Store row value in a var.

How can I store a row value in a var? I have a coulmn in a table called 'Master Data'[Required Staff] that contains the number of staff at an office.  How can I get the row value stored in a var?

 

Was tying something like "Var RequiredStaff = 'Master Data'[Required Staff], but when typing the table name, it only shows measures for the "Master Data" table and not the columns.  Ideally, I dont want to create a measure to use in the Var as trying to create a single measure and not multiple measures.  

 

Hope that makes sense and thanks in advance.

hi @StuartSmith 

Var RequiredStaff = 'Master Data'[Required Staff]

 

works only when you have a proper row contex. Otherwise, try like:

 

Var RequiredStaff = MAX('Master Data'[Required Staff])
