## Dynamic conditional usage of dimension tables

Hi all,

I'm trying find the best solution for filtering accounting data based on different custom groupings.

I currenly have this kind of parameter table for groupings.

And these dimension tables to tell how to read accounting data into those groups.

And below is how the grouping of the data should happen.

What would be the best way to find the total amount for each individual group? As there should be no usage of filtering table if selected group has zero rows for the dimension table in question. For example, as Group1 uses only account numbers, it should ignore the dimension tables for cost centers and Grouping DimX.

Thanks in advance, I'm a bit stuck as my ideas don't seem to work as I want.

 Grouping Groupd ID Group 1 Group1 Filtered only by Accounts 2 Group2 Filtered by Accounts And Cost Centers 3 Group3 Filtered by Accounts And Cost Centers 4 Group4 Filtered by Accounts and Dimensions

 Grouping Account Account Grouping 5000 1 5001 1 5002 1 5003 1 5004 1 5005 2 5006 2 5007 2 5005 3 5006 3 5007 3 5010 4 5011 4 5012 4

 Grouping Cost Centers CostCenter Grouping 1 2 2 3

 Grouping DimX Dimension Grouping 1 4

 Accounting Data Account CostCenter DimX Amount 5000 1 1 50,00 € Group1 5001 2 2 100,00 € Group1 5002 3 2 200,00 € Group1 5003 4 2 300,00 € Group1 5004 5 1 50,00 € Group1 5005 1 2 100,00 € Group2 5006 1 3 200,00 € Group2 5007 1 4 300,00 € Group2 5005 2 5 300,00 € Group3 5006 2 6 50,00 € Group3 5007 2 3 100,00 € Group3 5010 12 1 200,00 € Group4 5011 13 1 300,00 € Group4 5012 14 1 50,00 € Group4

Hi @dhannaa ,

Please refer to my steps to see if it helps you.

Create relationships between the three tables.

Then create a measure.

``````balance =
IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Table_3[Dimension])=1,"Group4",IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Table_1[Grouping])=2&&SELECTEDVALUE(Table_2[CostCenter])=1,"Group2",IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Table_1[Grouping])=3&&SELECTEDVALUE(Table_2[CostCenter])=2,"Group3","Group1")))``````

The best way to accomplish this would be to implement Calculation Groups
