Dynamic Pre/Post Calculation

I'm trying to dynamically calculate for pre/post sales based on an index slicer selection. My dataset looks as follows:

 

IndexTimingTY SalesLY Sales
-4Pre473891263538
-3Pre543166385628
-2Pre764374329274
-1Pre876485183658
0Post563836954786
1Post292737283464
2Post484640234874

 

The formula would be (Post TY Sales - Pre TY Sales) / Pre TY Sales

The result would change based on your slicer selection ex: -3 to 2 or -1 to 1, etc. Thanks in advance!

Hi @mikayla ,


You could create a measure by the following formula:

value =
VAR _presum =
    SUMX ( FILTER ( 'Table', [Timing] = "Pre" ), [TY Sales] )
RETURN
    DIVIDE (
        SUMX ( FILTER ( 'Table', [Timing] = "Post" ), [TY Sales] ) - _presum,
        _presum
    )

The final output is shown below: When the choice of slicer is different(Use Ctrl to select multiple options), the value is also different

@mikaylaYour problem is not clear. Can you elaborate?

Do you want help in writing this measure/calculated column or creating a slicer with ranges?

Of course, let me elaborate. I've already created the slicer with the index range but I am struggling with writing the measure/calculated column as I am fairly new to DAX. Any help is so appreciated! Let me know if I am still not being clear.
