FX Translation for multiple currencies to a single currency

Hello, 

 

I am wanting to convert each transaction value to NZD, at the selected reporting date. 

 

I am currently getting this error, can anyone help with my dax please?

Hi @watje255_ju ,

 

You may try this Measure.

FX Translation =
VAR FXTranslationDate =
    MAX ( DimDate[DateKey] )
VAR SelectedCurrencyKey =
    MAX ( FactAccountsReceivable[Company Key] )
VAR LookedExchangeRate =
    CALCULATE (
        MAX ( FactExchangeRate[Exchange Rate] ),
        FILTER (
            FactExchangeRate,
            FactExchangeRate[Valid From] = FXTranslationDate
                && FactExchangeRate[To Currency Key] = SelectedCurrencyKey
        )
    )
RETURN
    // SUMX( FactAccountsReceivable,
    //  FactAccountsReceivable[Amount Currency] /
    //          LOOKUPVALUE( FactExchangeRate[Exchange Rate],
    //              FactExchangeRate[Valid From], FXTranslationDate,
    //              FactExchangeRate[To Currency Key], FactAccountsReceivable[Currency Key]) )
    SUMX (
        FactAccountsReceivable,
        FactAccountsReceivable[Amount Currency] / LookedExchangeRate
    )

 

The result looks like this.

Hi @v-cazheng-msft  thank you very much!! I just changed the 

VAR SelectedCurrencyKey =
    MAX ( FactAccountsReceivable[Company Key] )

company key to currency key and then the formula worked perfectly, thank you so much!

@watje255_ju , you lookup is giving more then one value.

 

Put it inside minx/maxx /Averagex

 

Minx(Table, <Your lookup code>)

Hi @amitchandak , thanks for your reply, could you clarify where abouts in the Dax formula? 

FX Translation =
VAR FXTranslationDate =MAX(DimDate[DateKey])

Return SUMX( FactAccountsReceivable,
    FactAccountsReceivable[Amount Currency] /
            LOOKUPVALUE( FactExchangeRate[Exchange Rate],
                FactExchangeRate[Valid From], FXTranslationDate,
                FactExchangeRate[From Currency Key], FactAccountsReceivable[Currency Key]) )
 
Thanks!!
