Matrix visual with difference calculation from total row

I need to create a matrix visual that looks like the following:

TrainDay 6Day 7Day 8

Loc. A

208822042088
Loc. B150815082436
Total359637124524
Capacity400040004000
Difference-404-288524

(train load in tons, capacity is specific to Company A, I have different tables featuring different trains and capacities on a per company basis).

 

Source data features 2 different tables. One for the load that the train is carrying and one for the companies and their total capacity that follow a simple relationship with eachother:

CompanyTrainDayLoad
Company ALoc. A61392
Company ALoc. A6696
Company ALoc. B61508
Company BLoc. A6928
Company BLoc. A61044

 

CompanyCapacity
Company A4000
Company B4200

 

I have been able to create the matrix without the capacity and difference row. But I do need to display the capacity and the difference from the actual planning preferably within one table. Any other ideas are also welcome!

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi @d_h ,

 

Please create a new table.

 

Table = 
VAR newcapacity =
    CROSSJOIN ( Capacity, VALUES ( Train[Day] ) )
VAR UnionTab =
    UNION (
        Train,
        SELECTCOLUMNS (
            newcapacity,
            "Company", [Company],
            "Train", "Capacity",
            "Day", [Day],
            "Load", [Capacity]
        )
    )
RETURN
    ADDCOLUMNS (
        UnionTab,
        "Type", IF ( [Train] = "Capacity", "Capacity", "Train" )
    )

Then create these measures.

 

Load and Capacity = 
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Load] ), 'Table'[Company] = "Company A" )
TotalValue = 
VAR diff =
    CALCULATE ( [Load and Capacity], 'Table'[Type] = "Train" )
        - CALCULATE ( [Load and Capacity], 'Table'[Type] = "Capacity" )
RETURN
    IF ( ISFILTERED ( 'Table'[Type] ), [Load and Capacity], diff )

@amitchandak Thank you for your reply.

 

I watched both videos that suggest adding an Excel workbook to a Power BI app.

Is that the only way to achieve this? I'd like to have the matrix within a report.
