## Budget Variance - Multiple Slicers

Main Scope

The main idea is to create a price variance between the selected reports, within the selected time frames.

The user of the dashboard will:

1) Select the current budget and period

2) Select the comparing budget and period

Data Setup

The sample dataset contains of the following data:

The Main Data:

- Reports (Categorical variable for the different budget)

- DimDate (Date of expected invoicing)

- Net Sales

- Units

Besides, I created two seperate tables that are not connected to the Main Data:

Slicer1 = VALUES('Main Data'[Report])
Slicer2 = VALUES('Main Data'[Report]) Current Problem:
To create a measure for price variance I will need to create a measure for units and net sales that
1) filters for the selected budget and period in the current period
2) filters the selected budget and period in the comparing period
3) gives the variance of the above selections

Initially, I created a measure that filters only the selected budgets based on the selections of the budgets:
Unit = VAR units =
calculate(sum('Total Data Table'[Invoiced Units]),
filter('Total Data Table','Total Data Table'[Report]=SELECTEDVALUE(slicer1[Report]) ||
'Total Data Table'[Report]=SELECTEDVALUE(slicer2[Report])))

RETURN
if(HASONEVALUE('Total Data Table'[Report]),units,
CALCULATE(sum('Total Data Table'[Invoiced Units]), filter('Total Data Table','Total Data Table'[Report]=SELECTEDVALUE(slicer1[Report])))-
CALCULATE(sum('Total Data Table'[Invoiced Units]),filter('Total Data Table','Total Data Table'[Report]=SELECTEDVALUE(slicer2[Report])))) This formula does not filter for the selected period, only the selected budgets.
I would like to compare different budgets accross different periods.
For Example:
- Compare Budget 1 in period 01/01/2019 - 12/03/2019
- To Budget 2 in period 01/07/2019 - 12/09/2019 I have tried multiple ways to do this, but have not found any that worked; I hope a smart solutions exists to this issue.

@PeterWest , Please refer these measures set 1- Slicer 1, Sclicer 3 and Set 2 - Slicer 2 and Slicer 4

Set 1 =
var _max = maxx(allselected(Slicer3), Slicer3[Date])
var _min = minx(allselected(Slicer3), Slicer3[Date])
return
CALCULATE(sum('Total Data Table'[Invoiced Units]), filter('Total Data Table','Total Data Table'[Report] in allselected(slicer1[Report])
&& 'Total Data Table'[Dimdate] >=_min && 'Total Data Table'[Dimdate] <=_max))

Set 2 =
var _max = maxx(allselected(Slicer4), Slicer4[Date])
var _min = minx(allselected(Slicer4), Slicer4[Date])
return
CALCULATE(sum('Total Data Table'[Invoiced Units]), filter('Total Data Table','Total Data Table'[Report] in allselected(slicer2[Report])
&& 'Total Data Table'[Dimdate] >=_min && 'Total Data Table'[Dimdate] <=_max))

@amitchandak Thank you, this helped me out a lot! I created the two sets within a measure with the following formula:

Total Units =
var set1_max = maxx(allselected(Slicer3), Slicer3[Date])
var set1_min = minx(allselected(Slicer3), Slicer3[Date])
VAR units_set1 = CALCULATE(sum('Total Data Table'[Invoiced Units]), filter('Total Data Table','Total Data Table'[Report] in allselected(slicer1[Report])
&& 'Total Data Table'[Date] >= set1_min && 'Total Data Table'[Date] <= set1_max))

var set2_max = maxx(allselected(Slicer4), Slicer4[Date])
var set2_min = minx(allselected(Slicer4), Slicer4[Date])
VAR units_set2 = CALCULATE(sum('Total Data Table'[Invoiced Units]), filter('Total Data Table','Total Data Table'[Report] in allselected(slicer2[Report])
&& 'Total Data Table'[Date] >= set2_min && 'Total Data Table'[Date] <= set2_max))

VAR Totalunits = calculate(sum('Total Data Table'[Invoiced Units]),FILTER('Total Data Table','Total Data Table'[Report] in allselected(slicer2[Report])
&& 'Total Data Table'[Date] >= set2_min && 'Total Data Table'[Date] <= set2_max ||
'Total Data Table'[Report] in allselected(slicer1[Report])
&& 'Total Data Table'[Date] >= set1_min && 'Total Data Table'[Date] <= set1_max))

RETURN
if(HASONEVALUE('Total Data Table'[Report]),Totalunits,units_set1-units_set2)

If I put the amount of units in a table for the selected budget and the selected time periods. Besides, it gives the variance between them. It is a beautiful dax code. Again, thank you very much! Announcements #### 2023 Release Wave 1 Plans
