Multiplying a column based on slicer

Hi,

 

I have a data model where I have a day in the year and a certain utlization in one table. For example Day 1 = 0.4, Day 2 = 0.6. Now I also have a table which lists values between 1 and 15. I have put this table in a slicer with 15 different options. 

 

Is it possible to now multiply my utilization by the number selected in my slicer i.e.:

 

Slicer selection = 4

Day 1 = 1.6

Day 2 = 3.2

 

I'm not sure if this is possible or not?

 

Kind regards,

Matthias

@Matthias93,

The value of Day 2 should be 2.4(4*0.6), right? If so, I make a test in the following sample tables.

Create the following measure in the first table.

multiplyMeasure = MAX(Table2[Column1])*MAX(Table1[Column1])


Create a table visual and  test the slicer.

@Matthias93

 

You can use the SELECTEDVALUE function

 

SelectedVALUE(SlicerTableName[SlicerColumnName]) should give you the value selected in the slicer,,, then you can multiply it with any other MEASURE

 

However you can not use it in a calculated column

Re: Multiplying a column based on slicer

Hello Lydia!

 

Your solution worked great, but I was wondering if your solution also applies when using 2 slicers. What I mean is to first choose an option of multiplier, and then choosing a second option to again multiply the total amount from the previous operation.

 

Thanks!
