Calculate data in a column from a selection of data

I have a data table showing prices of different items in the local currency of each country, the date, the country, and the exchange rate of the local currency to US dollars, amount sold.

What I need is to have a report in which selecting, local currency or US dollars; The report presents me with the data in dollars or in the local currency.

The most obvious and easy thing is to have a column with the price in dollars (additional to the one in local currency), but that would lead me to have reports in both dollars and local currency; And that's tedious.

I hope you can help me.

Hi @Syndicate_Admin ,

 

You can try this method:

Sample data:

Then you need to new a table to be a slicer:

Then in the DataTable, new a measure:

USDORLOCAL =

var _USD = SUMX(SUMMARIZE('DataTable', 'DataTable'[Country],'DataTable'[Exchange Rate],'DataTable'[Price],'DataTable'[Items], "USD", 'DataTable'[Exchange Rate] * 'DataTable'[Price]),[USD])

var _Local = SUMX(SUMMARIZE('DataTable','DataTable'[Country],'DataTable'[Items],'DataTable'[Price]), 'DataTable'[Price])

return

IF(SELECTEDVALUE(SlicerTable[Slicer]) = "USD", _USD, _Local)

The result is:

vyinliwmsft_2-1668764625267.png

 

vyinliwmsft_3-1668764625276.png

 

Is this what you expect?

Hope this helps you.
