DAX - Selected value

Hi
I wrote a measure where if is January is selected measure shows 1, february 2, so on till december.
Measure = switch(selectedvalue
                              (dim_table[month_name]),
                               "January",1,
                                "February",2)
Is it possible , if both January and February are selected, measure should show 1,2. If January,February and March are selected measure should show 1,2,3.

Thankyou

Hi @Prabha45 

if the month name column is coming from a date table the you can try. 

CONCATENATEX ( VALUES ( 'Date'[Date].[Month] ), [Month], "," )

However, the following shall work in all scenarios 

CONCATENATEX (

VALUES ( 'Table'[Month] ),

SWITCH (

[Month],

"January", 1,

"February", 2,

etc. 

),

","

)

 

Thanks that worked. I need the measure to be in integer format, but it is in Text format. I used convert to change it to integer then the output changed to 123.

@Prabha45 

Cannot have an integer with delimiter. What exactly are you trying to achieve?

I need to trigger a function app with the filters selected in Power BI as input for the function app. It has month parameter which accepts inputs as 1 or 1,2 or 1,2,3. If I use the above measure( text format) it takes the values as "1,2,3". So, I converted it to integer then it took input as 123. 

@Prabha45 

So with CONVERT you got your desired outcome? Or you still need further support? If so please clarify further perhaps with some examples and/or screenshots. 

No. If I use convert, the output of the measure changes to 123. With 123 as input, I can't trigger the function app.
If I don't use convert, the measure output is 1,2,3. when I pass this as input it takes as "1,2,3".

@Prabha45 

I hope you realize that there is no possibility that I have any idea what function app is. I don't see what you see. I have no access to your report so please treat me as complete blind when explaining to me ☺️

hi @Prabha45 

1) try to add a column like:

month_number = 
SWITCH(
    [month_name],
    "January", 1,
    "February", 2,
    "March", 3,
    "April", 4,
    "May", 5,
    "June", 6,
    "July", 7,
    "August", 8,
    "September", 9,
    "October", 10,
    "November", 11,
    12
)

 

2) then plot a measure like this:

Measure = 
CONCATENATEX(
    TableName,
    TableName[month_number],
    ","
)

 

it worked like:

Thanks that worked. But, the measure is in Text format. I used convert to change it to integer then the output changed to 123.

hi @Prabha45 

why change to integer?

I need to trigger a function app with the filters selected in Power BI as input for the function app. It has month parameter which accepts inputs as 1 or 1,2 or 1,2,3. If I use the above measure( text format) it takes the values as "1,2,3". So, I converted it to integer then it took input as 123.
