Power Pivot :: How To Add Calculated Fields To Every Query In Data Model

Nov 12, 2015

I have created 60 queries and added them to my data model in Power Pivot/Excel 2016. I created some calculated fields for one of my queries but I would LOVE to know how to just copy these across all queries in the data model instead of having to create them in the data model for one query at a time. That will take forever.

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

Jun 5, 2015

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 :: How To Change Data Source For Model

Feb 25, 2014

I have an Excel 2013 file with lots of DAX connected to an Azure database. I'd like to reuse all that work by changing the data source for the PowerPivot model to a different database which is an exact copy (just empty) on the same server, but Excel won't let me. In PowerPivot I can change the database connection, the user ID and password as well as the connections name. When opening each table properties (inside PowerPivot model) the new connection is used and all old data is removed, but as soon as I refresh using Existing connections, both from PowerPivot or from the Excel Data tab, the old connection is used and old data is reloaded.

If I use Existing connections from inside PowerPivot, I can se that the new connection is highlighted and has the correct variable, but I think maybe that one is run first, then the old one is run afterwards (or something like that).

On the Excel Data tab, I can see that the old connection is the only one Excel itself seems to know about, but I cannot change anything there as it's read-only.

There must be a way to change this. Even with copy and paste it would take me days to recreate this Excel file from scratch and it would be a serious flaw and reduction of usability for PowerPivot.

Power Pivot :: Structural Data Model Changes In Data Source Leads To Errors

Oct 12, 2015

I've question about how to handle structural datamodel changes in a datasource of PowerPivot. Suppose I'm developing a starmodel in SQL Server and sometimes a datatype changes or a name of a field changes in a table. It seems to me that PowerPivot handle this not gracefully as Analysis MD does (mostly). I received an error because of a wrong fieldname or even no error when a dattype changes in PowerPivot. Is this common or do I something wrong here. Does this mean that every time the datamodel changes the PowerPivot should be recreated? Or am I missing the clue here?

Power Pivot :: Deleting Data Content From Data Model

Sep 10, 2013

I don't know if the question has been nailed down.  Aside from deleting tables, can we delete the *content* of data within the tables.  It doesn't seem crazy that, if you can pull in data from a feed then you should be able to remove the content out again (without also destroying the user's meta-data work ).  Reasons for this include:

- Security (a user may not have rights to see *my* data and should go refresh their own)
- Size (workbook doesn't need to have GB's of irrelevant data saved to disk in a workbook if it was just useful during development phase to a pre-production data feed)
- Bad data (pre-production data feed is not good data)
- User-friendliness (data feed was refreshed 2 years ago and workbook was saved to file server.  Users shouldn't be presented with irrelevant data, but should get empty pivot tables until they go do their refresh)

Obviously Excel internally knows how to clear out PowerPivot data, given the prompt shown here: [URL] ....

But how does a user initiate this on their own (corruption aside)?

Previous time this question was asked, without a real resolution: [URL] ....

Power Pivot :: Building A Model Based On Multinational Model With Different Languages?

Oct 19, 2015

I need to develop a language specific dwh, meaning that descriptions of products are available from a SAP system in multiple languages. English is the most important language and that is the standard. But, there are also requirements of countries that wants productdescriptions in their language. 

Productnr Productdesc Language
1            product       EN
1            produkt       DE

One option is to column the descriptions, but that is not very elegantly. I was thinking of using bridge tables to model this but you have to always select a language in a filter (I think)..

I'm thinking of a technical solution, such that when a user logs on, the language is determined and a view determines whether to pick a certain product table specific for a certain language. But then I don't have the opportunity to interchange the different language specific fields in a report (or in my case PowerPivot).

Power Pivot :: Not Showing Data Because It Is Not Clear How These Fields Are Related

Apr 1, 2015

Purpose - relate Server to Software, and Server to App and display it in power view.Current State - I am able to display that Server/Software and Server/App combos separately in power view.  However when I add Server/Software/App it throws the warning as seen below.  This leads me to believe the relationships aren't transitive so to speak.

Supporting Info - v_gs_installedsoftware is the software table.  It relates to v_r_system which is the server table through resource id.  The software table can have many rows with the same resource id, however the server table only has unique resourceids (think of it as a server can have many software products installed).  Table1 is the application table, it relates to the v_r_system table through the resourceid.  Each server from the server table can have many applications that it actually plays a role in (think of a web server that hosts multiple websites for different business units).

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]))))

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

-> 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 :: 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 :: 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.

Is there any way of updating these changes to the model other than making these changes manually or is there some way of doing the following type of operation in PowerPivot; -

Power Pivot :: Connecting To A Tabular Model - Combining With Excel Calculations

Jun 16, 2015

how to combine measures and fields coming from an analytical model (tabular) along with some Excel calculations. Basically I want to provide users with a simple report (to be displayed in SharePoint Excel services) containing charts and slicers. The data comes from a tabular model, and most of the calculations are in the model as well.However there is some little tweaking that must be done. For example I might need additional calculated columns, but I don't feel the need to modify the tabular model for that. I was wondering if I could do this within Excel as well -- but without having to bring all the data through a pivot table, then manipulate it and then show it on the report. So to be clear I do not want any pivot tables lying around, even if on a hidden sheet.

I noticed that when selecting a pivot chart in Excel, at the ribbon menu under "PIVOTCHART TOOLS"/"ANALYSE" there is a group of buttons named "Calculations". One of them is named OLAP Tools.Is it fair to assume that these options will allow me to create new measures at the Excel side, without affecting my tabular model?

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?

Power Pivot :: Date Fields Do Not Allow Value Filtering

I have an Excel 2010 Pro pivot table that uses a Power Pivot view sourced to a SQL Server 2012 SQL view.  This view contains multiple date fields, and when I attempt to use the 'Value Filter' on one of these, the data is not filtering.  The data type in the SQL view is a date.

After attempting to set a Value Filter, and seeing that the filtering didn't work, when I go back to the Value Filter criteria (in my case, I used 'Greater Than' option), the date value that I plugged in to filter has been replaced with a numeric value.

Expression.Error: There is an unknown identifier. Did you use the [field] shorthand for a _[field] outside of an 'each' expression?

Power Pivot :: One Slicer To Control Two Pivot Tables That Have Different Source Data And Common Key

Jul 8, 2015

I have two data tables:

2) Costs data with column headers: Key, Site, Cost Center, Time, Cost

The tables have a common key named obviously as Key. The data looks like this:


I would like to have two pivot tables which I can filter with ONE slicer based on the column Key. The first pivot table shows row labels Facility, Line and column labels Time. Value field is Output. The second pivot table shows row labels Site, Cost Center, and column lables Time. Value field is Cost.How can I do this with Power Pivot? I tried by linking both tables above to a table with unique Keys in PowerPivot and then creating a PivotTable where I would have used the Key from the Keys table.
