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

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 :: 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 :: 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] ....

In Gallery view, most of the reports show the "Open New Excel Workbook", the "Create Power View Report", and the "Manage Data Refresh" buttons on the right side of the report list. Why would some reports not have these buttons available? In the attached image you can see one report with the buttons and one without the buttons.

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 :: How To Set Refresh For Excel File Uploaded In Power Bi

Sep 9, 2015

I have opened an account in [URL] and taken the 60 days trial for power bi pro. I've developed power pivot and generated power views in share point 2013. But, I'm new to Power BI desktop. I have created a report in power BI desktop and published to [URL]. Also, I have uploaded an excel file directly to [URL] and created the report from the workspace available there itself and pinned the report to dashboard also. Everything is fine till this. But, I need to refresh the file which I have uploaded. I have some dummy data in excel sheet.

ZipCode State ZipName

2345 AA AA
456 BB BB
6787 CC CC

 This has been created as a table and then added to data model. So, power pivot has been created for the same. Then I have uploaded this file to [URL] site. But, I'm getting an error message while trying to schedule refresh for the same.

"You cannot schedule refresh for this dataset because it does not contain data model connections. You cannot schedule refresh on worksheet connections or linked tables. To schedule refresh the data must be loaded into the data model."

How can I create a data model connection? How can I schedule refresh for an excel file like this?

Power Pivot :: Power Query Conditional Text Replacement

Jul 16, 2015

I'm looking to replace text in a given column given a set of conditions in the other columns. Please see below the M query in the advance editor and in particular the bold text. Here I've created a new entry that would appear in the query applied steps window in the power query editor that I have called "Replace Values". The logic is if Data.Column4 column equals "London" then replace null values in Data.Column5 with London. However when I save the query below I get the error 

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

I plan to change the expression to test for multiple conditions however I need to get the basic expression working first. The other frustration i had with the "if" statement is it had to have an else even though I didn't require it, am i doing something wrong here?

FullFilePath = "C:PermanentDwellings.xlsx",
Source = Excel.Workbook(File.Contents(FullFilePath)),
    #"Expanded Data" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(Source, "Data", {"Column1", "Column10", "Column11", "Column12", "Column13", "Column14", "Column15", "Column16",

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:

1) Production data with column headers: Key, Facility, Line, Time, Output
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.

Power Pivot :: ALL DAX Function Not Overriding Filter On Pivot Table

Oct 14, 2015

I have a simple pivot table (screenshot below) that has two variables on it: one for entry year and another for 6 month time intervals. I have very simple DAX functions that count rows to determine the population N (denominator), the number of records in the time intervals (numerator) and the simple percent of those two numbers.

The problem that I am having is that the function for the population N is not overriding the time interval on the pivot table when I use an ALL function to do so. I use ALL in other very simple pivot tables to do the same thing and it works fine.

The formula for all three are below, but the one that is the issue is the population N formula. Why ALL would not work, any other way to override the time period variable on the pivot table.

Population N (denominator):
Records in time interval (numerator):

Power Pivot :: Displaying Cumulating Numbers In A Pivot Table When There Is No Value

Mar 11, 2015

I have simple pivot table (below screenshot with info redacted) that displays a population number ("N" below), this is the denominator, a cumulative numerator number (below "#") and a simple cumulative percent that just divides the numerator by the denominator. It cumulates from top to bottom. The numerator and percent are cumulative using the below functions. There are two problems with the numerator and percent:

1. When there is not a number for the numerator, there is no value displayed for both the numerator and the percent..There should be a zero displayed for both values.
2. When there has been a prior number for the numerator and percent (for a prior month interval) but there is no number for the numerator in the current month interval, the prior month number and percent are not displayed in the current month interval--see the 3rd yellow line, this should display "3" and "16.7%" from the second yellow line.Here is the formula for the numerator:

=CALCULATE(count(s1Perm1[entity_id]),FILTER(ALL(s1Perm1[ExitMonthCategory]),s1Perm1[ExitMonthCategory] <= MAX(s1Perm1[ExitMonthCategory])))
Here is the formula for the percent:
=(CALCULATE(countrows(s1Perm1),FILTER(ALL(s1Perm1[ExitMonthCategory]),s1Perm1[ExitMonthCategory] <= MAX(s1Perm1[ExitMonthCategory]))))/(CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(s1Perm1),ALL(s1Perm1[Exit],s1Perm1[ExitMonthCategory])))

Power Pivot :: Slicers Won't Print In Power BI

Apr 18, 2015

One big reason why we have turned to Power BI for Office 365 is to share Power Pivot models with our senior executives who all use Macs.

While they have been able to successfully view the Power Pivot models and interact with the Slicers in Power BI, they have not been able to print the reports. We thought it was a Mac issue but it's happening on PCs too. There doesn’t seem to be a way to resize the report so that all columns print. So we then tried to click on the tiny button located in the bottom right corner that says “View Full-Size Workbook.” The file then opens up in Excel Online. Then when we click on the printer icon, we see the report but the slicer becomes invisible. When printing, all columns do show up however the slicer is invisible.

Power Pivot :: Measures Not Reflected In Pivot Table

Sep 18, 2015

I have data in my Powerpivot window which was generated by a sql query. This data includes a field named 'Cost' and every row shows a value for 'Cost' greater than zero. The problem is that when I display this data in the pivot table all entries for Cost display as $0. At first I thought that maybe Cost was set to a bogus data type (such as 'text) but it is set to ''Decimal Number' so that's not the problem. 

What is happening and how do I fix it so that my pivot table reflects the values for 'Cost'?

Power Pivot :: Printing From Pivot Table With Slicers

Apr 13, 2015

I am using excel 2010 and creating pivot table from Power Pivot.  I created a pivot table with department slicers.  All is good, the problem I am having is whilst in an unfiltered position (ALL) of the slicers (departments) I get 200 pages, now when I  click on a given department with say 10 pages, I still get the same 200 pages with the first 10 pages showing the data from the clicked department and 190 blank pages.

All I want is to get a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) of what is on the screen as my print, but I am getting extra blank pages right after the data.  How do I resolve this.

Below are the steps I go thru to print 

1. Select slicers in unfiltered position (ALL)
2. Select entire pivot table
3. Select Page layout  and select print area.
4.  Save
5. Click on Print Preview to preview the print
6. Click on a given department in the slicer and repeat item 5, but this gives me blank pages after the data.

Do I need any other step?
