Creating Dynamic Formulas Based on User Selection

I am not very proficient writing DAX so if someone can help me, I would truly appreciate it. I have the data as shown below.




The table has a measure called Comp/RVU = sum(compensation) / sum(rvus)


The report has filter so users can filter by a specific person [Name] and quarter.


I want to ADD a report filter so the user can choose to either compare the individual's comp/RVU to the company average comp/RVU OR their site's comp/RVU. Then, I would have another measure called:


Variance = ( [Company or Site Comp/RVU] - [Individual Person's Comp/RVU] ) / [Company or Site Comp/RVU]


The field [Company or Site Comp/RVU] should be dynamic based on whether the person selects that they want to compare their data to the Site they work at or the entire company average.




Here is sample data:


I want to have a filter for the person so that you can select which person you want to look at on the report.

I also want to have a slicer where the user can select "Compare to Comp/RVU for the Site" OR "Compare to Comp/RVU for the Company".


Based on the slicer selection, there would be a formula calculating the variance.


For example, if someone selects Cathy and "Compare to Site", then the variance would be calculated between Cathy's measure $500 and the Site average for Boston which is $479


However, if the user selected Cathy and "Compare to Company", then the variance would be calculate between Cathy's measure $500 and the COMPANY average which is $458.

Hi @vtkendra 


I would like to help but I'm a little unclear about your requirements.


Can you show the following?


1)  Please provide sample data that covers your issue or question completely.  (I hate re-typing sample data.)


2) Please show the expected outcome based on the sample data you provided.


3) Please explain how you would expect to get from 1) to 2).


I hope this helps.

Thanks. I added a model and some additional explanation.
