## Constant Line in column chart does not work with measure using ISINSCOPE

I thought this would be easy but it isn´t 😉

I have a stacked column chart where you can drill up and down from date / week / month / year.
What I need is a constant line for showing a goal depending on if week or month... or whatever is chosen.

I have created a measure:

``````GOAL =
SWITCH(
TRUE(),
ISINSCOPE(Kalender[Date]),10000,
ISINSCOPE(Kalender[Week]), 50000,
ISINSCOPE(Kalender[Month]), 200000,
ISINSCOPE(Kalender[YEAR]),2400000
)``````

Then I created a Constant line and added the measure using the fx-icon
(Format style "Field value", What field should we base this on? "Goal")

The constant line appears but the value is always 0, no matter what I drill through.

Just to test my measure I have changed the visual to Line and stack column chart and used the measure for Y-Axis - there it works! But this is not what I want.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance!

Hi @cosmicyes ,

I don't mean for you to create a fixed line value. I just want to explain why the line always stays on 0, because constant line can't tell which level the X-axis is at. So, Line and stack column chart maybe the only way you can do it.

Hi @cosmicyes ,

Because for constant line, it can't tell which level the X-axis is at. If you add a ELSE value in the SWITCH formula, it can return that value like below.

Dear @v-yanjiang-msft ,
But this way I always have the same constant line, no matter if week, month or whatever is selected. This is unfortunately not what I need.
