Compare all the values in a row with a number, execute Measure1 if true or Measure 2 if false

Hello,

I'm trying to write a logic where i need to calculate a measure based on specific weeks as shown below. However i end up either getting one of the following errors
"A single value for column in table cannot be determined power bi" or
"The expression refers to multiple columns Multiple columns cannot be converted to scalar value"

If(
Table[FY_Year_Weeknum]<202248,
Measure1,
Measure2
)

@Madhun , You have to use selectedvalue or max

 

 

If(
selectedvalues(Table[FY_Year_Weeknum])<202248,
Measure1,
Measure2
)

 

or

 

If(
max(Table[FY_Year_Weeknum])<202248,
Measure1,
Measure2
)

Hi @Madhun ,

It seems you are creating a measure,  please update the formula of your measure as below. Please find the details in the attachment.

Measure = IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[FY_Year_Weeknum] ) < 202248, [Measure1], [Measure2] )

Thanks for the response. Selectedvalue() function did the job for me 🙂
