Slicer - Selecting multiple items messes up total value

Hope someone can help.

Basically, I have a few sources of data in foreign currencies which I combine.  I also have a list of exchange rates.  So to get all the values in the same currency, I simply say calculate the sum of the value, times the sum of the exchange rate in the exchange rate list.

It looks like this:

ValueRandBudget = (calculate(sum(BudgetsPowerBI[Value]) * sum(CurrencyConversion[Conversion])))
 
But if I select multiple items (different countries), then the it looks like the conversion is stacked. It's way too high.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi @PowerBINoob321 ,

Firstly you have to bring the conversionrate in to your combined table by creating a calculated column using lookup value funtion based on the country.

After that you can create another column for conversion simply you can say , 

 

BudgetsPowerBI[Value]*BudgetsPowerBI[Conversion]

 

This should help.

I typed up a whole long response, but as I was typing I figured out my problems.  Had to learn Lookupvalue - how did I survive so long without it?!?!

 

Thanks for the awesome quick response.

I learnt:

- Lookupvalue

- Better to expand on you main value table

 

Cheers!
