How to get multiple results from SWITCH() function?

Hi All,

 

I am trying to output multiple results depending on the selected field. 

 

These multiple results are an average, an upper bound and lower bound standard deviation:

This works well as I have put every field into the lines, but I am trying to toggle to share of volume and get the wrong values

These bounds and averages are calculations for the previous metric. So I am trying to make a switch statement for the lines in this visual to select the proper bounds and average depending on the selected metric with the following formula:

Bounds = 
switch(
    SELECTEDVALUE(Range[Metric]),
        "CRT", 'Verizon Call Reason'[YMax CRT],
        "CRT", 'Verizon Call Reason'[YMin CRT],
        "CRT", 'Verizon Call Reason'[Avg CRT],
        "% Share Volume",'Verizon Call Reason'[YMax V%],
        "% Share Volume", 'Verizon Call Reason'[YMin V%],
        "% Share Volume", 'Verizon Call Reason'[Avg V%],
        0
)

But this only gives me an aggregate of the upper, lower, and average line as something I do not need.

How can I keep these bounds depending on the filter measure I select?

The logic behind switch is this:

 

if value equals X than "show me this", otherwise

if value equals Y than "show me that", ...

 

What you've wrote is this:

 

if value equals X than "show me this", otherwise

if value equals X than "show me that", ...

 

However this cannot work since X cannot equal 2 conditions at the same time. You cannot have "CRT" 3 times and "% Share Volume" also 3 times.

 

You need to create 3 separate switch functions:

 

Upper Bound = 
switch(
    SELECTEDVALUE(Range[Metric]),
        "CRT", 'Verizon Call Reason'[YMax CRT],
        "% Share Volume",'Verizon Call Reason'[YMax V%],
        0
)
Lower Bound = 
switch(
    SELECTEDVALUE(Range[Metric]),
        "CRT", 'Verizon Call Reason'[YMin CRT],
        "% Share Volume", 'Verizon Call Reason'[YMin V%],
        0
)
Average = 
switch(
    SELECTEDVALUE(Range[Metric]),
        "CRT", 'Verizon Call Reason'[Avg CRT],
        "% Share Volume", 'Verizon Call Reason'[Avg V%],
        0
)
