Create summarize table with if statement

Hello everyone,

I'm creating a scorecard with two main features.  The first is a table with overall KPIs.  This has been straight forward to create.

What I would like to do is populate a table with 3 columns (description, measure, and value) that is populated from different data sources based on the main KPI the user selects.

For example if they click on the COF (Customer Order Fulfillment) KPI, the detailed table will show # of cut cases by material, brand, and customer from the COF data source.  But if they select DPA (Demand Planning Accuracy) KPI that the detailed table will show biggest change in cases by warehouse and business from the DPA data source.

 

My idea was to create a summarized table with 3 standard columns: description, measure, and value that uses an if statement to populate the table based on the selected KPI measure.  However I get a multiple column error.

Ultimately, this is what I'm trying to create, where the user can click on a KPI on the top and they get a detailed view below on a table that pulls from a different data source based on what's selected.

Let me know what recommendation you have to populate a table from various data sources determined by a selected value.

 

Thanks for your help

HI @luketerry ,

>>However I get a multiple column error.

Unfortunately, power bi not support this.

AFAIK, if statement not support to return table or multiple columns as expressions result. In addition, Power bi not support to create dynamic calculated column/table based on filter/slicer.

Re: Create summarize table with if statement

Good to know.  The best work around I can think of is to use the button-bookmark approach where I stack a bunch of detailed tables on top of each other and only display the one based on the button they select.

 

Not as elegant of a solution than what I wanted but it's the best I can do.
