Unable to make a parameter take another parameter as a value

I want to create a parameter A from 0-100 that i would write as generateseries(0, 100, [B value]) where B value is from another parameter B that I could use to change the interval parameter A increases by.


However I can't to find a way to make it work. Parameter A will accept a variable set to a specific number, and a variable based on a condition, but it will not accept anything that comes from another parameter, even if i set var x = [B value] and then plug in x into param B. I can see thru the viz that x clearly equals a whole number but the parameter acts like it isnt there.


Is action not allowed? Am i missing something or am i going about my method wrong?

Hi @matsto ,


A fact table won't be affected by measure value. it will work only when the table is a variable in a formula.

@matsto , Any calculated table will not take measures like this. even if takes it would initial values and that will not change based on the slicer


You can do that inside a measure in a var table
