## DAX snytax to replace measure values with another value

Hello,

I have a measure that calculates sum of sales. I want to be able to replace data from this measure, and use it to aid in projections. Currently the formula I have adds \$3000 to every available line regardless of filters. Please see below the example of what I would like to happen.

Example Table Visual NOT Dax Table

 Starting Table Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Total Sales \$           873,629.95 \$  1,023,080.00 \$  149,450.05 \$  2,046,160.00 \$   872,075.42 \$  1,236,366.00 \$  6,200,761.42 Replace with Feb Sales 3000 End Result Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Sales \$           873,629.95 3000 \$  149,450.05 \$  2,046,160.00 \$   872,075.42 \$  1,236,366.00 \$  5,180,681.42 What if Parameter = \$3000 Current formula not working Calculate(sum(salestable[sales]))-(Calculate(sum(sales),Date[Month])+What if Parameter)

@rtaylor that is what I was looking for, selected month

``````My Measure =
IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( Table[Month selected by user] ) = SELECTEDVALUE ( Datatable[Month] ), [What if parameter value], SUM ( Table[Amount] ) )``````

I would 💖 Kudos 🙂 if my solution helped. 👉 If you can spend time posting the question, you can also make efforts to give Kudos whoever helped to solve your problem. It is a token of appreciation!

@rtaylor what is the business logic to which month sales you want to replace with what-if parameter value, it is not clear from your post. In your example you did it for feb but why feb, why not another month?

Thanks @parry2k for responding.

Let's say I have table of financial projection data created by an analyst and this info is given to a director. The director now wants to see this same results but 3000 in sales february. Because a refresh would take too long. I would like to use
a what if parameter to replace the value.

February is just a random month. It could be any month. Also the syntax I wrote in my earlier example was just shorthand.

@rtaylor it is not very clear, are we replacing all month values by what-if parameter or there is a logic which month with have what-if parameter. Does it make sense ?

## Re: DAX snytax to replace measure values with another value

Okay I understand.

The end user should be able to select any month and replace that value with a what if parameter.

Below is what I have so far. I didn't want to post this because right now I'm focused replacing the value for one deminsion with a what if parameter.

Var yearselect1 = What_if_Year_End_Year_Select_1[What_if_Year_End_Year_Select_1 Value]
Var treatas1 = INTERSECT(values(ENTRY_Financial_Statement_Entry[Budget_Summary_Line]),values(W_Choice_Year_End_Choice_1[Budget_Summary_Line]))
Var treatasdate1 = TREATAS(values(W_Choice_Year_End_Month_Choice_1[MonthNameShort_FiscalYear]),'Date'[MonthNameShort_FiscalYear])
Var catamount1 = What_if_Year_End_Amout_1[What_if_Year_End_Amout_1 Value]*10000
Var calctreatas1 = calculate(ProjAmout,'Date'[FiscalYear] = yearselect1,treatas1,treatasdate1)* calculate(percenttotalcalc,treatas1,treatasdate1)
Var calctreatasnodate1 = calculate(ProjAmout,'Date'[FiscalYear]=yearselect1,treatas1)* calculate([Financial_Statment_Ratio],treatas1)

Return
(Financial_Projection_II]-calctreatas1)+(catamount1)
