  • DAX doesn't do relative references between the rows in the same way since there is no inherent ordering of the table. You'll have to use the index column in order to find the appropriate row.

Reported Size = IF( LOOKUPVALUE( Table1[Cage No], Table1[Index Order], Table1[Index Order] - 1 ) = Table1[Cage No], 0, Table1[Size] )
