I am trying to create a division calculation on top a numeric column derived using a switch statement.
Codeval = SWITCH('Table'[Index], "1", 1, "2", 1, "3",1, "4",1, 0).
"Index" column is nested index created and defined as text for avoiding auto aggregation of the index numbers in previous calculations.
Expecting results like "AvgSalesby4" column in the below screen shot. AVGsale formula performs SumofSale/1 instead of Sumsale/4, please let me know what is the issue. Tried summarize function by creating a table was not helpful.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the reply, i am assuming its aggregate attribute. i am new to Power BI but have worked on various other BI technologies. based on its properties i see default summarization as "sum" and icon symbol is same of that of the other numeric metrics like SumSales.
If i tried to use SUM() on Codeval = Sum(SWITCH('Table'[Index], "1", 1, "2", 1, "3",1, "4",1, 0)), i get this error - The SUM function only accepts a column reference as an argument.
