Dynamically create column based on measure name

I have two tables:

One table with all measure names in it:

TABLE NAME: MEASURES

Column OBJECT

Column Table

 

other table with the measur calculation in it

TABLE NAME: ACTUAL

Measure Actual - Gross

Measure Actual -Nett

 

Now i wanti to create a column as follows

 

KPI=
SWITCH (
    TRUE(),
  'MEASURES'[OBJECT] ="Actual - Gross",[Actual - Gross],
 'MEASURES'[OBJECT] ="Actual - Nett",[Actual - Nett],
0
)

 

This is working, but I have a lot of measures so this will take me a lot of time to create

The name of the measure is the same as the name in the object

 

Is there a possbility to make the dax code as follows:

 

KPI=
  'MEASURES'[OBJECT_NAME] ,MEASURES'TABLE'.MEASSURES[OBJECT]]
)
hopefully you understand what i try to accomplish

Hi @rjobaan ,

 

According to your statement, I know your requirement is that you want to auto-match the measure name in "Measure" table with the actual measures by code in format ([Actual measure], table name , [MeasureName]).

As far as I know, there is not any function in Power BI that support us to do this. I think SWITCH() function should be the best way. I think you can update your code as below.

KPI =
SWITCH (
    'MEASURES'[OBJECT],
    "Actual - Gross", [Actual - Gross],
    "Actual - Nett", [Actual - Nett],
    "Measure3", [Measure3],
    ...,
    0
)

Add all measures names and all measure into this code.
