How do I do calculate with my filters referencing a column of values depending on another column?


5-19-2018 11-38-18 AM.jpgI have a business scenario where I want to calculate the attach rate of my add on business to my main packaged sales. Below is a sample data set of my product hierarchies.


Depending on markets, some markets will attach Main Packaged Business to Add Ons differently. Scenario below


A: 1, 2, 3,5, 7

B: 6,7,8,9

C: 5,6,7


How do I filter the add ons in the CALCULATE() function such that it can scale based on an end user input of whether is it 1 ,2 ,3 and so forth?


Add ons and business hiearchies are all text based values.

In the example you have given you are missing a table in your data model for Market where you need to list the Main Package and related Ad-Ons. Without that how do you what package is tied to which ad-ons?


Also you your question is not very clear so can you explain a bit more on what you are trying to achieve?



Yes, assume that I have a related table as below.

I'm trying to achieve the below result but am struggling to find the write DAX formula and how to write it.5-19-2018 10-22-09 PM.jpg






















I'm looking for a way to calculate my fact Main Business Sales table such that it conditionally sums based on the add on it is calculating against. After which, to divide the add on sales by the conditionally sum main business sales to derive the attach rate.


My fact table consists of sales at a SKU/market level and the differentiator between Main Business sales or Add On sales is determined by one of the many product hierarchies called Business Type where Business Type = A, B, C, D, E, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5



Hope the below solution helps.

I am making some assumptions about how your product and ad-on prices are modelled.


1. Create a Table visual with Package ID from the combined table.

2. Then create the Measures as shown in below diagram.

The data model is:


If this solves your problem, please mark it as the solution.


@anandav, how is related main products linked to all the final calculation? I can't get it to work as intended as it is not summing up the main packaged base numbers correctly.


Anyway, i'm not looking for price. My sales data is sales quantity.
