Measure not working with calculated column code due to "no single values"

Hi,

I would like to know how i have to adapt my code for a measure that is working for a calculated column.

There are two tables, one date table and one value table. The value table includes 4 columns of interest:

Project name, Workload (h) per day, Start Date, End date

The calculated column in the date table had to following code to sum up the workload on each day:

Workload (h) test = CALCULATE(
    SUM('Monitoring Demand Input'[Workload (h) per day]),
    FILTER(
        'Monitoring Demand Input',
        'Monitoring Demand Input'[Start Date] <= 'Date'[Date]
        &&
        'Monitoring Demand Input'[End Date]>= 'Date'[Date]
    )
)

 

However, this code doesn't work with a measure as the column Date doesn't contain a single/unique value:

I need the measure to allow the filtering on the column Project name, which is lost by the calculated column.

Thank you for your help and time!

Hi, @GunnZ 


Sample data:

You can try the following formula.

Measure:

Workload (h) test = 
IF (
    WEEKDAY ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] ), 2 ) < 6,
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Monitoring Demand Input'[Workload (h) per day] ),
        FILTER (
            ALL ( 'Monitoring Demand Input' ),
            'Monitoring Demand Input'[Start Date] <= SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] )
                && 'Monitoring Demand Input'[End Date] >= SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] )
        )
    ),
    0
)

Hi Charlotte,

 

Thank you for the help and showing me SELECTEDVALUE.

However, the filtering is still lost. The sample data has an additonal column called "type".  

A slicer doesn't work and if I add the "type" as a legend, it simply duplicates the data:

And a follow-up question: to sum up the workload per week, I would create a second measure to sum up the first correct?
