## Sparkline for Dynamic Measure

I have a table of dynamic measures where I want to add a sparkline for each. The table looks something like this:

 Metric Name Value Metric 1 \$150,000 Metric 2 4.5% Metric 3 6.0%

The "Value" column is a measure set up as follows:

``````Metric Value =
VAR SelectedMetric = SELECTEDVALUE ('Dynamic Metrics'[Metric Name])
RETURN
SWITCH (
SelectedMetric,
"Metric 1", [Metric 1 MTD Value],
"Metric 2", [Metric 2 MTD Value],
"Metric 3", [Metric 3 MTD Value]
)``````

I want to add a sparkline for each of the rows in the table showing weekly values. I've been able to set up individual measures for each sparkline that work when I test them on their own, but as soon as I add them to a dynamic measure setup similar to the formula above where I'm selecting the measure based on SELECTEDVALUE('Dynamic Metrics'[Metric Name]), they no longer work and the sparklines show up as blank.

Is there a way to handle this where I can show the sparkline for a separate measure in each row?

Please update the formula to :

Metric Total2 =
VAR SelectedMetric = SELECTEDVALUE (Metrics[Metric Name])
RETURN
if (ISBLANK(SelectedMetric),"",
SWITCH(SelectedMetric,
"Def \$",[Total Def \$],
"CCIR",[CCIR],
"QER",[QER]))
Result :

Hi @Ritaf1983 ,

Here's a link to the dummy pbix file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_JmmZAI7K61bTAIdDOvpyS29oMu7tVDR/view?usp=drive_link. On the visual, the table on the right is the one I'm trying to get working but the sparkline is showing up as blank. The intent is to have the sparkline for each corresponding metric be the only one shown in that row (so only the ones highlighted in the attached screenshot).

Thank you @Ritaf1983!! This fixed the issue. Any idea why adding the if-isblank logic fixes this? I would think the original formula should give the same result, but obviously it's not.
