How to retain daily calculated value ?

hi Superusers,

i would like to calculate the number of parts in a table daily and retain the value that ties to the date automatically without human intervention. Today, I do it manually by refreshing the tables, and manually input the calculated value in a table.

Is there a way to remove this redundancy and let power BI does it automatically ?

@AndrewHam , You can schedule a refresh on the power bi service, but why daily you need to input the calculated table is not clear


i can perform a schedule refresh daily but it does not solve my problem because I will still have to check the calculated part count and input into a separate table for KPI tracking.

Example, in a warehouse where we stock materials, I'm measuring the number of parts that have zero stock daily. Currently, i have to refresh the table daily which I have a measure to calculate the number of parts with zero on-hand. Wonder, whether there is a way to do it automatically . (In Excel, I would have written a VBA to calculate and save the value). Any advice is appreciated.
