  • Question

  • Hi,

    My base data is in the below format :

    Payer Region            Receiver Region            Amount Paid / Received

    Asia                         EMEA                           30

    Asia                         NAM                             20

    Asia                         Asia                             50

    EMEA                      NAM                             10

    EMEA                      Asia                              30

    EMEA                      EMEA                            60

    There are two transactions of 100 each. The desired output is the calculation of Net amount by region.

    In the above example, i need the following output :

    Asia : -100 +50 + 30 = -20

    EMEA : -100 + 30 + 60 = -10

    NAM : 30 + 10 = 30

    Hence, this is net Zero at total level, just allocation within regions. This is just two examples, my base data goes into granular level wherein i've details by country and by client which i need to show in the output.

    Kindly help!!

    Thank you!

  • Excel 365 Pro Plus with PowerPivot and Power Query.
    Granular level will be far more difficult.

  • thank you! Can we alter the base data in a way that will help us in Power BI? I need build an interactive dashboard analyzing attribution by geography and by client.

    Thank you!

  • Hi Raj. Power Query in Excel is the same technology underlying the "Get Data" features in PBIDesktop, and PowerPivot is the basis of the Modeling features in PBIDesktop. So you should be able to migrate the solution Herbert created over to Power BI pretty easily.

    In fact, there's a feature in PBIDesktop designed to help you do just that.

  • Hi, i'm sorry i'm not able to get the desired output with the steps shown. Is there a way to kindly elaborate further?<o:p></o:p>

    What i did till now :<o:p></o:p>

    1. Grouped the base data in another table with Payer Geography and Amount<o:p></o:p>

    2. Grouped the base data in another table with Receiver Geography and Amount<o:p></o:p>

    3. Trying to append these tables/queries into a new table as shown in the snapshot but there are a lot of null values and the output is into 4 columns, two each from payer and receiver<o:p></o:p>

    4. I've one more query which has the Geography which will be the base to then advance group the Paid and Received tables. However, need help to proceed with this as well.<o:p></o:p>

    Kindly help!<o:p></o:p>

    Thank you.<o:p></o:p>
