## Issue in Dax (Caluclated column).

Hello everyone,

I am a novice user in power bi, slowly upgrading myself to multiple scenarios, have recently came across a situation to resolve the output by random change in the rate value passed through a parameter. The issue over here is I have written a switch dax function and applied the logic, however, it gives me output as zero.

Is there any other work around to get the desired results in the "dynamic_bin_column" ? I am attaching the document as well for the solution, please provide a direction/guidance.

Thanks everyone for your valuable time & effort !!

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION  This calculation should be done with a Measure rather than a Column. Here's the DAX for the Measure

``````dynamic_bin_measure = SWITCH (

TRUE,

Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] = 0, 0,

Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] <= SELECTEDVALUE(Input[2 Tier Range]) , 1,

Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] > SELECTEDVALUE(Input[2 Tier Range]) &&  Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] <= SELECTEDVALUE(Input[3 Tier Range]), 2,

Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] > SELECTEDVALUE(Input[3 Tier Range]) &&  Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] <= SELECTEDVALUE(Input[4 Tier Range]), 3,

Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] > SELECTEDVALUE(Input[4 Tier Range]) &&  Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] <= SELECTEDVALUE(Input[5 Tier Range]), 4,

Dyn_Rate[Dyn_Rate Value] > SELECTEDVALUE(Input[5 Tier Range]), 5,

0

)

However there is another problem. You are testing for values of [Dyn_Rate Value] which can be anything from 0 to 100. But all of the Tier values are between 0 and 1 so as soon as [Dyn_Rate Value] is greater than 0, all of your dynamic bin values will be 5. You either need to adjust the Tier values, or adjust the values that [Dyn_Rate Value] can take, or divide [Dyn_Rate Value] by 100 to make it always be between 0 and 1.0.

In the file above I've divided [Dyn_Rate Value] by 100. Regards

@Syndicate_Admin@philiptreacy: Quick question, the way you have explained the scenario is outstanding and has given me the desired output. However, I am thinking into more advance scenario where i have it for multiple parameters. The current pbix has got single paramter passed across multuple product names. However, as i am thinking out loud, what if i pass each paramter rate value per product name/product ID. The reason behind thinking this kind of approach is because each product name/product ID has got disparate tier range values. So, if a user wants to punch in each rate, to each product, How can that be achieved dynamically ? Is there any possible option to solve this scenario ?

I am excited to look forward to your thoughts/solution.

Thanks
