DAX sumx and if

Hello all, 


I need a little help here. I'm trying to create a new measure that converts a contract value to USD (the project table tells me the currency type of the contract_value). The below measure works for all currencies except for USD:

 

Contract Value (USD) = sumx(PROJECT_INFO, PROJECT_INFO[CONTRACT_VALUE]* LOOKUPVALUE(CURRENCY_EXCHANGE[SELL_RATE],CURRENCY_EXCHANGE[CURRENCY_ID], PROJECT_INFO[CURRENCY_ID]))

 

The currency_exchange table has all the rates except USD (the ERP is a USD based system), so I'm getting no values in the measure. Below is my attempt to forces a USD calculation.


Contract Value (USD) = if(project_info[currency_id]<>'USD', sumx(PROJECT_INFO, PROJECT_INFO[CONTRACT_VALUE]* LOOKUPVALUE(CURRENCY_EXCHANGE[SELL_RATE],CURRENCY_EXCHANGE[CURRENCY_ID], PROJECT_INFO[CURRENCY_ID])), [project_info[contract_value]*1)

Any advice from you pros is greatly appreciated.

As a side note, how did you know the ,1 is an argument? Is it common for DAX? I'm new to Power BI.

You can find the parameter in the documentation.

LOOKUPVALUE( <result_columnName>, <search_columnName>, <search_value>[, <search_columnName>, <search_value>]…[, <alternateResult>])
