I'm trying to create a measure, but am getting the "single value cannot be determined" error. I successfully created this a calculated column, but hope to use a measure instead.
I'm trying to break out amounts by transaction type. In this example, I want a measure that returns only "forecast" transaction amounts...
IF ('SALES_TABLE'[TRANSACTION_TYPE] = "FORECAST",
Breaking out amounts by transaction type would allow me to populate a Power BI table as follows...

My example is a simplistic version of what I'm actually needing it for. Just wanted to lay out the goal of a measure in a very basic fashion. The reasons I would like to be able to have "transaction type" measures include...
(1) To use the Actual and Forecast numbers to then calculate Variance and Variance % in a table/matrix format...
(2) To have the ability to create synthetic transaction types without grouping (eg, using Open Orders twice in the same chart)...

If you just want to transform your column to measure you could try this formula
Measure = CALCULATE(SUM(SALES_TABLE[Amount]),FILTER(SALES_TABLE,SALES_TABLE[TRANSACTION_TYPE]="FORECAST"))+0

Drag Customer to the Row labels and Transaction type to the column labels. Write this measure
Hope this helps.
