## DAX Measure Base on Column value

Hi All

I will appreciate your help as I'm trying to figure out my roadblock  in power bi, here is the scenario

I'm trying to create a measure base on the value on the field, the table have already  3 measures but I want to create a 4th but the formula is different based on the column value.

I'm trying to invoke the if but it didn't detect the field name since its a calculated measure.

 Product Measure 1 Measure 2 Measure 3 Measure 4 A 100 150 300 if Product = A then Measure 1 + Measure 3                  else measure 1 + Measure 2 + Measure 3 B 100 150 300 if Product = A then Measure 1 + Measure 3                  else measure 1 + Measure 2 + Measure 4 C 100 150 300 if Product = A then Measure 1 + Measure 3                  else measure 1 + Measure 2 + Measure 5

Thank you

you can't pick the column name directly in a measure so this is the approach! Share your Kudos

Hi DemiHaung, Try this

Measure 4 =
VAR SelectedProduct = SELECTEDVALUE(Table[Product])
RETURN
IF(
SelectedProduct = "A", [Measure1]+[Measure2]+[Measure3],
BLANK()
)

If found helpful mark as a solution or give Kudos for efforts. Thanks!
