Need some new ideas to solve a problem - Measure

Bonjour,

 

I need some new ideas to solve a problem as I feel I'm turning in circles. I will summarize the situation. I have a measure that calculates the date difference between two items for each invoice line in a table. I then have another measure that assigns a category to each of those invoice lines based on the first measure. I then have a third measure that calculates the balance for each invoice line based on the category assigned by the second measure. All measures are working perfectly when I use them in a matrix visual based on the invoice lines.

 

My problem arises when I try to add some additional levels to this visual. I try to get a drill-down view for Business unit, then Commercial unit, and finally the invoice level. The first two levels do not give the required calculation, but the last one is perfect when you reach it.

 

I tried some ideas to fix this, but none is working. The first two levels are not working properly with my measures. I would appreciate some of your ideas.

 

Thank you

Hi, @Turgpat 

According to your description, you created 3 measures to get the value you want. When you look at a certain dimension, the values returned by your 3 measures are all correct. But when you add other dimensions, it doesn't return the correct value in some dimensions.
For this problem, it is generally related to the filtering context of the measurement value. When you add a new dimension, the filtering context will become larger or smaller accordingly.
You can try to use isinscope() and if() or switch() functions to judge your current dimension, and then make these three measures return the values you want in all dimensions according to your different dimensions.
And when calculating, you can use functions such as filter() or all() to filter data and ignore the filtering context of certain fields.

For more information, you can refer to :
