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 :: 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 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 :: How To Convert Measures As Text To Actual Measures

Jul 5, 2015

I have an old model that unfortunately had to be re-establish. 

In order to save time, I thought that I can export all my measures and paste it as measures in my new model. 

I used the following technique to export the measures from the old file: [URL] ....

How to use the output and create the identical measures in my new model, without the need to manually write each one of them?

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 :: Parameterized FYTD And LFYTD Measures

Jul 10, 2015

is there a way to create parameterized FYTD and LFYTD measures and avoid hardcoding fiscal year end date in the DATESYTD function ?

I have tried using both VALUES and LOOKUPVALUE to retrieve fiscal year end date inside DATESYTD, but it apparantly only accepts a literal.I have created a Calendar table with e.g. FiscalYearIndex which is 0 for current fiscal year dates and was thinking somthing with CALCULATE and a filtered Calendar table based on FiscalYearIndex = 0.

Power Pivot :: How To Stop The Grid From Re-ordering The Measures

Jul 6, 2015

I have a PowerPivot table with lots of measures.

How do I stop the PowerPivot Grid from re-ordering the measures?

This is a very significant issue from my perspective since currently everytime I open the PowerPivot model the ordering of the display of the design of the measures is changed every time the PowerPivot model grid is opened.

Power Pivot :: Define SSAS Tabular Measures In Batch?

Nov 19, 2015

We have an Excel PowerPivot model that we are trying to move to SSAS Tabular. The model is complex and has over 300 measures. To group these in Excel, we pasted in dummy tables and defined the measures in logical groupings. Now when we are migrating to SSAS, we have to delete the pasted tables --that have ALL of the measures, in order for the import to work successfully.

How to migrate the model? We have a nice report of all of the measures from DAX Studio, but I am not looking forward to manually re-entering 300 measures through the user interface. Is there any way to define measures in batch? Or is there a way to change the pasted table to a file so the import will work? Will the import work in SSAS 2016?

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]))))

My simplistic data model looks like this:

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Date Fields Do Not Allow Value Filtering

Sep 8, 2015

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.

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).

Problems With Filters/Drillthrough/calculated Measures

May 20, 2008

Wondering if anyone has any work arounds.

We have a cube that has financial data in it. There are report actions on cells. I want them to be able to drill through the the supporting data stored in the fact table and all the measures I am showing are calculated measures.

Users connect to this cube from Excel 2007. If they use a "Filter" in Excel and do not select "All" or "One" of the members of the filter hierarchy, then the action dissapears. Microsoft explained this is because that cell then has a calculated cordinate and they can't determine the action to perform.

Has anyone experienced a need to do this? Can you provide me alternatives?



The functionality I am looking for is not available in the BIDS either (Well it is to a point--if you select the first 2, 3, 4...members in the filter, the action will still appear. It only reads the first one however. If you select the members starting with any but the first, the action disappears).

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?
