I'm fairly new to Power BI.
I have a simple matrix table which has types of service on the rows, months as columns and the some of each as the values, as follows:
What I want to be able to to do is convert that so I can see the variance from the previous month i.e. Service 1 from Jan to Feb would be a positive variance of 300 and so on.
I've tried all sorts but nothing seems to work.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
That makes sense...
I'm getting the following error when I add that measure?
OrderBy column 'Month No.' could not be found in OFFSET's Relation parameter.
I am not sure how your datamodel looks like, but please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.
expected result measure: = VAR _currentvalue = SUM ( Data[Value] ) VAR _prevmonthvalue = CALCULATE ( SUM ( Data[Value] ), OFFSET ( -1, ALL ( 'Month' ), ORDERBY ( 'Month'[Month No], ASC ) ) ) RETURN IF ( NOT ISBLANK ( _prevmonthvalue ) && HASONEVALUE ( Service[Service] ), _currentvalue - _prevmonthvalue )
Thanks for this, i will give it ago.
I haven't got a data model as you sugest, all of my data work is done in the transform section then i'm using the final appended and merged data as my source data.
Why do we need a month number, I assume I need to add this to my data?
Thank you for your message.
The reason why we need a month number column is that,
- Jan, Feb, and Mar has to be sorted by month number column, not by alphabetical order.
- we need to let Power BI know that "Feb" minus one is "Jan".
The month number column helps these kinds of sort-order-arrangement and calculations.
I hope this helps.
