IF that will ignore Grand Sum

Hello all,

 

Bit of a quick one, I am having a list of values, sick leave days taken through the year.

I have a measure that will sum them up per employee: Sick Leave Days:=SUM([values]) and sliced by employee.

I want to create the following IF: Sick Leave Adjusted:=IF([Sick Leave Days]>5,5,[Sick Leave Days]), in essence, eliminate any sick leave days over 5.

That works well but problem is, once in Grand Total of the pivot, [Sick Leave Adjusted] will return value 5 and not the adjusted sum.

I did try an iteration of it, (SUMX([Leave],IF([Sick Leave Days]>5,5,[Sick Leave Days]))) but that won't work since that only checks individual records rather than the SUM.

Another option I'm thinking is to use the SUMX above but then i'll have to head back to power query and group my values and sum them up by employee.

Any idea on DAX?

 

Cheers

Hi @kalspiros 

 

Replace the column you used in Row Labes (Column A) with [a column that you used in row].

 

IF that column is Name then use [Name]

Fantastic! many thanks @VahidDM that works wonders! Initially it was returning all 5's but the problem was with the [Sum Leave Days] measure, it all works fine now 🙂

Hi @kalspiros 

 

try this:

 

Sick Leave Adjusted =
IF(
    HASONEVALUE( [a column that you used in row] ),
    IF( [Sick Leave Days] > 5, 5, [Sick Leave Days] ),
    SUMX(
        SUMMARIZE(
            table,
            [a column that you used in row],
            "Leave", IF( [Sick Leave Days] > 5, 5, [Sick Leave Days] )
        ),
        [Leave]
    )
)

Thank you @VahidDM , apologies for the complete ignorance but i'm somehow lost due to HASONEVALUE which i can't get my head around it. what do you mean by 

[a column that you used in row]

?

I think i'm doing something wrong because the values that are coming up are rather funny
