Using * -1 with a Dax measure

Power BI Community Good Day!
 
The Dax below is giving me a positive value. What do I have to do to modify the Dax with * -1 to make it a negative value?
 
Net Timing = CALCULATE(SUM(metricssalescustomer[amount]),metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1] = "Lost - Timing" || metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1] = "Decline - Timing" || metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1]= "Upsell - Timing"|| metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1] = "New - Timing")
 
Much appreciate your time
 
Thank you

Hi @PBI-Curious ,

 

You can try below code:-

Net Timing =
VAR result =
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( metricssalescustomer[amount] ),
        metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1] = "Lost - Timing"
            || metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1] = "Decline - Timing"
            || metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1] = "Upsell - Timing"
            || metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1] = "New - Timing"
    )
RETURN
    result * -1

 

Thanks,

Samarth

You can just stick a "-" in from of CALCULATE or SUM too but you may want to keep more visible than just a single character.

 

I'd probably do something like this:

Net Timing =
CALCULATE (
    -1 * SUM ( metricssalescustomer[amount] ),
    metricssalescustomer[sales_type_lvl1]
        IN { "Lost - Timing", "Decline - Timing", "Upsell - Timing", "New - Timing" }
)

Hello Alexis

Will give it a try.
