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 :: Unable To Refresh Report Data When Send To Other Member In Team

May 28, 2015

I am using excel 2010 and SQL server as a data source. When I create a report with the User name "demo_user" which has db_writer access, and mail it to the colleague , he could not refresh the data with the "demo_user" credentials and apparently its throwing user name or password invalid. The one who created only could be able to refresh the data.

What should I do If other people want to refresh the data? How could I fix this issue? We are using SQL server 2012 and excel 2010 powerpivot.

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 :: Aggregating Time Periods In Cube-member / Cube-value Formulas?

Aug 23, 2015

I am just starting out using CUBEMEMBER/CUBEVALUE formulas in excel linked into a sql olap db - using this method for some custom reports where pivot tables are not suitable.
The time dimension values include Months, Quarters and Years and the CUBEMEMBER formulas like

=CUBEMEMBER("OLAPCUBE","[Time].[Time].[Year].&[2015].&[1].&[1]") work fine - 1st quarter 1st month etc.

Is there a straightforward notation to aggregate months or do I need to use a plus sign to add a number of CUBEMEMBER formulas together.In other words - Is there an easier way of for say jan to july 2015 totals than

=CUBEMEMBER("OLAPCUBE","[Time].[Time].[Year].&[2015].&[1]") + (CUBEMEMBER("OLAPCUBE","[Time].[Time].[Year].&[2015].&[2]")) + (CUBEMEMBER("OLAPCUBE","[Time].[Time].[Year].&[2015].&[3].&[7]"))

I haven't tested this but have assumed it works but a bit long and clumsy.

Power Pivot :: Dates MTD Function And No Row Data

Oct 20, 2015

I have a DATESMTD function which is not working.  This is what is happening, if there is no row data for the month it creates a month to date total similar to the year to date total instead of zero.  See below my formula:

MTDSUM:=CALCULATE(SUM('Combined Years Dataset'[Net]),DATESMTD('Combined Years Dataset'[Period2]),'Date'[date])

Period 2 is a column with dates (end of monthdates) in a table called Combined Years Dataset.

So, if I have $200.00 data for Aug and no data for Sept, the system puts in 200.00 as the month to date  for Sept instead of zero.  What can I do to make the system insert zero in the month to date column instead of the $200.00.  What am I doing wrong in the formula.

Power Pivot :: Incremental Load Excel File

Jun 4, 2015

We have build a powerpivotmodel that uses a couple of datasources. The user extracts on monthly base an excel file with 20 samples (randomly) from the model to check some aspects of the input. He can put Yes or No into a column if he agrees or not and fill in a remark field. Next this excel file is loaded back into the powerpivot model (in a nightly batch) and the Yes/No field and the remark field are added to the original data. If the user refreshes his excel sample file from the pivot, the remark and YN field will be filled with the values he added. So far so good. One moth later when he extracts the file for a new month a problem arises. Since the excel file only has data for the new month, when the PP-model is reloaded the data for the previous month will be lost. So we need some sort of incremental load for the excel file. Is that possible and is this the best way to handle this situation?

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 :: DAX Function ALLSELECTED Doesn't Refresh When Using A Date Hierarchy For Rows

Apr 3, 2015

I've encountered an issue where the ALLSELECTED function works fine unless I use a date hierarchy, i.e. year, quarter, month, date, for the rows in a pivot and then use a year slicer, select one or more years individually, and the clear the filter on the slicer.  The year(s) that I selected in the slicer remain at 100% in the pivot instead of returning to the subtotals for the unfiltered slicer.

This only occurs when I use a calendar hierarchy for rows and a date field for the slicer, either from the hierarchy or a regular date field.Below are images of the normal behavior and then the result after following the steps above. Can't figure out why the calendar hierarchy is causing the issue since it works for all other time functions, etc., and follows best practices such as contiguous dates, etc.

Power Pivot :: LY Sales - Function Throws Error When Selecting Periods In Different Years

May 21, 2015

I have created data model where I'm taking several sources of Point of Sale data (multiple retailers) and combing them using Power Pivot and a custom calendar. We get data retailer direct, which is mostly in weeks, and data from IRI which is in four week buckets. This does not allow me to use the date intelligence DAX functions. I'm brand new to DAX and my experience starts and ends with Excel. (Diagram view and link to file to come after account verification) .

The DAX code for calculating LY Sales is:

    [Sales $],
    FILTER (
        ALL ( dCalendar ),
            = VALUES ( dCalendar[IRIYearNumber] ) - 1

[Code] ....

The filters are to prevent items not on the item table from showing on the report, and the customer filter is to prevent all the sales being rolled together as and extra line (with blank customer) on the report. 

The error happens when I select two periods that are in different years. When I select the 13 periods on 2014 all is well. But when I add a period from 2015 it throws the error below;

ERROR - CALCULATION ABORTED: Calculation error in measure 'dProducts'[LY Sales $]: A table of multiple values was supplied where a single value was expected.

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 :: 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

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 :: 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])))
