Need help - DIVIDE with if statement in Denominator

Hi all,

Im looking for a solution to my problem. I want to do some divide with two statements in denominator like:

DIVIDE
 (COUNTROWS('Invoices),
   IF('Invoices'[Team] = "A",9,10)

Is it possiable to crate that kind of measure? I know that it isnt possiable to add reference to the column in denominator if statement....
 
Thanks in advance!

Hey @Anonymous ,

 

do you use it as a calculated column or as a measure?

As you wrote it the first post it looked like a calulcated column. Then my formula should work. If you use it as a measure, you have to add an aggregation. Then the following should work:

MyMeasure =
DIVIDE(
    COUNTROWS( 'Invoices' ),
    IF(
        MAX( 'Invoices'[Team] ) = "A",
        9,
        10
    )
)

 

If you need any help please let me know.

The formula dosent work. Can it be due to the fact that my refference column (Team) is a Custom made column with formula inside?

Hey @Anonymous ,

 

yes, that's absolutely possible.

The following approach should work:

MyMeasure =
DIVIDE(
    COUNTROWS( 'Invoices' ),
    IF(
        'Invoices'[Team] = "A",
        9,
        10
    )
)

 

You could also put it in a variable if you want to, but here that is not necessary:

MyMeasure =
VAR vIfValue =
    IF(
        'Invoices'[Team] = "A",
        9,
        10
    )
RETURN
    DIVIDE(
        COUNTROWS( 'Invoices' ),
        vIfValue
    )

 

If you need any help please let me know.

@selimovd do you maybe know, why it is not working? I cant do reference to a column in this part of your code:

   IF(
        'Invoices'[Team] = "A",
        9,
        10

 

I can make after IF(... reference to another formula or measure....
