Dynamic Total Column based on slicer

Hi Guys,

 

I have the challenge that I need to show the dynamic total in a separeted column according to a slicer.

 

For example if I filter 2 countries I need to show the total for these two countries. The reson is because I need this total to be a dynamic denominator for future calculations.

 

Please see the sample below:

 

Filter: Selected Australia and Singapore = total of 10 

 

CountryValueTotal Dynamic Colum
Australia510
New Zealand310
Singapore510
Total1310

 

Slicer: Selected New Zealand and Singapore = total of 8

 

CountryValueTotal Dynamic Colum
Australia58
New Zealand38
Singapore58
Total138

 

Is there anyway to achieve this with DAX?

 

Thanks!!

Hi @fabdata1207 ,

 

A calculated column is static, it won't change for slicer selection.

You may try a measure instead.

 

First you need to create a separate country table for the slicer to select. This country table cannot have a relationship with the main table.

A calculated table:

Country=DISTINCT('Table'[Country])

Then, create a measure.

Total Dynamic Measure = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[Country] in ALLSELECTED(Country[Country])))

Yes. Create a disconnected table with the values of interest with the DISTINCT or VALUES function, and use that new table/column in your slicer. You can then use an expression like this to get your dynamic total.

 

Selected Total =
VAR sel =
DISTINCT( SlicerTable[Country] )
RETURN
CALCULATE(
SUM( table[Value] ),
ALL( Table[Country] ),
Table[Country] IN sel
)
