## HELP WITH DAX: Simulate Excel What-If-Analysis Goal Seek

Hello everyone,

I need help with one DAX. Actually, I need something that is in excel called 'What-If-Analysis/Goal Seek' .

I would try to explain problem:

I have two known components - example stock (I will name it A) and sales (I will name it B), at the moment.

And I have ratio between them as end of period goal (I will name it GOAL).

My unknown component, the one I need help with, is forecast sale by the end of the period (I will name it X).

A / B = CURRENT RATIO

(A-X) / (B+X) = GOAL

X = ?

If you think you can help me, you can ilustration in excel:

Hi @astojanac ,

1.You can make current ratio as a measure:

``measure=Devide(MAX(A),MAX(B))``

2.Then convert your X expression as below:

x=Devide((A-Goal*B),(Goal+1))

Kelly

Hello @amitchandak ,

I know for What-if parameter, but I can't find the way to use it in my case when I have unknown value in two places at the same time.
