox.com/s/mc14wegnnubptd8/200416%20TEST%20Power%20BI.xlsx?dl=0

1. A sample file – with all units part of the same LOT (LOT1)
2. The formula that we used – this is the same as the one posted by you – but I had to add Count_NF and use it in the return line (the example you posted had only 1 line NF, the formula would not work with more than 1 NF line)
3. A new sample file with units being part of 2 Lots (LOT1 and LOT2)

The question I have now is how do I update my formula in order to make it work for a data base that has 2 Lots or more: the data base has units of 2 different lots but I need to run the calculations lot by lot, separately

Thanks so much !

Hi @MarcRapenne ,

I recreated pbix based on the data you provided.

``````Column =

See if this meets your needs.

Thank you, this worked great!

Now I am wondering if I can keep adding filters within"EARLIER". Because unfortunately, after looking at all my historical data, some lots have different items within them which therefore have a different Buy Price (example pictured)

This messes up the Adjusted Price since the calculation is at LOT level. I tried to add another Filter (Model) but something doesn't seem to be working.

Thank you again for all your help!

Hi @MarcRapenne ,

Yes, you can add appropriate filter conditions according to your own needs.

Thanks again. When I am trying to add the other filter to filter out the data via Model (after LOT) I get an error message. "Parameter is not the correct type". Please let me know if you have a solution for this.

Thank you so much!
