Measure Formula changes depending on Slicer option

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create a measure which will change the formula depending on who is selected on the Slicer

 

We have multiple agents that get a different % of the Margin. In the example below I have two agents and a measure for each agent with the Margin % they get. I want to have one measure which will change depending on who is selected in the slicer

John gets 1% and Tom gets 3%. I want to consolidate this into one measure

 

I've currently got the Agents in a different table as it's part of a Star Scheme in the main report, as well as a date table which as inactive relationships as I use the USERELATIONSHIP function in my measures.

 

Does anyone know how I can do this?

Thanks,

Mike

Create a new table that will store margin values for each agent.

Check and de-activate the relation between Agents and margin.

Create new measure 

 

New Margin % = (AVERAGE(margin[margin]))/100 * [Margin Measure] 

 

Now if you don't select any agent then it will select average margin.

Now create a new slicer from Agent from the margin table.
Output for John :

Please provide what is your expected output? what output your are expecting from new measure ?

My expected outcome is a single measure with a formula that changes depending on who is selected on the slicer

 

Currently there is two measures:

 

John Margin % = (1/100) * [Margin Measure] 

 

 

Tom Margin % = (3/100) * [Margin Measure] 

 

And I want them to be consolidated into one measure
