Compute result based on user entered quantity

Hi

 

I am working on a dashboard that will show my employees the amount of raw materials required for a production item.

 

For example, 

 

1 unit of production item C-1234 may require 3 units of C-2233 and 4 units of C-2244 to produce.

 

I want the user to be able to enter an item and a quantity and have the report return the number of units required based on the entered quantity

 

So to continue with the above example if a user enters

 

Item: C-1234 Quantity: 3

 

I would like the report to return: C-2233 9 units, C-2244 12 units

 

Can this be achieved using PBI? Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

 

Thank you!

Hello, yes this is possible using parameters. Go to the modelling tab and the parameters button. This is a GUI version of making a table with GENERATESERIES(). You can then use the list of numbers as multipliers for your scenario in any calculation.
