How to create a new table based on the min and max values of a column

Hi,

 

I'd like to create a new table based on the min and max values within a column.  Here is an example of the table:

 

Car               Color       Motor     HP

911               Red         2.6          330

Mustang       Blue        5.0          430

Trans Am      White     6.6          475

Dart              Brown     4.2         200

 

I'd want to use the HP column's MIN and MAX value to create a new table with those as the tables limits.

 

Can you assist me in the DAX I'd need to accomplish this?

How about using GENERATESERIES?

 

HP_Table =
GENERATESERIES ( MIN ( Table1[HP] ), MAX ( Table1[HP] ), 5 )

This produces a table with one column [Value], {200, 205, ..., 470, 475}.

Hey AlexisOlson, if our Max and Minimum values change, shouldnt the table change as well? for Example if I have a slicer which effectively changes minimum and maximum value, the column returned should also change right?

No. A calculated table cannot be dynamically responsive to filters since calculated tables are only computed when the dataset is initially loaded or refreshed rather than in response to user interactions via filters or slicers.
