Filter calculation to apply only on spesific values

Hi,

 

I have created a measure "Quantity (KG) wich shows a value for different weight classes (L, M, S, XL and ML). Now I would need to divide the quantity for weight class ML and add the value ONLY to weight classes M and L.

 

I created the following measure to get the divided value for weight class ML:

 

ML Divide = CALCULATE([Quantity (KG)];'Item'[Weight Class]="ML")/2

 

Now when added to a table it looks like this:

Is it possible to modify the measure so that the ML Divide value only shows in weight classes L and M and in weight classes S and XL it would be blank?

 

Thanks in advance!

@mattih  Try this:

ML Divide =
DIVIDE (
    CALCULATE (
        [Quantity (KG)],
        KEEPFILTERS ( 'Item'[Weight Class] IN { "M", "L" } )
    ),
    2
)

 


Thank you,

Thanks, this was a little closer but I will try to explain more.

 

1. Quantity (KG) needs to be divided by weight class ML so we need the filter for it. ML is its own weight class:

 

ML Divide = CALCULATE([Quantity (KG)];'Item'[Weight class]="ML")/2

 

2. Now we get the divided sum of weight class ML:

So 1007,9 / 2 = 503,97.

 

3. Now I would need to ADD the divided value of ML weight class to weight classes L and M values but keep the same Quantity (KG) values for classes S and XL. I tried implementing your suggestion to a second measure:

 

Quantity (KG) 2 =
IF([ML Divide]<>BLANK();CALCULATE([Quantity (KG)];KEEPFILTERS('Item'[Weight Class] IN { "M"; "L" }))+[ML Divide];[Quantity (KG)])

 

4. With this measure I get the summarization correctly for weight classes M and L but for some reason it returns the value of ML Divide to classes S and XL where I would like it to return the value of Quantity (KG):

I managed to get it working by changing the ML Divide measure like so:

 

ML Divide = IF(CALCULATE([Quantity (KG)];KEEPFILTERS('Item'[Weight Class] IN { "M"; "L" }));CALCULATE([Quantity (KG)];'Item'[Weight Class]="ML")/2;BLANK())

 

Thank you very much for the suggestion @AntrikshSharma !

ML Divide = DIVIDE( Quantity (KG)],2)
ANd then chosse the filters for this visual as Weight class L ans M from filter section 

 

Thanks, but the other weight classes still need to be shown in the visual.
