Freezing filter context while visualizing using a graphs

HI.. I have calculated measure which I am trying to display on a trend line graph. There are two graphs that display 8 weeks historical attrition and 8 week pipline attrition respectively. For simplicity lets say the fomula is sum(week exits)/sum (week head count).


Now..for the pipeline graph, I need to use the the (static) head count value of the 8th week (from historical attr) as denominator, meaning sum(future exits)/sum ( week head count (latest week)). The issue here is when I do so..the result is correct when i use a card visual ..however when I use the graph the same further filters/splits the denominator in context of the future weeks, thus generating an incorrect denominator..


The ask here is can how can I keep the denominator in the measure static (like freezing value in excel) while still allowing the numerator to fitler itself basis the X axis of the the same time the denominator should respond to the slicers and other filters on the page.


Illustration below:

ask: the pipeline attrition measure should use 170 as denomiator (this is been achieved) however it is splitting 170 in context on week 9 and later thus ruining the denominator.

week 22011018%

Hi @shaashn 

Is the value of column [HC] a regular value or a calculated column ? When the week is 9 , what is the value for [HC] ?

If so, can you provide the pbix file and the result you think is correct ? This will help us better deal with the problem.
