Hi @Peter_Price,

 

Obviously, you are wrong with CONCATENATE function, it not support there merge values which you wired.

 

Reference links:

CONCATENATE Function

Joins two text strings into one text string.
CONCATENATE(<text1>, <text2>)

 

You can use below measure to achieve your requirement:

Measure =
VAR currCounty =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( Table[Country] )
VAR _symbol =
    SWITCH ( currCounty, "US", "$", "EUR", "€", "UK", "£", "$" )
RETURN
    _symbol & CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table[Sales] ), VALUES ( Table[Country] ) )
