DAX Table with a variable based upon a selected value in a silicer

I have a DAX Table defined as follows:

JCTransactions =

var JCType=IF(NOT ISEMPTY(vwJCTransactionsRev2),SELECTEDVALUE('ProjectCalc'[Calc Method]))

var JCProject =
"AccountingYear", IF(JCType="Year",0,[AccountingYear]))

Return JCProject
The Accounting Year column noted above is a variable. If the selected value in a slicer is equal to "Year", then the value should be zero, otherwise the data from the source should be from the [AccountingYear] Column.

So the "AccountingYear" Column in the grid visual the data will either be rolled up for one line item for each project number, or it will have multiple line items displayed based upon the Project Number and the "AccountingYear" column.

This would be either a Summary DAX table or a Detailed DAX Table in the visual grid, based upon the selected value in the slicer.

The results don't change in the AccountingYear column (it's always showing the AccountingYear value, it doesn't shift from "AccountingYear" value to the Zero, yet the selection is displayed correctly  in the grid for the JCType Column. 

How do I resolve this DAX Code to return the expected results?
Thank you

First, I really need to ask why do you need a calculated table. It seems to me that you only need a disconnected slicer with a dynamic measure for that

Calculated tables aren't dynamic based on slicer selections.  They're populated on data refresh and don't change after that.

I have used the slicer in formulas which do recalculate in calucated tables. This one is not working the same way.
