DAX to calculate Hierarchical sales by weight

Hi,

 

My sales data are from SQL database and my weight data are from Excel spreadesheet.

This is my model diagram:

Now I want to calculate my sales by weight. So I am looking for some fomular like this:

Sales/Weight

This has to be filtered by hierarchy. 

 

I tried this DAX measure:

Weight = 
VAR catW = SELECTEDVALUE(weight[catgory])

VAR deptW = SELECTEDVALUE(weight[subdept])

VAR catS = SELECTEDVALUE(CAT_TAB[categoryDesc])

VAR deptS = SELECTEDVALUE(SDP_TAB[DepartmentDesc])

RETURN

IF(catW=catS && deptW=deptS,SUMX(weight,weight[weight],0))

 

The weight only return a total aggregation of weight, it doesn't break down by hierarchy. Thus I can't use this weight to divide my sales.

 

What is my issue? Can anyone help me on this?

 

Thanks.

Hi @JoeDoe 

Im not sure understand you correct, but maybe CALCULATE() will be enough?

like

IF(catW=catS && deptW=deptS,CALCULATE(SUMX(weight,weight[weight]),0))

@az38 Thanks for the adivse.

I found if I add the department and category from weight into the visulazation table, I can break down weight correctly.

I think my following question would be: is there any workaround for use my sales hierarchy to break down my weight data? 

Here is what I have now:

I am expecting use the hierarchy of weight to break down the sales OR use the hierarchy of sales to break down the weight.
