## LINEST forEach

I am trying to crerate a measure using LINEST that would give me the slope but I have not been successful.

PFA what I have tried.

Following is what I desire

``````| Country | x | y | slope |
|---------|---|---|-------|
| C1      | 1 | 3 | 1.75  |
| C1      | 2 | 5 | 1.75  |
| C1      | 3 | 7 | 1.75  |
| C2      | 2 | 3 | 2.25  |
| C2      | 3 | 6 | 2.25  |
| C2      | 4 | 8 | 2.25  |``````

To the best of my knowledge, I am passing on the correct filtered table to LINEST

Hi @smpa01 ,

``````Measure =
var _a = FILTER(ALL('fact'),'fact'[Country]=MAX('fact'[Country]))
return MAXX(CALCULATETABLE(LINEST('fact'[y],'fact'[x]),_a),[Slope1])``````

Final output:

@smpa01 You could create a measure that returns a text table using TOCSV and parse that.

For example:

``````LINEST Output =
VAR _filteredTable_ = FILTER ( ALL ( 'fact' ), 'fact'[Country] = MAX ( 'fact'[Country] ) )
VAR _linEst_ = LINESTX ( _filteredTable_, 'fact'[y], 'fact'[x] )
VAR _toText = TOCSV ( _linEst_, , "|", FALSE() )
RETURN
_toText``````

Then you can define the following:

``Slope1 = PATHITEM ( [LINEST Output], 1 )``
``ResidualSumOfSquares = PATHITEM ( [LINEST Output], 10 )``

@v-jianboli-msft  just being curious here. So if I need Total Sum of Square, Residual Sum of Square and R Square, I need to create 3 seperate measures (TSS, RSS and RSquare) and then create subsequent measures for each  ( incorect TSS, RSS, RSquare) immediately created measures like you did above to derive at the correct TSS, RSS, RSquare value for the filter context?

You have to create different measures, one for each statistic you need. There is currently no way to create a DAX function that returns a table value to be shared by multiple measures.

Thanks @AlexisOlson , applied here

If a linear regreesion is required but only for viz purpose there are tons (I literally mean tons) of javascript library that can do the job at the front-end while developing cust viz and there won't be any DAX dependency.

However, if the linear regression is required as part of the SSAS dataset then DAX is the only option and this is a really nice trick here.
