Dynamic X-axis dimension without Bookmark and Field Parameters

Hi All, I am currently in the need to create a dynamic X-axis (dimension) without making use of field parameters (Live connection) and bookmarks (too many bookmarks already present). I have created a static table with 4 values and I am trying to create a switch statement as below... but for some reason it is not working:


Dynamic Dim = VAR sel =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Select Dimension Table'[Dimension] )
    SWITCH (
        "Category", Orders[Category],
        "Sub-Category", Orders[Sub-Category],
        "Region", Orders[Region],
        "Segment", Orders[Segment]
Can some1 please help me to get this done keeping in mind the restrictions above.

I need to switch between clearly mentioned above..x- axis should depict category or sub category or region etc based on my slicer selection...and I am guessing that in no way can be defined as a measure...


You can use Field Parameters to swap dimension columns dynamically.

There's no such thing as a dynamic column  - well there is, but it's called a measure.


Please explain in more detail what you are trying to achieve.
