Alternative of SELECTEDVALUE DAX function

Guys,

 

We have a Employee Name Slicer in Power BI and were showing some counts based on slicer selection using SELECTEDVALUE function. We are migrating our entire steup to Prod environment on SSAS 2016 where SELECTEDVALUE is not compatible.

 

Also we tried with HASONEVALUE(), but I guess this can be used with only numeric or date type values. As discussed above we are having string type values as Employee Names.

 

Please suggest us an alternative that can be used in this place with String type values.

HI,

 

SELECTEDVALUE is internally translated into following

 

IF ( HASONEVALUE ( Table[column] ), VALUES ( Table[column] ) )

 So just use the IF expansion. And it does work with string types also.

Worked Beautifully! Thank You.

Your formula:

IF ( HASONEVALUE ( Table[column] ), VALUES ( Table[column] ) )

is a personal-game-changer for me.  Thanks!
