How to create a measure which ignores the page filter but considers all other filters?


I have two example tableas as below



LocationMONTHYEARSeaterDateTotal SpendUniqueID





Both the tables are linked together with the UniqueID


I am trying to create a measure which gives me an "average cost per user" irrespective of team


Ideally its calculated as below

Total Spend/ No of users(not unique) 


Once I have that number I would like to multiply the "average cost per user" * number of users in a team to get the amount spent by the team from the Total spend.


That being said I've to create different sheets for different teams ideally I put the team under filter and select a team and calculate the below measures


1.   Need to get the total number of users irrespective of which team they are part of

Total no of users = CALCULATE(COUNTA(Last_3M_data[Users]), ALL(Last_3M_data[Team]))
Above gives me the number of user per month which is great, it also ignonres the selected team from page filter.
2. In this filter I want the average cost to be constant for each month but its not I think I'm not doing someting right. Ideally I dont want the average cost to change when I select different team because I want to multiply the average cost with the no of users in that team to find the amount spent by that team.
Avg_Cost_per-user = CALCULATE(DIVIDE(SUM(Combined[Total Spend]), [Total no of users]), ALL(Last_3M_data[Team]))



Total_Spend_per_team = CALCULATE(COUNT(Last_3M_data[Emp Id])*[Avg_Cost_per-emp_ per-trip])
This measure works but is not giving the correct numbers as and when the team change I believe its because the above measures are not set properly.
Please advise how this can be fixed 
Thank you

@Anonymous , Make sure you create common dimensions and join them with both tables


This can be done on one the common dimension that is base of this calculation

sumx(summarize(location,location[Location],"_1",CALCULATE(COUNT(Last_3M_data[Emp Id]),"_2",[Avg_Cost_per-emp_ per-trip])),[_1]*[_2])

Thank you for responding. But I dont understand your solution, Please pardon me am very new to Power BI and DAX.

If you are referring to linked columns then UniqueID is the one from those two tables which are linked with each other in Models.


Could you please explain how exactly the solution you've given would work.




Hi @Anonymous,


Could you share the sample pbix via cloud service like onedrive for business?So that can help us know your scenario more clear.
