Power Pivot :: DAX Formula For Extracting A Column Value From Table Based On Certain Conditions

Jul 20, 2015

I'm trying extract a column from the table based on certain Conditions: This is for PowerPivot.

Here is the scenario:

I have a table "tb1" with (project_id, month_end_date, monthly_proj_cost ) and table "tb2" with (project_id, key_member_type, key_member, start_dt_active, end_dt_active).

I would like to extract  Key_member where key_member_type="PM" and active as of tb1(month_end_date).

Is this possible using DAX ?

Power Pivot :: Lookup Inside Calculated Column

Oct 13, 2015

My simplistic data model looks like this: 


Spread Product Sales Channel ..

2 x CB ..
2 y CB …
4 x GFR ..
4 y GFR ..

I need a column with Spread Mapping, which should look like this:

->There are more columns in data model. 
-> Spread for GFR is wrong so it must be mapped to be able to compare with CB

I guess there should be calculated column formula to calculate Spread Mapping. How to do it?

Power Pivot :: DAX - Lookup Scalar Text Value With A Filter In Calculated Column

Jun 23, 2015

In a calculated column I am trying to get a scalar text value from a lookup to another table. This works quite well when getting numerical values with the following formula:

=MinX(Filter(LookUpTable;LookupTable[from]<=MySourceTable[Day] && LookupTable[to]>=MySourceTable[Day]);LookUpTable[numericalColumn])

But as soon as I substitute the numerical column by a string column, #error results.

I also want to mention that the above query yields only one row as a result. It should be simple to return the value of one of the columns but after searching for quite some time, I could not find any function for that.

Power Pivot :: Running Rank Calculated Column That Obeys Context Filters

Jul 13, 2015

I am looking to add a column to one of my tables that displays a running rank of how many times a customer has ordered in a given period. 

I currently have such a column however this column ranks against ALL of the orders that a customer has placed and ignores filters, whereas I need one that ranks based on the filters that are active at any given time. 

The current formula is:

CustOrderCountPersistant=RANKX(FILTER('Q1 Data Set',[k1_customer_id]=EARLIER([k1_customer_id])),[order_id],[order_id],1,DENSE)

For example, if I am looking at a full years worth of data and a customer has placed 10 orders in that period this formula will add a 1 in the column for first order, a 2 for the second and so forth all the way to 10, the last order. 

However it will give me exactly the same results if I filter the data to just one month of that year where they may have order only 2 orders. 

In this scenario I want to have another column with a table that is filter sensitive and would show 1 for the first order and 2 for the second order. 

Now, I do understand that the issue here is probably the FILTER() I have on as, if I understand correctly, that means all other filters are ignored. My attempts at reworking the formula to remove this have been unsuccessful (such as using a CALCUALTE and trying to use filter properties within that forumula).

To explain the context - I want to create a measure that counts how many customers have placed x amount orders in y number of days e.g. how many customers have placed 2 orders in 30 days.

Power Pivot :: How To Apply Min Formula Under New Measure Within A Pivot Table

How can I apply "Min" formula under a "new measure" (calculated field) within a pivot table under Power pivot 2010?Can see that neither does it allow me to apply "min" formula directly "formula box" nor could find any other option.Intent formula: "=Min(1,sum(a:b))" this isn't allowed so all I can do is "=sum(a:b)".

Power Pivot :: Formula For Row Wise Weighted Average

Apr 22, 2015

I have a table in `PowerPivot` which contains the logged data of a traffic control camera mounted on a road. This table is filled the velocity and the number of vehicles that pass this camera during a specific time(e.g. 14:10 - 15:25). Now I want to know that how can I get the average velocity of cars for an specific hour and list them in a separate table with 24 rows(hour 0 - 23) where the second column of each row is the weighted average velocity of that hour?

A sample of my stat_table data is given below:
count    vel          hour  
-----    --------   ----  
133    96.00237    15  
117    91.45705    21  
81      81.90521    6  
2        84.29946    21  
4        77.7841      18  
1        140.8766    17  

[Code] ....

In a separate `PowerPivot` table I have 24 rows and 2 columns(column1 is for hours and column 2 for weighted averages) and when I enter my formula, the whole rows get updated with the same number. My formula is:   

=sumX(FILTER(stat_table, stat_table[hour]=[hour]), stat_table[count] * stat_table[vel])/sumX(FILTER(stat_table, stat_table[hour]=[hour]), stat_table[count])

Power Pivot :: DAX - Min / Max And Average On Calculated Measure

Jun 5, 2015

I have a calculated measure that is "Cost Per Patient:=sum([ActualCost]) / sum(Patients[PatientCount])" and it works fine. I'd like to be able to create another calculated measure based on "cost per patient" that uses min, max and average of "cost per patient" but dax wont let me.

I've read about dax calculate but not sure how to use it in my situation. Here is background on the problem:

There are 2 fact tables, prescription cost and patient count. Both are related by a practice dimension. The practice dimension has a geography hierarchy of county - town - practice. 

The "Cost Per Patient" works fine with the geography hierarchy. By that I mean it shows the correct value when looking at the different levels. For my new calculation, for example looking at the list of counties, I want to use the min, max and average of "Cost Per Patient" of all counties. To break the problem down, I was going to start with creating and testing separate calculated measures for min, max and average and that's where I am stuck.

My understanding of the problem is it's something to do with the context of where the calculation is being made. As I want to perform the min, max and average on all the children of the parent. This article explains it but I can't figure out how to apply it to my situation [URL] ....

Power Pivot :: DAX Calculated Measure For Sum Of Max Values

Sep 21, 2015

We have a client that wants to take the Max value of a count at the Product level, but then for each Brand (Parent of product), sum the Max values for that particular slice.  The example below shows the Max sales per month over the last 6 months. 

Prod1 had it's best month in Month2 (20 units) and Prod2 had its best month in Month4 (30 units).  Brandx should roll up to 50 units.  Can DAX handle this in a single Calc Measure?

Brandx          50
    Prod1        20
    Prod2        30
Brandy          60
    Prod5        40
    Prod6        20

Power Pivot :: Calculated Measure Maxing Out RAM

Nov 6, 2015

I have a calculated measure in Power Pivot that takes too long to run that it would max out my RAM when running it in Excel 2016 (for some reason it actually manages to run in Excel 2013 but still takes a long time). How to optimise the measure? I have shared the measure below. it is the Unique Leads (MTD) measure that I need to run in a pivot table that is broken down by everyday in a month. The Unique Leads (MTD) measure basically calculates the month-to-date unique leads where a unique lead is defined as an email address that has not appeared in the 'application' table thus far in a particular month.

Unique Leads (MTD):=[CumulativeUniqueApps]-CALCULATE([CumulativeUniqueApps], filter(allexcept('application', Affiliate[Affiliate], 'Lead Type'[Loan Type]), CALCULATE([CumulativeUniqueApps], filter('application', EARLIER([Date])< [Date]))))

CumulativeUniqueApps:=calculate(DISTINCTCOUNT([Email]), filter(allexcept('application', Affiliate[Affiliate], 'Lead Type'[Loan Type]), CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT([Email]), filter('application', earlier([Date])<=[Date]))))

Power Pivot :: Where Is The Calculated Fields / Measures Area

This is so trivial but I cannot figure out where the calculated fields/measures area is in the PP window. Is there something to toggle it on and off? I used PP in Excel 2013 before and the area I'm talking about was at the bottom of the PP window. Now I'm with a new company who has Excel 2010 so I downloaded the PP add-in for Excel 2010. It is version 10.50.4000.0. This add-in does not have a calculated fields/measures are at the bottom of the PP window. Is it just a matter of 2010 vs. 2013 or is there a way to turn the frame area I'm talking about on?

Power Pivot :: Measure Calculated On Leaf Level And Rolled Up

Jun 19, 2015

I have the following scenario. I want to apply some calculations on different levels and then aggregate them up.

First measure calculates at Productgroup,color,store,size level

ProductGroup Color Store Size Amount Quantity

Measure:Amount*Quantity   (ProductGroup, Color, Store, Size)

A Blue Store A L 100 6 600
A Red Store A S 150 4 600
A Green Store A M 160 7 1120
B Blue Store A L 300 3 900

[Code] ........

The other measure ignores color

ProductGroup Store Size Amount Quantity

Measure:Amount*Quantity   (ProductGroup, Store, Size)

A Store A L 100 6 600
A Store A S 150 4 600
A Store A M 160 7 1120
B Store A L 640 15 9600

[Code] ...

Ignoring that gives another figure for productgroup B. In the pivot, I should see both measures at whatever attribute, except for the measure that excludes color will be null if tried split on color

ProductGroup Amount Quantity (ProductGroup, Color, Store,   Size) (ProductGroup, Store, Size)
A 410 17 2320 2320
B 640 15 2820 9600
C 170 5 430 430

How should the two measure be defined:

Measure (ProductGroup,Color,Store,Size)
Measure (ProductGroup,Store,Size)

Power Pivot :: Using StartDate And EndDate From Timeline In Calculated Measures?

Jul 31, 2015

For some of my calculations it is mandatory to get the first and the last date, filtered by the slicer type "timeline".

This works well as long as the date is not used on rows or columns ...

As soon as I'm using theDate within the rows this very simplistic dax measure doesn't work ...

I'm wondering how to determine the StartDate (from the timeline) and the EndDate (from the timeline) when "thedate" is actively contributing to the filtercontext.

In my opinion it is not another example of the "event in progress" situation, due to the fact that start and end dates are actively selected by the user and can not be derived from within the date model.

Power Pivot :: How To Reference A Column Based On Row Value

Sep 4, 2015

I have two tables shown below and I wish to add a calculated column to Table 1.

Table1                                      Table2
ID    Activity                             Activity 1     Activity 2   Activity 3    etc    etc   etc   Total
1    Activity 1                           values         values       values                                  Total value
2    Activity 2                           values         values       values                                  Total value
3    Activity 3                           values         values       values                                  Total value

I want each row in the new column to show the corresponding activity divided by the sum of the total. So in the row with Activity 3 I want the formula SUM(Table2[Activity 3])/SUM(Table2[Total]). Also the number of activities will vary.

I am actually wanting to calculate a more complicated formula which calculates the correlation .

Power Pivot :: SPC Average Of A Count Of Text Column

Dec 1, 2015

This is an SPC chart controlled by a slicer that operates a powerpivot table. This is then copied (by cell formula) into a "normal" table where the average, UCL, LCL and Erlang are calculated which are just basic calculations involving average and standard deviation. To make it work the values in the Average, UCL,LCL and Erlang must be repeated all the way down the table to create the chart. In the current format it works well and using a standard table keeps the chart range dynamic.

However this is a very clunky solution involving repeating the data tables in excel. I need to create dozens of charts and it will get large and slow.I would like to create the whole thing in a powerpivot table using measures so i can use powerpivot charts and ultimately powerBI. The data column PasID is a text column so I need a measure that calculates the "count of PasID" for each day(the row labels) and then repeats that value down a whole column in the same way the standard table does. I couldn't figure out how to get the correct number repeat down the whole column, which measures to use,Whether to create calculated columns in the data model or any of it. SO I need to be able to get a count of a text column then display the average of that count in a second column all the way down.

Power Pivot :: How To Create Incrementing Sub Counter For (sort By Column) Purposes

Nov 16, 2015

I have a table ComponentPeriod. In it we have the combination of a component (e.g. A,B,C ) and a period (2014 Q1, 2014 Q2, 2014 January etc)I want the periods to be in descending order (2015 Q4, 2015 Dec, 2015 Nov, 2015 Oct, 2015 Q3 ... etc) and so I need to create a sequential number series to allow this to happen (as we can only order in the client tools by a single column - and so I guess the technique I'm looking for is used a lot to produce these types of "order by" columns)

I have done this in the past using

Period_Sequence =
, Period[Start_Date] <= earlier(Period[Start_Date])
&& Period[Duration_String] = earlier(Period[Duration_String])

Which was fine when I was referring to a table where Periods where distinct directly but now I have denormalised this for ComponentPeriod so I need something a little more sophisticated Whats the best way to get a sequence with perhaps some partitions in across a subset of distinct columns (I guess from SUMMARIZE or similar)

E.g. I want

Period_Name, Type, Sequence
2015 Q4, Quarter, 1
2015 Dec, Month, 2
2015 Nov, Month, 3
2015 Oct, Month, 4
2015 Q3, Quarter, 5
2015 Sep, Month, 6

even though there may be multiple records in ComponentPeriod that have the period 2015 Q4, but I want them all to have the value Sequence value of 1? I've got as far as:

Period_Sequence Desc =
(countrows(summarize(ComponentPeriod, ComponentPeriod[Period_End_Date]))
( ComponentPeriod
, ComponentPeriod[Period_End_Date] >= earlier(ComponentPeriod[Period_End_Date])

But this doesn't distinguish between the different types. I need an equivalent of the t-sql -

row_number() over (order by Period_End_Date desc, case when 'P3M' then 1 when 'P1M' then 2 end asc

Power Pivot :: Power Query Error Expression / Cannot Convert The Value To Type Text

Jul 20, 2015

I've imported a number of excel sheets into a Power Query Table. All seems to appear ok until I load the data. Of the 15k rows around 2k have a similar error where it cannot convert an integer to type string as below example

Expression.Error: We cannot convert the value 40 to type Text.

The columns in question are all of integer type, I've looked through the M query and there is no conversion to string taking placeThe values where we don't get the error are also integers hence the intriguing question is why does the error occur on a subset and not the others. I suspect there is a limit to the number of errors also somewhere internally M query is converting the column to text for some reason.

Power Pivot :: IF In Power Query Statement - Converting Text To Numbers

Nov 18, 2015

Slow loading issue with an if statement. In the raw data the field [Location] is a text field e.g. 0010. I have a parameterised query that get a Location_Value from Excel and passes it to the PQ query using:

#"Filtered Rows1" = Table.SelectRows(#"Removed Other Columns", each ([SalesMode] = 0) and ([SalesType] = 0) and ([Location] = Location_Value))

This works fine if you chose a single location.  However I wanted to be able to select all locations and text is horrible to work with so in PQ I used the change type function to change the location column into whole numbers. I changed excel to also pass a number as Location_Value.   I was therefore surprised when the same query took 2.5 times longer to refresh????

My PQ now looks like this

  #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Removed Other Columns",{{"Location", Int64.Type}}),
    #"Filtered Rows1" = Table.SelectRows(#"Changed Type", each ([SalesMode] = 0) and ([SalesType] = 0) and ([Location] = Location_Value))

I'm wondering if I need to do something to the ([Location] = Location_Value) bit as maybe it still thinks [Loation] is text and it is trying to compare it to a number. I st assumed the step above meant that [Location] was now a number, but maybe you still have wrap it with some kind of VALUES or TEXT function?
