Return value of Column based on measure calculation in new measure otherwise return textstring

Hi all,

I need a dynamic calculation, that based on filters and slicers always will group countries with less than 1% of revenue as "Other Countries". Otherwise the name of the country should be taken from the Country Name Column.

The Code below is able to find all countries with less than 1% and return that value or the string "Other Countries" depending on what I put into the code.

 

But I can not return the name of the country with the rest of the code and hope that you can help?

 

The error message I get, when I try to insert the country is 
"A single value for Column "Country Name" in Table DimCountry can not be determined.

This can happen when a measure formula refers to a column that contains many values

without specifying an aggregation such as min max count or sum to get a single result.

 

Regards
Jørgen

After one day of struggling, I found the code myself:

Test2 Country =
SWITCH (
    TRUE (),
    DIVIDE (
        [Total Amount LCY],
        [Total Net Sales LCY]
    ) > 0.01MAX ( Dimcountry[Country Name] ),
    "Other Countries"
)
