Addcolumn and vlookup

I just created a new calculated column (FY24_AOP_Rate) into the factable. I would like to simply multiple and sum the result. but the code below seems is not responding the calculation. what i am doing it wrong ? many thanks in advance.

FY24_AOP_Rate =
LOOKUPVALUE(
            _SlicerTable[FY24 AOP],
            _SlicerTable[Currency], 'facttable'[Currency])

_SumXAmount =
SUMX (
     FILTER('facttable', 'facttable'[COL] = "A"),
    'facttable'[Amount]*('facttable'[FY24_AOP_Rate]))

Hi @Setosa ,

I've assumed some data:
Facttable:

_SlicerTable:

vzhouwenmsft_1-1709009672991.png

1.Using the dax expression you provided I created the calculated column ‘FY24_AOP_Rate’

2.Using the dax expression you provided I created the measure ‘_SumxAmount’, The function successfully computed the data I assumed.

Make sure the correct columns are applied in the lookupvalue function, there should be a many-to-one relationship between the fact sheet and the dimension sheet. If there are multiple rows of data that satisfy the filter criteria, the lookupvalue function will only return the first row of data that matches, which can make the result of the calculation wrong.

you cannot/should not create calculated columns from filters/slicers/measures. Instead, let the data model do its job.
