Dynamic Column

Hi guys

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

I need help creating a dynamic column, that switches between Actuals 2018 and Forecasts 2019.

The table currently looks like the below, with forecasts 2019 being the dynamic column:

 

Problem.PNGThe user has to have the option to toggle between actuals 2018 or forecasts 2019. Perhaps a parameter? The option to toggle between these two fields has to appear as a slicer on the report ideally.

When choosing actuals 2018 or forecasts 2019 for the dynamic column, the actual 2019 column would not be affected, but the variance and variance % would change. The calculation for variance = (Actual 2019 - (Actual 2018 or Forecast 2019 - dynamic column). Variance % = Variance / Dynamic column

 

I hope this is clear.

 

Please ask if there is anything that seems unclear.

 

Thanks!

Re: Dynamic Column

Hi @lippert,

 

I made one sample for your reference. Although we cannot achieve the exactly same goal as you want. We can can do the steps as below to work around.

 

1. Enter a table directly as a slicer table.

 

2. Create measures as below.

 

Variance = var _sele = SELECTEDVALUE('Slicer'[slicer])
return
IF(_sele= "Actual 2018",SUM(Table1[Actual 2019])-SUM(Table1[Actual 2018]),SUM(Table1[Actual 2019])-SUM(Table1[Forecast 2019]))
%Variance = var result = [Variance]/SUM(Table1[Forecast 2019])
return
IF(ISBLANK(SUM(Table1[Forecast 2019])),BLANK(),result)

Please check the pbix as attached.
