DAX Measure

I am trying to create a measure where when I place it in a Pivot Table the values are displayed properly and not the sum of the values.

I have two tables, see below, and I want to multiply the Qty column by the appropriate pricing in column Price. The tables are called Table1 and Table2 respectively.

I created a measure called:

Prices := Calculate(SUM('Table2'[Price]))

and a measure called

Gross Profit := SUMX('Table1', 'Table1'[Qty] * [Prices]

When the data is displayed in a pivot table, the Prices are summed and I want the values to be the correct prices.

I have even tried the measure Prices := IF(HASONEVALUE('Table2'), Calculate(SUM('Table2'[Price]))) and that doesn't bring me back any value.

The Gross Profit measure works, however, I want the prices to be shown in my table.

Re: DAX Measure

Have you tried using LOOKUP from Table 1 to Table 2 to bring in the price and then multiply that by the quantity? i.e. LOOKUPVALUE(Table2[Price], Table2[Description], [Description])

Re: DAX Measure

Hi @bengtglave ,

 

There should be a relationship between these two tables. Then you can try this formula.

 

Measure = min('table2'[Price]) * sum('table2'[Qty])

Re: DAX Measure

This indeed works when you bring it into the fact table. I was looking for a measure to write where I don't have to bring the variable into the fact table.

Thanks for the help and I'm marking this as solved!
