## IF Function dependent on Slicer with result coming from different columns

Hi, I have two Data sets as below.

Table 1:

 Product YTD1 YTD2 YTD3 Total A 10 15 12 37 B 5 2 1 8 C 6 1 3 10 Total 55

Table 2:

 Month YTD Jan YTD1 Feb YTD2 Mar YTD3

I want to create a NewColumn (or maybe a new measure) in Table 1 which is dependent on a Slicer (value: Jan, Feb, Mar) in the Report.

For example, if filtered value is "Jan" in the slicer, the NewColumn will get YTD1 column, if "Feb", then it will get YTD2 column.

What is the way to do this?

Thank you!

Hi  ,

1. Create a table via

Table = union(VALUES(Table2[YTD]),{"NewColumn"})

2. Put the new column [YTD] in 'Table' into Columns of matrix table.

3. Create a mesure use the following code:

``````Measure =
VAR _sum =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[Value] ),
'Table1'[YTD] = SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[YTD] )
)
VAR _newcolumn =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[Value] ),
'Table1'[YTD] = SELECTEDVALUE ( Table2[YTD] )
)
RETURN
IF (
HASONEVALUE ( 'Table'[YTD] ),
IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[YTD] ) = "newcolumn", _newcolumn, _sum ),
SUM ( Table1[Value] ) + _newcolumn
)
``````

A slicer choice cannot create a column. It can impact a measure. Read about SELECTEDVALUE() and SWITCH()
