Subtotals Balance Sheet

Hi,

In the past, I have been very well helped by a fellow forum member in building a P&L.
The nice thing about this model is, that it can be applied in Power BI and Power Pivot.
Privately I like to work with Power BI, but at work I can only use Power Pivot.

Now I would like to build a Balance Sheet as well. The examples I find on the forum use measures that are not available in Power Pivot.
Therefore, I would like to use the current P&L model for building a Balance Sheet as well. Only the subtotals are calculated differently.

I hope you guys can help me in creating this overview.
I have attached a Testfile and the end result looks like this.

Thank you and best regards,
Marcel

Hi @marsclone ,

``````Group 1 =
var Pre =
MAXX(
FILTER(
'Report Balance',
'Report Balance'[Sortgroup] < EARLIER('Report Balance'[Sortgroup])
&& 'Report Balance'[Subtotal?] = 1
),
'Report Balance'[Sortgroup]
)
return
IF(
'Report Balance'[Subtotal?] = 1 && Pre <> 'Report Balance'[Sortgroup] - 1,
'Report Balance'[Sortgroup]
)``````
``````Group 2 =
IF(
'Report Balance'[Subtotal?] = 1 && 'Report Balance'[Group 1] = BLANK(),
'Report Balance'[Sortgroup]
)``````

Then create the following measures:

``````GROUP_1 =
var Pre_Group1 =
MAXX(
FILTER(
ALL('Report Balance'),
'Report Balance'[Group 1] < MAX('Report Balance'[Group 1])
),
'Report Balance'[Group 1]
)
var Group1_Value =
CALCULATE(
[Total Balance],
FILTER(
ALL('Report Balance'),
'Report Balance'[Sortgroup] < MAX('Report Balance'[Sortgroup]) && 'Report Balance'[Sortgroup] > Pre_Group1
)
)
return
IF(
MAX('Report Balance'[Sortgroup]) = MAX('Report Balance'[Group 1]),
Group1_Value
)``````
``````Measure =
var Pre_Group2 =
MAXX(
FILTER(
ALL('Report Balance'),
'Report Balance'[Group 2] < MAX('Report Balance'[Group 2])
),
'Report Balance'[Group 2]
)
return
SWITCH(
TRUE(),
MAX('Report Balance'[Sortgroup]) = MAX('Report Balance'[Group 1]), [GROUP_1],
MAX('Report Balance'[Sortgroup]) = MAX('Report Balance'[Group 2]),
CALCULATE(
SUMX( ALLSELECTED('Report Balance'[Sortgroup]), [GROUP_1] ),
FILTER(
ALL('Report Balance'),
'Report Balance'[Subtotal?] = 1 && 'Report Balance'[Sortgroup] < MAX('Report Balance'[Sortgroup]) && 'Report Balance'[Sortgroup] > Pre_Group2
)
),
[Total Balance]
)``````

Hi Winniz,

This is looking good! At the moment i'm on a holiday. When i'm back the first thing i do, is to test this.

I will let you know!

Thank you!

Kind regards

Hey @marsclone ,

your measures don't show any data because the relationship between the tables report balance and accounts balance is not active:

Just activate the relationship with a double click and then "Make this relationship active":

Then your measures will show values:

In general an inactive relationship is more or less like a non existing relationship. The two tables were not connected without an active relationship. Always make sure the relationships fit.

If you need any help please let me know.
If I answered your question I would be happy if you could mark my post as a solution ✔️ and give it a thumbs up 👍

Best regards

Hi Denis,

That the relationship was inactive, i didn't noticed. Thank you for that.
The biggest problem is still the different subtotals that have to be calculated.
At this moment it is a running total, but is not correct.
For the right subtotals please see the screenshot.
I hope you can help me?

Kind regards

@marsclone The groups that have different results seem to be missing in the table "Accounts Balance". At least Assets, Result and Shareholders Equity are missing.

Should that be like this?

Helper IV

These are subtotals calculated according to the "report balance" table.
This method works when creating a P&L, but not for the balance sheet.
I am looking for a method in which the subtotals can be calculated and displayed in this way.

I wonder if this is possible?

@v-kkf-msft Dear Winniz,

Your solution helped me a lot to build a balance for our organization.
Now I would also like to build a P&L in this way.
The question is whether this is possible? Your method is easy to apply, both in Power BI and in Power Pivot.

What might be a problem is that the result of the P&L should be added to the equity to balance the balance sheet?

I hope you can help me with this.

Kind regards,
Marcel
