WHAT IF DYNAMIC COLUMN

I need to change ranges dynamically and compare them, the idea is to know what happens if we change the goals, how many people would meet or not. What I am trying to do is use "what if" to change the goals and see what happens.

 

EXP=IF([SALES]<SELECTEDVALUE([WHATIF1])&&[SALES]>=SELECTEDVALUE([WHATIF2]);"RANGE1";

              IF([SALES]<SELECTEDVALUE([WHATIF3])&&[SALES]>=SELECTEDVALUE([WHATIF4]);"RANGE2";"RANGE3")

I can't but, i can give another example, i need to use the selectedvalue on a calculated column as simple like new

goal=table[sales]*selectedvalue(table_what_If[nowgoal] and see the result per row (table) not as a measure or in a card  

my problem is that when i try the value of the selectedvalue comes as blanck.

Hi @santiagomur ,

 

calculated columns are not dynamic, but are only calculated when loading.

For dynamic calculations, you must use measures.
