SELECTEDVALUE seemingly does not work

Hi everybody,

 

I'm probably doing something because I cannot get SELECTEDVALUE to work.

 

I have two columns: "CURRENT PLAN" and "PLAN". Both columns have 3 different values: "Plan 2018", "Plan 2019" and "Plan 2020".

 

I'd like to add a slicer for "CURRENT PLAN" and with that slicer only one option of the three can be selected. Then I have a measure displaying the units of that selected plan. The measure formula looks like this:

 

Current Plan Units = VAR SlicerValue = SELECTEDVALUE('Table Plans'[CURRENT PLAN]) RETURN SUMX(FILTER('Table Plans','Table Plans'[PLAN]=SlicerValue),'Table Plans'[Units])/1000

SELECTEDVALUE seems to always go the FALSE route. I don't know why...

 

Thank you already!

Christoph

hi, @ChristophEmrich 

First, for SELECTEDVALUE,

SELECTEDVALUE(<columnName>[, <alternateResult>])

Term Definition
columnName The name of an existing column, using standard DAX syntax. It cannot be an expression.
alternateResult (Optional) The value returned when the context for columnName has been filtered down to zero or more than one distinct value. When not provided, the default value is BLANK().

You couldn't select more than one value in slicer.

Second, from your formula we know that all the column are in the same table, if there is something wrong in here.

 

If you still have the problem, please share some sample data and your expected output.

 

Best Regards,
