how to show formula in a KPI

hi, 

im trying to display a formula in a KPI chart in my power bi app.

the calculation is the Max number of my "ID" column divided by a static number.

i have 2 questions;

how would i include a static number in my dataset? im used to using qlik where you can define a variable and then call that variable in the calucaltion, is there a similar method in power bi?

2. how would i show the calucaltion in a KPI/text box?

i.e something like this is what i want to display:

Marko64_0-1658221626312.png

where 170 is the max number of my ID column and 317 is a static number that can be updated manually.

thanks!

Hi @Anonymous ,

You will be required to create below 3 measure :

1) Max of ID = MAX('Table'[ID]) -> This will give you the maximum value from ID column

2) Static value = 317  -> This will store a static value as per your requirement

3) Calculation = CONVERT([Max of ID],STRING)&"/"&CONVERT([Static value],STRING) -> This will help you show the calculation in KPI card/textbox as below -
