Period Comparison Growth Category

Dear All,

I really need a help regarding Growth Category based on my growth % (Period Comparison). I have created Period1 and Period 2 measures and I have created a measure for Growth %.  But I want to create Category based on my Growth%. Since Growth% is a measure (Row Context) I coundnt Achieve what am expecting.

I have created two Tables Date 1, 

I have created the following measures:

Sales = SUM('demo'[total_sales])
Period 1 = CALCULATE([Sales],KEEPFILTERS(TREATAS(VALUES('Date 1'[invoice_date]),'demo'[invoice_date])))
Period 2 = CALCULATE([Sales],KEEPFILTERS(TREATAS(VALUES('Date 2'[invoice_date]),'demo'[invoice_date])))
Growth % = IF([Period 1]<>0,([Period 2]-[Period 1])/[Period 1],
                        IF(AND([Period 1]=0,[Period 2]=0), 0,
                            IF(AND([Period 1]=0,[Period 2]<>0),[Period 2],
                               IF([Period 1]=[Period 2],0
This is what I want to achieve to see how many stores falls into the respective category. The below mentioned Table is the one am expecting.
Growth Category = IF([Growth %] < -0.50, "-50+",
IF(AND([Growth %] < -0.25,[Growth %] >= -0.50), "-50 to -26",
IF(AND([Growth %] < 0,[Growth %] >= -0.25), "-25 to -1",
IF(AND([Growth %] > 0,[Growth %] <= 0.25), "0 to 25",
IF(AND([Growth %] > 0.25,[Growth %] <= 0.50), "26 to 50",
IF([Growth %] > 0.50, "51+",
IF([Growth %] = 0.00, "Zero Growth", "Zero Sales"
Growth Category-50+-50 to -26-25 to -10 to 2526 to 5050+



Thank you.

Hi, @Beniya_Samson ;

You could change the [Growth Category ] to column or you need add a new table like this.


If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.
