## Combining Two Measures

Hi All,

I'm trying to create a measure which is a combination of two different measures and which changes in line with a date slicer.

Example

There are two data tables with actual sales and projected sales covering the same time period. So when the date filter is set to March 22 the expected outcome is below:

Actual Sales for dates before or equal to the filter and projected sales for dates coming after the date filter In power bi so far I have two separate measures Sum(Actual Sales) and Sum(Projected Sales).

However not sure how I would go about combining them based off the datefilter.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Hi @Peppearson,

You can try using:

``Combined = CALCULATE(SUM('Table1'[Actual Sales]), FILTER('Table1', MONTH('Table1'[Date])<=MONTH(SELECTEDVALUE('Filter'[Date])))) + CALCULATE(SUM('Table2'[Projected Sales]), FILTER('Table2', MONTH('Table2'[Date])>MONTH(SELECTEDVALUE('Filter'[Date]))))``

Works for you? Mark this post as a solution if it does!

Hi @Peppearson ,

Please refer to my pbix file to see if it helps you.

Create a measure.

``````Measure =
VAR _selecteddate =
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[Date] )
VAR _1jie =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( Actual[Actual Sales] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( Actual ),
Actual[Date] = SELECTEDVALUE ( Actual[Date] )
&& Actual[Food Type] = SELECTEDVALUE ( Actual[Food Type] )
)
)
VAR _2jie =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( Projected[Projected Sales] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( Projected ),
Projected[Date] = SELECTEDVALUE ( Actual[Date] )
&& Projected[Food Type] = SELECTEDVALUE ( Actual[Food Type] )
)
)
VAR _selectedfood =
SELECTEDVALUE ( food[Food Type] )
RETURN
IF (
_selecteddate >= SELECTEDVALUE ( Actual[Date] )
&& _selectedfood = SELECTEDVALUE ( Actual[Food Type] ),
_1jie,
_2jie
)
`````` If I hvae misunderstood your meaning, please provide  desired output with more details.

Hi @Shaurya
I used a variation on your dax code but turned both calculate formulas into variables.
I also replaced the below in both formulas with the parameter value that I'm using.

`MONTH(SELECTEDVALUE('Filter'[Date])`

See below what the code ended up like.

Combined =

Var Actual Sales
CALCULATE(SUM('Table1'[Actual Sales]), FILTER('Table1', MONTH('Table1'[Date])<=Parameter[Parameter Value]))

VAR ProjectedSales
CALCULATE(SUM('Table2'[Projected Sales]), FILTER('Table2', MONTH('Table2'[Date])>Parameter[Parameter Value]))

Return
If(ActualSales=0,
ProjectedSales(measure),
ActualSales+ProjectedSales
