    PowerPivot x-axis date values

    Good day,

    So I’m struggling with a date issue for some graphs that a client wants me to model the data around. The graphs were initially constructed in excel using a variety of different pivot tables and vlookups (See excel file ‘Booking Engine – Funnel – Anonymised’ attached). I need to recreate the graphs on the ‘Dashboard-IV’ in PowerView based on the data from the ‘UPVData’ sheet and host them on PowerBI for clients to access. I have started with the data modelling and reports (see excel file ‘Booking Funnel Data 2′) no 2,4, and 6 on the right of the ‘Dashboard-IV’ page. These I have no problem with as the x-axis contain normal dates and I can just use the ‘Date’ values from the ‘UPVData’ or Date table.

    My struggle is how I can create the x-axis date values for reports no 1,3,5,7,8,9,10? The x-axis uses 5 values:

    – Current Month (e.g. May-2015)
    – Previous Month (e.g. April 2015)
    – Last 3 Month Average (e.g. last three month average)
    – Last 6 Month Average (e.g. last six month average)
    – Same month last year (e.g. May-2014)

    What I don’t know is whether there is a way to model the data so that I can use the date values across all calculations, or whether I need to create these x-axis date values for each calculated value, i.e. Desktop, Tablet, Mobile, Start %, Passenger details %, etc.

    Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Kind Regards,


    Ps: I see my files are too big to download - any way around this.
