Writing a measure to subtract two columns same table with filters

Hi 

 

I have 2 columns that i would like to subtract from one another after applied filters.

 

Eg.

 

Column B (with version type x and month number x) - Column A (with version type x and month number x)

 

 

What I currently have and is giving me wrong answer:

 

ForecastCMVariance = CALCULATE(SUM(FilteredCommercial[Forecast]) - CALCULATE(SUM(FilteredCommercial[Capital Rental])))

 

How do I go about writing this dax?

 

DAX filter

Hi @EMSSS22 

Are version type and month number from the same table or different tables? What are the relationship between the tables? When you refer to "x" is it the same value used to filter both columns?

Hi 

 

Yes its the same table.

 

and

 

Yes the same filter needs to be applied to both columns.

 

Thanks 🙂

@EMSSS22 

Apologies for the late reply. Please try

ForecastCMVariance =
SUMX (
FILTER ( Commercial, Commercial[Version] = "x" && Commercial[month number] = y ),
Commercial[Forecast] - Commercial[Capital Rental]
)

Try something like

ForecastCMVariance =
CALCULATE (
    SUMX (
        FilteredCommercial,
        FilteredCommercial[Forecast] - FilteredCommercial[Capital Rental]
    ),
    FilteredCommercial[Version] = "x",
    FilteredCommercial[month number] = y
)
