## Displaying a measure total that ignores date slicer

I'm trying to use a measure to calc a total budget for the year to use in a gauge.   my formula is:

BudgetTotal = CALCULATE(sum('2017FinancialData'[Total]),'2017FinancialData'[type] = "Budget",All('2017FinancialData'[Total]))

I have a date slicer on the report that allows a user to select a date range...however, it is converting the measure to a YTD value instead of a Total for the Year.   How do I have this measure ignore the date slicer that I have on the report?

Thanks!

It's just general "best practices" to have a separate calendar table, and power bi helps you via CALENDARAUTO( ) function if you don't have one easily.  The idea is that you want a calendar w/ no "gaps" (missing days) ... and also fewer rows than would typically be in your large fact table.

Ignoring that if you want...  I would expect something more like:

BudgetTotal = CALCULATE(sum('2017FinancialData'[Total]),'2017FinancialData'[type] = "Budget",All('2017FinancialData'[DateField]))

But you need to keep it in the same year, so you would need a year column in your table and add it to your All as AllExcept or add another param to calculate that is VALUES(MyTable[Year]).

Typically, you would have a separate data/calendar table, and that is where the slicer would come from... AND... where the dax measure should filter.

Your final ALL( ) looks a bit weird to me, I would expect something clearing some date fields instead.

Yeah...the All() was just an attempt to get the total.

The data table has both budget and actual rows that includes a column for the date that each row is for.   I'm don't see how I could separate the date from that table?
