Return filtered column if any in a measure as a variable

Hello everyone

 

I am trying to create a one-size-fits-all measure for multiple tables, but I got stuck somewhere.

 

Below is a dummy case:

 

Raw Data

 

YearStoreProductLocationRevenue
1/1/2019AIce CreamNew York $           500
1/1/2019ABeerNew York $           500
1/1/2019BIce CreamLittle Rock $           100
1/1/2019BBeerLittle Rock $           500
1/1/2019BChipsLittle Rock $           450
1/1/2019CIce CreamDenver $           300
1/1/2019CBeerDenver $           600
1/1/2019CPizzaDenver $        1,000
1/1/2019CChipsDenver $           200
1/1/2020AIce CreamNew York $           350
1/1/2020ABeerNew York $           450
1/1/2020AChipsNew York $        1,000
1/1/2020BIce CreamLittle Rock $           200
1/1/2020BBeerLittle Rock $           500
1/1/2020BPizzaLittle Rock $           450
1/1/2020BChipsLittle Rock $           350
1/1/2020CBeerDenver $           200
1/1/2020CChipsDenver $           100

 

To get the difference/ change between the revenue mix of 2019 and 2020, I created a measure "Diff_Mix_btw_Years_Store"

 

Diff_Mix_btw_Years_Store =

 

var _current_mix_ = DIVIDE(SUM(Store[Revenue]),CALCULATE(SUM(Store[Revenue]),ALL(Store[Store])))

 

var _previous_mix_ = DIVIDE(CALCULATE(SUM(Store[Revenue]),DATEADD(Store[Year].[Date],-1,YEAR)),CALCULATE(SUM(Store[Revenue]),DATEADD(Store[Year].[Date],-1,YEAR),ALL(Store[Store])))

 

return

 

CONCATENATE(FIXED((_current_mix_ - _previous_mix_)*100,1)," pts")

 

 

I returned what I need (B-A)

However, if I want to get the B-A value after replacing the row filter with either "product" or "location", I will have to create new measures and replace the Store[Store] in the above measure with Store[Product] or Store[Location]

Like this:

 

Diff_Mix_btw_Years_Product =
 
var _current_mix_ = DIVIDE(SUM(Store[Revenue]),CALCULATE(SUM(Store[Revenue]),ALL(Store[Product])))

var _previous_mix_ = DIVIDE(CALCULATE(SUM(Store[Revenue]),DATEADD(Store[Year].[Date],-1,YEAR)),CALCULATE(SUM(Store[Revenue]),DATEADD(Store[Year].[Date],-1,YEAR),ALL(Store[Product])))

return

CONCATENATE(FIXED((_current_mix_ - _previous_mix_)*100,1)," pts")

 

Is there any way to create one and the only measure that can return the result (B-A) for any row filter that users may apply? In this case, they are Store[Store] , Store[Product] or Store[Location].

 

I do not know if there is any DAX that can detect which column is used as a row filter and send to ALL( ) as a variable.

 

Please kindly help, thank you!

Hi, @Anonymous 

 

According to your description, I think you can simply modify your measure.

Like this:

measure =
VAR _current_mix_ =
    DIVIDE (
        SUM ( Store[Revenue] ),
        CALCULATE (
            SUM ( Store[Revenue] ),
            ALL ( Store[Store] ),
            ALL ( Store[Product] )
        )
    )
VAR _previous_mix_ =
    DIVIDE (
        CALCULATE ( SUM ( Store[Revenue] ), DATEADD ( Store[Year].[Date], -1, YEAR ) ),
        CALCULATE (
            SUM ( Store[Revenue] ),
            DATEADD ( Store[Year].[Date], -1, YEAR ),
            ALL ( Store[Store] ),
            ALL ( Store[Product] )
        )
    )
RETURN
    CONCATENATE ( FIXED ( ( _current_mix_ - _previous_mix_ ) * 100, 1 ), " pts" )
