## Power bi calculated column

Calculated columns allow you to add new data to tables that already exist in your model. However, instead of querying and reading the value from the data source into the new column, create a Data Analysis Expression (DAX) expression that defines the value in the column. In Power BI Desktop, calculated columns are created using the new column feature in Report View.

The calculated column you create in Power BI appears like any other field in the Fields list, but with a special icon that indicates that the value is the result of a formula. Like any other field, you can give the column any name you like and add it to your report visualization.

## Power bi calculated column vs measure

Here we will see the difference between Power BI calculated column vs the measure.

Calculated column | Measure |
---|---|

The calculated column returns multiple results | It returns a single result |

The calculation is done row by row | The calculation is done in response to filter and field changes in the report |

It needs memory to store | It doesn’t need memory to store |

The calculation is done when the report is refreshed or when it is created. | Get calculated when added to the report through something like a card visual |

It increases the file size | It doesn’t increase the file size |

One can see the calculated column result in the Data view | You can see the Measure view when you add to the visual. |

It does not provide a weighted average of a column | It provides a weighted average |

## Power bi calculated column if

## Power bi calculated column moving average

Here we will see an example Power BI Calculated column moving average.

The moving averages approach carries the average of the time series’ most current k data values. It’s called moving because it replaces the oldest observation in the equation with the most recent value and calculates a new average every time a new observation becomes available for the time series.

As a result, the duration over which the average is calculated shifts with each passing duration.

For example, we will use the below table and we will calculate the moving average of 3 months.

- In Power BI Desktop, go to the Modelling tab, and select the New column from the ribbon.

## Power BI calculated column use relationship

Here we will see an example of the Power bi calculated column UseRelationship().

For example, we will use the below table Sales and Date table (calculated table), to get the Year value (from the Date table) based on the Order Date and Delivery date.

Sales table

The date table is a calculated table, with the below formula I have created a Calculated Date table in Power BI.

```
Date =
ADDCOLUMNS(
CALENDARAUTO (),
"Month", FORMAT ( [Date], "mmmm" ),
"Month Number", MONTH ( [Date] ),
"Year", "CY " & YEAR ( [Date] )
)
```

So both the table have 2 relationships, i.e.:

- Date column ( Date table) -> Order Date (Sales table) (Active relationship)
- Date column (Date table) -> Delivery Date (Sales table) (InActive relationship)

To get the Year from the Date table for the Order date, it is easy to get in the calculated column as well as in measure because the relationship is active so we can use Related () or we can use UseRelationship inside the Calculate() as filter context. The UseRelationsip () lets you awhile change the active and inactive relationship.

`OrderYear = RELATED ( 'Date'[Year] )`

`Order Year = CALCULATE (VALUES ( 'Date'[Year] ),USERELATIONSHIP ( 'Date'[Date], Sales[OrderDate]))`

But if you want to get the Delivery year column from the Date table, in the measure we can easily achieve the Delivery year, by using UseRelationship, even if the relationship is inactive, we cannot get the same result in the calculated column because Calculate() performs context transition before UseRelationship () taking into an account. So after the context transition happened, later UseRelationship changed into an active relationship, as a consequence the UseRelationship() is ineffective.

`DeliveryYear = CALCULATE (VALUES ( 'Date'[Year] ),USERELATIONSHIP ( Sales[DeliveryDate],'Date'[Date]))`

The solution is by removing the Filter on the Date column data or we can use LOOKUPVALUE(), without relying on the relationship.

```
DeliveryYear = CALCULATE (VALUES ( 'Date'[Year] ),CALCULATETABLE( Sales,
USERELATIONSHIP ( Sales[DeliveryDate],'Date'[Date]), REMOVEFILTERS('Date')
))
```

```
DeliveryYear = CALCULATE (VALUES ( 'Date'[Year] ),CALCULATETABLE( Sales,
USERELATIONSHIP ( Sales[DeliveryDate],'Date'[Date]), REMOVEFILTERS('Date')
))
```

This is an example of a Power BI calculated column use relationship.

## Power BI calculated column based on a measure

Here we will see an example of a Power Bi calculated column based on a measure.

For example, we will use the below table and we will create a measure to calculate the Total revenue. Then we will create a calculated column to get the total revenue based on customers.

- In Power BI Desktop, go to the Modelling tab -> click on the New Measure from the ribbon.
- Then write the below formula in the formula box:

`Total Revenue = SUM('Table B'[Revenue])`

- Next, from the Modeling tab -> click on the New column from the ribbon.
- Then write the below formula in the formula box:

```
TotalRevenue for Customer = CALCULATE([Total Revenue],
FILTER(ALL('Table B'),
'Table B'[Customer No.]=EARLIER('Table B'[Customer No.])
)
)
```

- Now you can see a new column added to the table with measures in Power BI.

This is an example of a Power BI calculated column based on a measure.

## Power bi calculated column based on another column

Here we will see an example of a Power BI calculated column based on another column.

For example, we have two sample tables that are not in a relationship i.e. Table B ( Customer Number and revenue) and Table c (distinct customer number and Customer name). So we will create a calculated column in Table c that will calculate the sum of revenue for the customers.

Table B

Table c

- In Power BI Desktop, go to the Modelling tab -> click on the new column from the ribbon.
- Then write the below formula in the formula box:

```
Column =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'Table B'[Revenue] ),
FILTER ( 'Table B', 'Table B'[Customer No.] = 'Table c'[Customer No.])
)
```

- Now you can see the calculated column added to the table based on another column.

This is an example of a Power Bi calculated column based on another column

## Power bi calculated column between two tables

Here we will see an example of a Power BI calculated column between two tables.

For example, we have below two tables (are in Many to one relationship) i.e. Table B and Table c. We will calculate the Total revenue when both the table are relatable.

Table B

Table C

- In Power BI Desktop, go to the Modelling tab, then click on the New column from the ribbon.
- Then write the below formula in the formula box:

```
Total revenue =
