## How to use a result of a measure in another measure

Hi there,

It's my first post here. I hope this will find you well.

I've created a measure which calculates the percentage of the costs.

Now I want to use these percentages to calculate the Turnover per employee according to their costs. How can I use the result of  a measure in another measure?

``````Cost in % =

VAR CurrentOrder = Values(expensepostings[order_id])
VAR CurrentSuborder = Values(expensepostings[suborder_id])
VAR TotalCosts =
SWITCH(
TRUE(),
ISINSCOPE(employees[display_name]), CALCULATE(SUM(expensepostings[cost_amount]), ALLSELECTED(expensepostings), expensepostings[order_id] IN CurrentOrder, expensepostings[suborder_id] in CurrentSuborder),
ISINSCOPE(expensepostings[suborder_id]), CALCULATE(SUM(expensepostings[cost_amount]), ALLSELECTED(expensepostings), expensepostings[order_id] IN CurrentOrder),
ISINSCOPE(expensepostings[order_id]), CALCULATE(SUM(expensepostings[cost_amount]),ALLSELECTED(expensepostings))
)
RETURN
IF(
ISINSCOPE(expensepostings[order_id]),
DIVIDE(expensepostings[Gesamtkosten], TotalCosts),
1
)``````

Depending on which level I am this measure will calculate the percentage of costs according to the order_id, the suborder_id or the employee name. The result on employee level is shown here:

Now I have the percentages from each employee per suborder. I want to use these percentages to calculate the turnover for each employee per suborder.  In the order table I have the information that suborder 19790 has a turnover of 875. But I don't know how to use the calculated percentages.

I would like to excpect the turnover for each employee per suborder like this:

Does somebody has an idea how to do this?

You cannot measure a measure.  Implement your entire business logic in a single measure.
