Multiply conditions return different results

Hi all, 

 

New to dax here. I have one condition that I need to return values with multiplication and I was able to make it work with the syntax below

 

VAR Sample1 = CALCULATE ([Measure1], 'Account'[Account Level 1] = "A")

RETURN
[Measure1] * 0.5

 

Now I need to include another condition where if 'Account'[Account Level 1] = "B", return [Measure1]

 

How should I write it?

 

Thanks!

Hi @fzhang ,

 

You could create a measure like below:

 

Measure =
IF (
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Account'[Account Level 1] ) = "A",
    [Measure1] * 0.5,
    IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Account'[Account Level 1] ) = "B", [Measure1] )
)

Hi @fzhang ,

 

I suggest you use SWITCH to define multiple conditions

For example:

SWITCH(
TRUE(),
'Account'[Account Level 1] = "A", [Measure 1] * .5,

'Account'[Account Level 1] = "B", [Measure 1]

)
