## Reference fields/numbers in matrix created in other page

Hi all

Would it be possible to reference one field (number value) that was calculated through a matrix in another page?

E.g. one value calculated in the matrix is '1.5', how do I reference (like in Excel) that value to make it show up in another page through a card or other type of vizualisation.

kind regards

Hi @nicolver,

The matrix is a visual which is different from the Excel cell, which can't be located. So we are not able to reference matrix value in another report page directly. In your scenario, you can create a measure to return desired values then display in another report page.

Measure = calculate(sum([Opening Balance]),filter(ALL('Table1'),'Table1'[Account Type Description]="Left"))

No, we can't. But you can create a measure which will display the same value as a matrix.

What's logic involved in the matrix? Can you provide more details?

Hi Sunkari, thank you for your response. Much appreciated. In the pictures you can find one of the less complex examples of a matrix I have made.

Say for example, this matrix is generated on the 'general ledger' page. In the 'Summary' page however, I want to highlight the value 45,685,016.15 (automatically), this is the opening balance of account type Bank.

How would I go about doing this? I know this can be recalculated, but it would be very time-intensive to do those calculations twice as there are a lot.
