Calculated filed formula required for this excel equivalent formula


I’m trying to create a new calculated field which works on row to row basis, I want to replicate this Excel formula in quick sight, please help.

Excel Formula in D2: =IF(A2=A1,D1+B2-C1,B2)

Hi @Chittaranjan - welcome to the QuickSight Community! Thanks for asking your question.

Can you please try the lag function?

Hi The solution is not working as it is a row by row calculation without aggregation, Please help in solving, the mentioned case.

Hi @debapc,

Please find the attached screenshot, I’m trying to get the Load travelled in vehicle in each leg based on what had been loaded at departure location and unloaded at arrival location, For that the formula in F2 I used is =IF(A2=A1,F1+D2-E1,D2) , and the same is dragged down for F3,F4 and so on.

Hi @Chittaranjan - I worked on your dataset. Here is the result

Let me explain the steps …

  1. I added a column Seq_Num, which is a running sequence to the dataset
  2. Weight_Travelled is the value that you shared as “Physical Weight Travelled in the vehicle”. I copied the value to compare with the Calculated field Compute_Weight_Travelled.
  3. I added a Calculated field Dep_Weight_Loaded_Running = runningSum(sum({Dep_Weight_Loaded}),[{Seq_Num} ASC],[TripID])
  4. I added another Calculated field Arr_Weight_Unloaded_Running_Lag = runningSum(sum({Arr_Weight_Unloaded}),[{Seq_Num} ASC],[TripID]) - sum({Arr_Weight_Unloaded})
  5. Finally I added Calculated field Compute_Weight_Travelled = {Dep_Weight_Loaded_Running} - {Arr_Weight_Unloaded_Running_Lag}. Compute_Weight_Travelled is the field that you wanted calculate.

Please let me know if this works. Thanks!
