Dynamic Data shapping


I'm trying to shape the data and arrive at the DAX to calculate the Variance column. 


1. Budget is the base column

2. Based on the filter selection Submission Month, I should show sum(Volume)

3. All the category of Submssion months and the Volume will be in same column

4. If I select Mar from the slicer Submission month, then Budget (Volume) - Mar(Volume)

5. If I select Jan from the slicer Submission month, then Budget(Volume) - Jan(Voume)

6. It should be dynamic

7. Every month the monthly dataset will be appended

@kalyanil ,


Create a measure using dax as below:

Result = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Volme]), FILTER(ALL('Table'), 'Table'[Submission Month] = "Budget")) - CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Volme]), ALLSELECTED('Table'))

Thank you for sharing me the DAX. This works 50%, because whenever I select the Month from the filter the Budget value is also getting changed along with the Month selection value. But the Budget value should remain as 1000 and only the month value should change in the table.

@kalyanil ,


I'm confused on your description, could you please show the expected result?

If you are just summing up all of Budget or Month and it does not matter the individual rows this might be OK, Typically though you would have Budget and Monthly data in separate tables.

You should be able to do something like:

Measure =
VAR __Budget = SUMX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),[Submission Month] = "Budget",[Volume])
VAR __Month = SUM('Table'[Volume])
__Budget - __Month

This is not working, I'm getting the total sum value irrespective of the month values.

Thank you for yor reponse. But one question, in the DAX, you are summing up all the volume in the Month right?


But, the sum(Volume) should depend on the filter selection. Ex., if I select Jan from filter then Budget(volume)-Jan(volume), if I select Feb from the filter then Bedget(Volume)-Feb(Volume).


Please help me to understand this.

I will try this today and let you know. thank you

@kalyanil , is this the base data. It does not seem like the correct data model. Budget as word and month in same column
