Hi @NellF ,

I have prepared two solutions to the problem:

• Use COLUMN to solve this problem

``````result_column =
VAR _1 =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'Table'[Time at Build Place] ),
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Index] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Index] ) - 1 )
)
VAR _2 = 'Table'[Time at Build Place] - _1
RETURN
IF ( 'Table'[Index] = 1, BLANK (), _2 )
``````
• Use MEASURE to solve this problem

``````result_measure =
VAR _1 =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'Table'[Time at Build Place] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Table' ),
'Table'[Index]
= SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[Index] ) - 1
)
)
VAR _2 =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'Table'[Time at Build Place] ),
FILTER (
'Table',
'Table'[Time at Build Place] = SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[Time at Build Place] )
)
) - _1
RETURN
IF ( SUM ( 'Table'[Index] ) = 1, BLANK (), _2 )
``````

Hi @NellF

1.        After moving a down one row, the two columns are subtracted. The first line outputs a blank value.

``````result =
VAR _1 =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'Table'[Time at Build Place] ),
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Index] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Index] ) - 1 )
)
VAR _2 = 'Table'[Time at Build Place] - _1
RETURN
IF ( 'Table'[Index] = 1, BLANK (), _2 )
``````
1.         final output.
