## Simple Like for like analysis

Hello Guys,

I am faced with a classic like for like problem.

I have a set of stores data, and would like to create a column where I can flag which store is "like for like", which one has been closed, which one has been opened from one year to another. See below example.

In my simple mind it is something like: IF StoreID is found in both years then Like for Like; if StoreID is found only in 2021 is Closed; if StoreID only in 2022 is new.

Only thing... I cannot translate this in DAX.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Mario

 Year StoreID Sales Status 2021 Store_1 10 Like for like 2022 Store_1 10 Like for like 2022 Store_2 10 Open 2021 Store_3 10 Closed

Hi @MarioA ,

try this calculated column

``````Column =
VAR MaxYear = MAX('Facts9'[Year])
RETURN
SWITCH(TRUE(),
COUNTROWS(
FILTER(
'Facts9',
'Facts9'[StoreID] = EARLIER('Facts9'[StoreID])
)) > 1, "Like for like",
'Facts9'[Year] = MaxYear,"Open",
'Facts9'[Year] < MaxYear,"Close"
)``````

Hi @MarioA ,

do you need a measure or a calculated column?

One of the two would work - I am also open to suggestion on wether to utilise one or the other! Thanks a lot for your reply!
