Compare a measure with column values and conditional format

Hi all,

 

Below is a view that I bring in to a 'table view' in PBI. 'Current_Value' (Table A) is a measure and 'HI HI(red)' (Table B) is a columnar value. I want a logic that compares If Current_ValueHI HI(red), then Current_Value should be color coded to red, else green.

 

I am guessing I have to use the summarize function or values, but can't seem to get the syntax right. Any thoughts?

Re: Compare a measure with column values and conditional format

Hey,

 

from my understanding you should rewrite the measure like so:

 

Conditional_Value = If(HASONEVALUE('Table A'[NAME]),
IF(
    [Current_Value]>SUM('Table B'[HI HI (red)])
    , "#FF0000"
    , "#008000"
)
)

Re: Compare a measure with column values and conditional format

Hi Tom,

 

ConditionalTest.pbix

Please find the link attached.

 

Just to show what I am trying, here is a DAX that is giving me syntax error:

Conditional_Value = If(HASONEVALUE('Table A'[NAME]),
SWITCH(VALUES('Table A'[NAME]),
[Current_Value]>SUM('Table B'[HI HI (red)]), "#FF0000",
[Current_Value]>SUM('Table B'[HI HI (red)]),"#008000"
)
)
