Return a Table With a SWITCH

hi,

I have the following table: "COSTORCOUNT"

adicarmeliEX__3-1685866808271.png

and a parameter table:  "parameterTable"

adicarmeliEX__4-1685867454865.png

 

I'm tring to return a table according to selectedvalue from the "parameterTable"

I put the paramter column in a slicer.

when selecting 0 -the excepted resuelt is the following table:

adicarmeliEX__1-1685866726111.png

 

and when selecting 1 -

adicarmeliEX__2-1685866759751.png

 

 

Below is the code:

 

 

dynamicSlicer = 
VAR _TableAdi = SUMMARIZECOLUMNS(COSTORCOUNT[Flag])
VAR _TableTamir = SUMMARIZECOLUMNS(COSTORCOUNT[Flag],FILTER(COSTORCOUNT,COSTORCOUNT[Flag]=0))

VAR _Switch = IF( SELECTEDVALUE(parameterTable[parameter]) = 1,
                         _TableAdi, _TableTamir)

return _Switch

 

 

 

I'm getting the following error: 

adicarmeliEX__0-1685866449826.png

The expression specified in the query is not a valid table expression.

 

 

any advice will be appreciated.

 

Thank you, Adi

@adicarmeliEX_ I've never had any luck with DAX being able to return one table or another table. It doesn't like it. Try this instead:

dynamicSlicer = 
    VAR _Selected = SELECTEDVALUE(parameterTable[parameter])
    VAR _Table = SUMMARIZE(FILTER(COSTORCOUNT, [Flag] = _Selected),[Flag])
RETURN
    _Table
