Calculation to a specific channel.

Hi all, 

 

I am creating a report to count the individual sales per channel.

 

This is usually an easy task to master; but I am having to do a different step: 

 

There are 5 distinct channels:

Broadcast

Digital

Social

Offline

Other

 

Before displaying the total sals per each; there should be an underlying measure for Radio's count. 

 

Broadcast = total sales( count of calls * multiplier)

 

How do I incorporate this into a single table along with the count of all the other channels?

 

If you need more information; I will provide!

 

Thanks.

Re: Calculation to a specific channel.

There is a matrix with a final result that looks like this:

 multiple.PNG

 

 

There are multiple Channels in one field.. And one "Total Sales" number that is being filtered by month. 

 

The problem is... there is a different calculation for one specific channel.. that can't be applied to the rest. 

 

The 'Broadcast' channel......

 

The formula for the broadcast channel looks like this:

 

= Total YTD Broadcast Sales + (# of broadcast sales MTD * .168)

 

How do I get this Calculated into this matrix without it being applied to any other channels??

HI @ThePowerBIQueen,

 

>>How do I get this Calculated into this matrix without it being applied to any other channels??

Write a measure to instead the default summary column, add if statement to check channel name to switch different calculation formula.

 

Sample:

 

Check Masure= 
var current_channel=LASTNONBLANK('Table'[channel],[channel])
return
IF(current_channel="Broadcast","specify formula","YTD formula")

Hi @v-shex-msft

 

Thanks for the response. 

 

I used this measure:

 

New Result =
var current_channel=LASTNONBLANK('Channel'[Channels],[Channels])
return
IF(current_channel="Broadcast/Radio",[Broadcast Formula],[Sales Total])

 

But it still did not apply the formula to the Broadcast Channel.. Any thoughts?

 

 

Re: Calculation to a specific channel.

I am wanting to apply the formula to every instance where broadcast is the channel.. is Lastonblank the apppropriate DAX?
