Referencing a field from a query in Measures Folder

To answer your question, you may need to provide the relationship of different tables in your data.

By guessing, your DAX is calculating all the entries of [Forecasted Amount] in the 'Fact Exposure' table, becasue there is no relationship between 'Fact Exposure' and the other table.

Please mark my post as the solution if this answers your question!
Appreciate your Kudos !!

So, there is only one table. But i am referencing it from another Folder i created, and i am creating a new Measure within that folder. Hope this makes sense?

Hi @Selwynster 


If you want to reference a measure in another measure, you can use it directly. If Forecasted Amount is a measure, Forecast Premium could be 

Forecast Premium =
VAR vForecastPremiumGuaranteeAmount = [Forecasted Amount]
    IF (
        NOT ISBLANK ( vForecastPremiumGuaranteeAmount ),

Thank you. 'Forecasted Amount' is from another table so i cannot reference it directly.
Error: "Cannot find Name '[Forecasted Amount]')
