Find difference between the 2 rows of column based on another column criteria

axk180022_0-1630569259585.png

I would want to find the difference in the GenHours for each serialid. Currently this is how my table looks on power BI. I have filtered the latest and 2nd latest date for each serialid.

 

Now i would want to find the difference between the GenHours that is being diplayed on Power BI after applying filters like removing blanks. 

 

Can someone please help.

Hi @axk180022 

According to your statement, I know you want to show absolute Gen Difference. And you will filter your table to show first 2 date for each serialid, you just want show difference in 1st latest date and difference in 2nd latest date will show blank. Here I suggest you build a table visual and create a measure to achieve your goal. Measure could be dynamic.

My Sample:

Rank is a calculated column.

Rank = RANKX(FILTER('Table','Table'[serialid]=EARLIER('Table'[serialid])),'Table'[Dates],,DESC,Dense)

Build a table visual and filter visual by rank column to show items when value is less than or equal to 2.

Measure:

Gen Difference = 
VAR _RANK1GenHours =
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Table'[GenHours] ),
        FILTER (
            ALL ( 'Table' ),
            'Table'[serialid] = MAX ( 'Table'[serialid] )
                && 'Table'[Rank] = 1
        )
    )
VAR _RANK2GenHours =
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Table'[GenHours] ),
        FILTER (
            ALL ( 'Table' ),
            'Table'[serialid] = MAX ( 'Table'[serialid] )
                && 'Table'[Rank] = 2
        )
    )
RETURN
    IF (
        SUM ( 'Table'[Rank] ) = 1,
        ABS ( _RANK1GenHours - _RANK2GenHours ),
        BLANK ()
    )

Result is as below.

@axk180022 See my article on Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) which uses EARLIER: http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Mean-Time-Between-Failure-MTBF-and-Power-BI/ba-p/3395....
The basic pattern is:
Column = 
  VAR __Current = [Value]
  VAR __PreviousDate = MAXX(FILTER('Table','Table'[Date] < EARLIER('Table'[Date])),[Date])

  VAR __Previous = MAXX(FILTER('Table',[Date]=__PreviousDate),[Value])
RETURN
  __Current - __Previous
