Retrive slicer value to add in formula. (Column)

Hi all

I am a pretty new user to Power BI and i have encounter a problem with the Slicer that i do not understand.

 

I want created a new column in a table with the condition:

(Month1 > month2 && month1 = (the Slicer value) ;"YES";"NO")

 

I have been able to create (Month1>Month2 && Month ="201905" ;"YES";NO") 

Is it possible to do this (get the slicer value a variable for my column formula)

 

Thanks so much for all the help i can recive.

Hi @Wresen ,

 

You cannot do this in a calculated column, as calculated column always returns static value once it has been initilized. However, you can achieve that via a measure.

Measure =
IF (
    SELECTEDVALUE ( TableName[Month1] ) > SELECTEDVALUE ( TableName[Month2] )
        && SELECTEDVALUE ( TableName[Month1] )
            SELECTEDVALUE ( SlicerTable[SlicerColumn] ),
    "YES",
    "NO"
)
