## Dynamic Total Column based on slicer

Hi Guys,

I have the challenge that I need to show the dynamic total in a separeted column according to a slicer.

For example if I filter 2 countries I need to show the total for these two countries. The reson is because I need this total to be a dynamic denominator for future calculations.

Filter: Selected Australia and Singapore = total of 10

 Country Value Total Dynamic Colum Australia 5 10 New Zealand 3 10 Singapore 5 10 Total 13 10

Slicer: Selected New Zealand and Singapore = total of 8

 Country Value Total Dynamic Colum Australia 5 8 New Zealand 3 8 Singapore 5 8 Total 13 8

Is there anyway to achieve this with DAX?

Thanks!!

Hi @fabdata1207 ,

A calculated column is static, it won't change for slicer selection.

You may try a measure instead.

First you need to create a separate country table for the slicer to select. This country table cannot have a relationship with the main table.

A calculated table:

``Country=DISTINCT('Table'[Country])``

Then, create a measure.

``Total Dynamic Measure = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[Country] in ALLSELECTED(Country[Country])))``

You can check more details from the attachment.

Yes. Create a disconnected table with the values of interest with the DISTINCT or VALUES function, and use that new table/column in your slicer. You can then use an expression like this to get your dynamic total.

Selected Total =
VAR sel =
DISTINCT( SlicerTable[Country] )
RETURN
CALCULATE(
SUM( table[Value] ),
ALL( Table[Country] ),
Table[Country] IN sel
)
