Slice value based on disconnected table with dynamic values

Hello,

Is there a solution for the following problem?
I have a measure ( a simple SUM) that is going to be displayed in a Matrix visual.
I need to filter that value based on a selected version from a slicer.
The issue is that the values from the slicer will change in time. So working with SWITCH ( hardcoded values) is not a solution.

 

Is there a way to achieve a measure that is recalculated based on the user selection from a slicer?

 

Now i have the fact table - containing the data used for the SUM and a disconnected table used for slicing the data.

It depends on what you are trying to achieve. If your disconnected table contains values which appear in a column in your fact table, and you want the slicer to choose only those values, you can do something like

Measure with filter = CALCULATE( [Base measure], TREATAS( VALUES('Disconnected table'[Column]), 'Fact table'[Column]) )

Thank you @johnt75 .
I was able to resolve the issue by using SELECTEDVALUE

 

VAR selection =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( Table[ Level 01.Key], [Plan] )
VAR selectioncalculated =
    IF (
        SELECTEDVALUE ( Table[ Level 01.Key]) = BLANK (),
        [Plan],
        CALCULATE (
            [Plan],
            FILTER ( Table, Table[ Level 01.Key] = selection )
        )
    )
RETURN
    selectioncalculated

That's good, but bear in mind it will not work if the user selects multiple options from the slicer, it will perform the same calculation as if they made no selections. TREATAS will work for 0, 1 or more selections

Using TREATAS might be a better solution but keep getting the error:

Not sure if this will work, but you could try duplicating the TREATAS, one version using 'Table'[Version.Version Level 01] and one version using 'Table'[Version.Version Level 01.Key]

Just tried it...not a solution. the message stays the same. But anyway. the solution is ok, just need to make sure to set it to single select.
Thank you @johnt75
