Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

I need some help with formatting my data in order to organize my matrix table correctly. I have searched the web for 2-3 days now trying multiple methods but with no luck on a solution. I have tried writing calculated tables, adding reference tables, doing "Switch" for measured values, etc.....no luck. This table i am loo

king to create has conditional formatting as well. 

 

The only headway i made was combining these methods constructing a single measure with a list of switch values. It does display the table exactly how i want it but then i cannot use conditional formatting. 

 

Attached are the images of what i am trying to do, the old table, what table i need to make, and how the data is organized (all sources organized the same)data formatdata formatnew formatnew formatold formatold formatold v newold v new

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

Hi @jignaski18 ,

 

You also need to add the selection of the measure as in the previous formula should be:

Conditional Formatting=
               SWITCH(TRUE();
                  SELECTEDVALUE(Table[MeasureName]) = 1 && [Measure1] >0 ; "#FFFFFF";
                  SELECTEDVALUE(Table[MeasureName]) = 1 && [Measure1] <0 ; "#000000";
                   ...;...;
                  SELECTEDVALUE(Table[MeasureName]) = 99 && [Measure99] > 0 ; "#123456";
                  SELECTEDVALUE(Table[MeasureName]) = 99 && [Measure99] < 0 ; "#999999"
                 )

 

Should work as expected, sorry for misleading you.

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

Hi @jignaski18 ,

 

You need to create an hierarchy that has the measures you want to calculate and the date so on your matrix you would place on the colums the Measures identification and the date column.

 

The measures identification is basically a table with your calculation names for example:

ID Calculation
1

Measure 1

2 Measure 2
... ...
99

Measure 99

 

Then you need to create a switch measure similar to this:

Selected Measure=
               SWITCH(
                  SELECTEDVALUE(MeasuresIdentication[ID]);
                  1; [Measure1];
                  2; [Measure2];
                   ...;...;
                  99; [Measure99]
                 )

 

Then place this on the values.

 

This should work as expected however you don't present any data and how your measures are calculated so giving you a better example is difficult.

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

Thank you @MFelix . Sorry for not including the data. I have already managed to do that. The problem is since there is only "one" value, you cannot conditionally format each measure. I cannot share the actual data for confidentiality purposes. My DAX is written just as you had suggested. table.png

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

Hi @jignaski18 ,

 

You need to follow the same logic but make a switch stamente with more arguments for example:

 

Conditional Formatting=
               SWITCH(TRUE();
                   [Measure1] >0 ; "#FFFFFF";
                   [Measure1] <0 ; "#000000";
                   ...;...;
                   [Measure99] > 0 ; "#123456";
                   [Measure99] < 0 ; "#999999"
                 )

 

the use this as color if you want to use trafic ligth similars you just need to replace the "#FFFF" by numbers example (1, 2, 3) and then set each one for the sign you need.

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

Unless I am doing something wrong, this switch just takes the first true statement and applies it to the whole table since there is only "one" value.

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

Any reccomendation how to format each value field? I.e Measure 1 is a # and Measure 10 is a %. 

Would i just include it in the "value" meaure? Like:

 

Sumx(table,

switch(table[id],

1,format(Measure1,"0"),

.....

10,format(Measure10,"0.0%")

))

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

Hi @jignaski18 ,

 

You need to use the FORMAT function something similar to:

 

elected Measure=
               SWITCH(
                  SELECTEDVALUE(MeasuresIdentication[ID]);
                  1; FORMAT([Measure1];"0,0%");
                  2; FORMAT([Measure2];"###.###);
                   ...;...;
                  99; FORMAT([Measure99];"###.### $")
                 )

Be aware that the formatting need to be done outside the SUMX function otherwise it will try to sum text values and it will not work.

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

That is what i did try, sorry for not clarifying that. Unfortunatly when I work outside of the SUMX, then my matrix returns empty rows for all regions(districts), groups(crwname), customers. blanks.png

Re: Data Manipulation for Matrix Table

Hi @jignaski18 ,

 

you need to do :

FORMAT (SUMX(......); "%")
