## Condition a measure by what is in scope in the graph

I've got an histogram with MeasureA=SUM([ValueA]) by Year and Month based on fields on TableA.

I've got TableB with field [ValueB] and MeasureB=SUM([ValueB]).

I would like to create a MeasureC=MeasureA+MeasureB where MeasureB adds its value on the histogram only on current year bar or current year and current month.

Is it possible?

Hi, @AGo

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario.

Table A: Table B: You may create measures as follows.

``````MeasureA = SUM('Table A'[ValueA])

MeasureB = SUM('Table B'[ValueB])

MeasureC =
var _currentmonth = MONTH(TODAY())
var _currentyear = YEAR(TODAY())
var _date = MAX('Table A'[Date])

return
IF(
MONTH(_date) = _currentmonth&&YEAR(_date)=_currentyear,
CALCULATE(
[MeasureA],
FILTER(
ALL('Table A'),
'Table A'[Date].[MonthNo] = _currentmonth&&'Table A'[Date].[Year]=_currentyear
)
)+
CALCULATE(
[MeasureB],
FILTER(
ALL('Table B'),
'Table B'[Date].[MonthNo] = _currentmonth&&'Table B'[Date].[Year]=_currentyear
)
),
[MeasureA]
) ``````

Result: Best Regards

Well yes but that really depends on your datastructure to have an exact answer. It will be somewhere along the lines of this:

``````MeasureC =
VAR _curSelectedYear = YEAR(MAX(Table[Date]))
VAR _curSelectedMonth = MONTH(MAX(Table[Date]))
VAR _currentYear = YEAR(TODAY())
VAR _currentMonth = MONTH(TODAY())
VAR _toAdd = IF(_curSelectedYear = _currentYear && _curSelectedMonth = _currentMonth, [MeasureB], 0)
RETURN

SOmething like this?

Kind regards
