Dax expression for multiple tables columns passing as a filter in calculate measure.

I have few tables - Date, Store, Item , product tables

From Date Table - Date(YEAR), Date(Month)
From Store Table - Store(RUName)

From Item Table - Item(itemName)
From Product Table - Product(ProductName)
And Now I have one Measure ie., [SP]

I am trying to retrieve the [SP] data with all above filter values 

Can I get some logic, how I can pass all those filters in DAX

Hi  @Anonymous ,

 

I think there should be a data table with [Year], [Month] or [YearMonth]/[Date],[RUName],[ItemName],[ProductName] and [Value] columns in it. Measure [SP] is based on [Value] column in data table.

 

So, if you create relationships as amitchandak mentioned, you can filter [SP] measure by slicer or filter by columns in these four tables.

Relationship Sample should looks like as below. These four tables are Dim tables.

Date[YearMonth]/[Date] - Data[YearMonth]/[Date]
Store[RUName] - Data[RUName]

Item[itemName] - Data[itemName]
Product[ProductName] - Data[ProductName]

 

If Date table and Data table only has [Year] and [Month] instead of [YearMonth] or [Date]. There could only be one active relationship. So you can try USERELATIONSHIO function in DAX.

SP =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Data'[Value] ),
    USERELATIONSHIP ( 'Date'[Month], 'Data'[Month] )
)

If there are no relationships between your Data table and these four Dimtables, you can try this code.

SP =
VAR _SELECTYEAR =
    VALUES ( 'Date'[Year] )
VAR _SELECTMONTH =
    VALUES ( 'Date'[Month] )
VAR _SELECTRUName =
    VALUES ( 'Store'[RUName] )
VAR _SELECTItemName =
    VALUES ( 'Item'[itemName] )
VAR _SELECTProductName =
    VALUES ( 'Product'[ProductName] )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Data'[Value] ),
        FILTER (
            'Data',
            'Data'[Year]
                IN _SELECTYEAR
                && 'Data'[Month]
                IN _SELECTMONTH
                && 'Data'[RUName]
                IN _SELECTRUName
                && 'Data'[itemName]
                IN _SELECTItemName
                && 'Data'[ProductName] IN _SELECTProductName
        )
    )

Then you can filter [SP] by slicers or filters from columns in these four dimtables as well.

Hi  @Anonymous ,

Date[YearMonth]/[Date] - Data[YearMonth]/[Date]
Store[RUName] - Data[RUName]

Item[itemName] - Data[itemName]
Product[ProductName] - Data[ProductName]

VAR _SELECTProductName =
    VALUES ( 'Product'[ProductName] )
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Data'[Value] ),
        FILTER (
            'Data',
            'Data'[Year]
                IN _SELECTYEAR
                && 'Data'[Month]
                IN _SELECTMONTH
                && 'Data'[RUName]
                IN _SELECTRUName
                && 'Data'[itemName]
                IN _SELECTItemName
                && 'Data'[ProductName] IN _SELECTProductName
        )
    )

Then you can filter [SP] by slicers or filters from columns in these four dimtables as well.

@Anonymous , if the table which has the base columns [SP] is joined with these tables/dimensions. And these dimensions are fitting that table (on the many side in on to many, and have bi-direction join in case of many to many). Then slicer should automatically filter the measure
