Total value from parameter formula

Hi, I want to use one of my parameters result in a new calculation, but instead, I am always getting the formula and not the value itself. Does anyone know how to select only the result and not the formula? Thanks

hi  @Calouro 

Essentially, Parameter is just a formula that returns a value.

so you could nest it into measure expression not just add it in the end of formula

For example:

Measure = SUMX('Table',[Qty]+[Parameter Value])
Measure 2 = SUMX('Table',[Qty]) +[Parameter Value]




If not your case, please share a simple sample pbix file and your expected output.

Hi, lin,


thank you for your answer, it is valid and got the point. The parameter can be used or not depending on the purpose.

I believe I have not explained myself correctly the first time. When I said parameter I should have said measure.


So, I have a measure that has a DIVIDE formula inside and I want to use the result it gets in another formula and not the formula itself. Is this possible?


Example below:

Measure1 = DIVIDE(('table1'[companyx OPEX] - [measure2]) ; SUM('table1'[cost1])) <=> Measure1 = 50
