## Difference between values in the same column for unique index

Hi 🙂

I am having trouble calculating the difference between values in the same column.

My dataset is like this:

I added a matrix table based on this data to the dasboard that looks like this:

Now I would like to add a column to this table that would calculate the Avr. currency price difference between 2021 and 2020 for each unique Part_no. There are blanks in the data. Unfortunately, I do not know how to write the DAX formula

Hi @Karlie69 ,

``````difff =
var _pre=CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Avr]),FILTER('Table',[Part_no]=EARLIER('Table'[Part_no]) && [Year]=EARLIER([Year])-1))
return  IF(_pre=BLANK(),BLANK(), [Avr]-_pre)``````

If it's not your expected output, please share more detail information to help us clarify your scenario.

Thank you very much! It works 🙂 I just changed the formula from SUM to AVERAGE, because in some places I had bad results, but now it's good everywhere.

Hi @Karlie69 ,

According to your dataset screenshots, the Avr is in the same year of each Part_no, so how to calcualte the difference ?

Sorry, this is my mistake. For the purposes of this post, I created an example dataset. The fourth line should be 2021.

I would just like to add a calculated column like in Excel pivot tables that will calculate the difference for me between 2021 and 2020. But is it better to make a pivot table in Power Query and calculate the difference there?

I did not think about it before - even if I create this column with DAX, it will not appear next to 2020 and 2021 in the table, but under these years.

@Karlie69 , Try new column like

New column =
var _max = maxx(filter(Table, [part number] = earlier([part number]) && [year] = earlier([year]) -1), [Avr. Currency Price])
return
[Avr. Currency Price] -_max

Hi @amitchandak ,

thanks for your answer. Unfortunately, it doesn't work and I don't know why.

I created the formula like this:
