I have a report where I would like to put a switch on top as a slicer to switch between currency and units.
For this objective I started with this approach:
SWITCH A = VAR _Selection = SELECTEDVALUE('Currency/ Volume'[ID]) VAR _Volume = FORMAT(DIVIDE(SUM('Sales'[Value 1]),1000), "#,##K") VAR _Dollar = FORMAT(DIVIDE(SUM('Sales'[Value 1 $]),1000), "$ #,##K") RETURN IF(_Selection = 1, _Dollar, _Volume)
I have an unrelated table with 2 columns
Based on the selection of ID (1 or 2), I switch within the measure to Units or Dollars.
But now I get a Text Format as a result in the matrix. I would still like to have a number column in the matrix in the end with all values on the right alligned.
Any thoughts / optimizations on the approach above?
How would you do it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I would do this with a calculation group:
Format string expression:
IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Selection for V/C'[value]="Currency", "$ #,##K", selectedmeasureformatstring())
@ValtteriN :Thanks for sharing. Is it possible to use the same approach to switch between a Volume and a Dollar column with the indidivudal format? As of now it changing just the format for a single column, right?
@ValtteriN : Thanks a lot for providing this. It seems like the same column is display once in units and once in dollars, right?
But what I need is something the also multiplies the units into a dollar value. I have a column with units, I have a column with the price per unit and then if needed I have a calculated column with the total dollars (units x price)
@joshua1990 you can also manage calculation groups in Visual studio or after the upcoming release announced at MS Build calculation groups will be available in Power BI desktop. I think this was scheduled for June's release.
