How to make a calculated table dependent on the source's slicer

Hi!

As I've tried to illustrate in the picture below I have created a calculated table (Variances) out of some fields in the main table (Table1). 

 

The formula behind the calculated table is as follows:

Variances = 

    UNION(
       Row("Type";"BUD";
            "Amount";sum(Table1[BUDamount]);
            "Weight";sum(Table1[BUD weight])
        );
        ROW("Type";"Volume";
            "Amount";sum(Table1[_VarAna.Volume]);
            "Weight";0
        );
        ROW("Type";"Mix";
            "Amount";SUM(Table1[_VarAna.Mix]);
            "Weight";0
        );
        Row("Type";"Price";
            "Amount";SUM(Table1[_VarAna.Price]);
            "Weight";0
        );
        Row("Type";"ACT";
            "Amount";sum(Table1[ACT amount]);
            "Weight";sum(Table1[ACT weight])
        )
    )

 

This works perfectly as long as I don't apply filters (slicer) to my report. The problem is that the calculated table disregards my slicer (Table[Year]). I assume I have to apply CALCULATETABLE somehow, and I've tried that (also CALCULATE) in different ways without luck.

 

Any suggestions as to how I can achieve a calculated table that responds to the slicer in Table1?

hi @Anonymous 

if i understand you correct it should be enough to inclue your sum-statements into CALCULATE like

Variances = 

    UNION(
       Row("Type";"BUD";
            "Amount";CALCULATE(sum(Table1[BUDamount]));
            "Weight";CALCULATE(sum(Table1[BUD weight]))
        );
        ROW("Type";"Volume";
            "Amount";CALCULATE(sum(Table1[_VarAna.Volume]));
            "Weight";0
        );
        ROW("Type";"Mix";
            "Amount";CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[_VarAna.Mix]));
            "Weight";0
        );
        Row("Type";"Price";
            "Amount";CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[_VarAna.Price]));
            "Weight";0
        );
        Row("Type";"ACT";
            "Amount";CALCULATE(sum(Table1[ACT amount]));
            "Weight";CALCULATE(sum(Table1[ACT weight]))
        )
    )

after that your slicer from the sae table should affect your visual

Thanks for your response @az38 !

 

I tried your modification, and unfortunately it works in an opposit direction of what I need. CALCULATE without any filter clears even the row context. I need row context to be preserved, and also have the table recalculated based on the slicer selection. I do believe CALCULATE or CALCULATETABLE is a part of the solution, but with some sort of filter included. Maybe ALLSELECTED / ALLEXCEPT, but I'm not able to figure out which and exactly how to design/write it.

 

I hope this clearifies, and if not please don't hesitate to ask!
