Hi Everyone,

Requesting you post the solutin or any advice for the below question.

TABLE1

 EMP ID SALARY SAVINGS EXPENSES TAX PAID 1 10000 1000 9000 500 2 5000 1500 3500 600 3 15000 5000 10000 700 4 8000 2400 5400 350 5 9000 3200 5700 550 6 7500 800 6700 700 7 6000 500 5500 800

Slicer 1

 Metric (Drop down Silcer) SALARY SAVINGS EXPENSES TAX PAID

Slicer 2

 Sort (Radio Button Slicer) ASC DSC

Above is the TABLE1 consists of Columns SALARY, SAVINGS, EXPENSES, TAXPAID and there need  two slicers like as above Slicer 1 and Slicer .

Now the requirement is if i select one Metric from Metric Slicer Ex. SAVINGS and selected ASC then the SAVINGS Column in the table should sort in Ascending order and if select DSC then it should sort in the Descending Order in the Same table without any Bookmarks.

Finally based on the Selection of Metric in Metric Slicer and Selection of Sort Slicer the Metric Value in the Table should Sort Accordingly.

Help me out with  closest solution.

Hi @Anonymous ,

You can try this measure

``````SORT =
SWITCH (
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Slicer 2'[Sort] ),
"ASC",
SWITCH (
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Slicer 1'[Metric] ),
"EXPENSES", SUMX ( 'TABLE1', [EXPENSESASC] ),
"SALARY", SUMX ( 'TABLE1', [SALARYASC] ),
"SAVINGS", SUMX ( 'TABLE1', [SAVINGSASC] ),
"TAX PAID", SUMX ( 'TABLE1', [TAX PAIDASC] )
),
"DSC",
SWITCH (
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Slicer 1'[Metric] ),
"EXPENSES", SUMX ( 'TABLE1', [EXPENSESDESC] ),
"SALARY", SUMX ( 'TABLE1', [SALARYDESC] ),
"SAVINGS", SUMX ( 'TABLE1', [SAVINGSDESC] ),
"TAX PAID", SUMX ( 'TABLE1', [TAX PAIDDESC] )
)
)``````
