How to use the result of a slicer in a new column

Hi

I have a data table with three columns with headings of "A", "B", and "C", respectively, and a slicer with "A", "B" and "C" three options. I wish to create a forth column which deplicates "A", "B", or "C" depending on the selection of the slicer e.g. if select "A" in the slicer, the 4th column of the table will be a duplication of column "A". Is there anyone who could provide a solution?

 

Many thanks

Charlie77

Hi @charlie77 ,

According to my understand, the calculated column could not be dynamical ,so use the following measure instead:

 

duplication =
SWITCH (
    SELECTEDVALUE ( ForSlicer[SlicerValue] ),
    "A", MAX ( 'DuplicationTable'[A] ),
    "B", MAX ( 'DuplicationTable'[B] ),
    "C", MAX ( 'DuplicationTable'[C] )
)

If not, please upload some insensitive data samples and expected output.
