Sum per month Power Query

Hey Experts!

 

I'm stuck on the followng Power Query Problem, I would like the sum per month as a new column (see example below)...

 

MonthDateSalesWhat I Need
Jan01/01/2022510
Jan01/01/2022510
Feb01/02/202312
Reb 01/02/202312

 

My tables much larger than this with more columns but follows the same principle but needs to be done in Power Query.

 

I can't use group by aswell because I need the other columns.

 

How can I achieve this in Power Query? Any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂 

 

Many Thanks,

 

Taylor

  • Group by Month/Year
  • Advanced Aggregation:
    • Sum of Sales
    • All
  • Then re-expand. Since you havethe All column, you will restore the other columns
let

//change next lineto reflect data source
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table4"]}[Content],
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Month", type text}, {"Date", type date}, {"Sales", Int64.Type}}),

//Add year-month column in case sales dates are not always on same day of month
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "YearMonth", each Date.ToText([Date],"yyyyMM"), type text),

//Group by year-month
// Then aggregate for All and Sum
    #"Grouped Rows" = Table.Group(#"Added Custom", {"YearMonth"}, {
        {"All", each _, type table [Month=nullable text, Date=nullable date, Sales=nullable number, YearMonth=text]}, 
        {"Monthly Sales", each List.Sum([Sales]), type nullable number}
        }),

//Remove the yearmonth column
    #"Removed Columns" = Table.RemoveColumns(#"Grouped Rows",{"YearMonth"}),

//Re-expand previous columns
    #"Expanded All" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(#"Removed Columns", "All", {"Month", "Date", "Sales"})
in
    #"Expanded All"

Hi @Ttaylor9870 ,

Provide another way to think about it.

List.Sum(Table.SelectRows(PreviousStepName,(x)=>x[Month]=[Month])[Sales])

vcgaomsft_0-1692256181619.png

all steps.

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45W8krMU9JRMtQ31DcyMDICMk2VYnVwCrulJoGFjUDCxiAmkvChBQaG+gbIUrEA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Month = _t, Date = _t, Sales = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Month", type text}, {"Date", type date}, {"Sales", Int64.Type}}),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Sales Total", each List.Sum(Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type",(x)=>x[Month]=[Month])[Sales]))
in
    #"Added Custom"
