## Calculate Branch Cost

Hello

I'm trying to sum up the values for different Dimension within the the GL Entry table.
As I'm new to Power BI i think i don't use the correct Filter function or there is a smoother way to get
to the result. All support is highly appreciated.

Total Branch Costs =
CALCULATE(SUM('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Amount]),
FILTER('AX\$G_L Entry (2)', 'AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "SA"))
FILTER('AX\$G_L Entry (2)', 'AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "BM"))
FILTER('AX\$G_L Entry (2)', 'AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "CS"))

Since I don't know what exactly the expected results you want. I list several cases.

Sample data.

1.Remove the concept of grouping and return the total for each row.

``Measure = CALCULATE(SUM('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Amount]),ALLSELECTED('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'))``

2.Summing by grouping [Global Dimension 1 Code], ignoring the context of the year.

``Measure 2 = CALCULATE(SUM('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Amount]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'),[Global Dimension 1 Code]=MAX('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code])))``

3.If you only want to ask for the sum of part [Global Dimension 1 Code], you can write it like this

``Measure 3 = CALCULATE(SUM('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Amount]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'),[Global Dimension 1 Code]="BM"||[Global Dimension 1 Code]="CS"))``

Summing which [Global Dimension 1 Code] is "BM" or "CS".

If the above cases is still not what you want, please provide some sample data and the desired result.

@JulioCastillo  I just forgot remove the other filters, use this code

CALCULATE(SUM('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Amount]),
FILTER('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'
'AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "SA")&&
'AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "BM")&&
'AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "CS"))

@JulioCastillo  try the below one!

Total Branch Costs =
CALCULATE(SUM('AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Amount]),
FILTER('AX\$G_L Entry (2)''AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "SA")&&
FILTER('AX\$G_L Entry (2)''AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "BM")&&
FILTER('AX\$G_L Entry (2)''AX\$G_L Entry (2)'[Global Dimension 1 Code] = "CS"))

Hi,

Thanks for your input unfortunately I get the following error message:

Filter been used in a True/False expression that is used as a table filter expression. This is not allowed.

Any hint on how to change the formula?
