Parameters in Power BI

Hello All,

 

I am new to Power BI.

I have a page where I need to show my measure names based on a parameter

 

If parameter ='Sales' then sales value

else parameter ='Profit' then profit

 

I am not sure how to do this.

Could any one please help

Hi @Anonymous 

It sounds like dynamic measure name, however, the name of column or measure cannot be changed dynamically in Power BI Desktop. You can use slicer, then select the measures according to the slicer. In this scenario, it will not change the name of the measure, but the calculation expression.

For example,

(1) the measure below returns [Profit] when you select "Profit" in Slicer, as is "Sales"

(2) Besides, you can use title function of that visual

Steps:

 

TitleMeasure = 
SWITCH(TRUE(),
MIN(Slicer[Column1])="Profit","Profit",
MIN(Slicer[Column1])="Sales","Sales")
