## Shorten DAX Formula

Hi Expert

I have the following DAX which i write VAR for each M period - how couldi possibly shorten the measure to something managable

VAR M1 =
Calculate([Running Total],
Input[Year] = MonthYear &&

Input[Terms] = "BTMT" &&

Input[BB/FF] = "BB" &&

Input[Time Period No] ] = " &&

Input[BB] = Product &&
Input[M Column] = "M1"

VAR M2 =
Calculate([Running Total],
Input[Year] = MonthYear &&

Input[Terms] = "BTMT" &&

Input[BB/FF] = "BB" &&

Input[Time Period No] ] = " &&

Input[BB] = Product &&
Input[M Column] = "M2"

Return

M1+M2

the issue is i am doing this for all period upto M45 hence the DAX has become nearly 400 lines long.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Please try to use the following measure:

``````M1+M2 = Calculate([Running Total],
Input[Year] = MonthYear &&

Input[Terms] = "BTMT" &&

Input[BB/FF] = "BB" &&

Input[Time Period No] ] = " &&

Input[BB] = Product &&
Input[M Column] IN{"M1","M2"})``````

@Anonymous , With your formula, Not sure where calculate is ending

Try this to merge

Input[M Column] in {"M1", "M2", "M3" ,//Add others

}

Hi Amit - this is not working as i the value for each M value has to end up in the correct Month Column...in my matrix table...

@Anonymous ,What are you trying to achieve here. Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
