Return field value from Virtual table (VAR) in measure

Hi,

 

If I'm using virtual table in my measure, what function to display it?

So I have measure like this :

MeasureType =

VAR VirtualTable =
CALCULATETABLE(
ADDCOLUMNS(
            FactInternetSales,
            "GroupType", IF ([Value1] < 10, "Small", "Big")
        ),
        ALLSELECTED( DimDate[Date] )
    )
   
Return ????
 
What should I use in "Return" to display VirtualTable[GroupType]
 
Thanks,

Hi @admin_xlsior 

MeasureType =
VAR VirtualTable =
    CALCULATETABLE (
        ADDCOLUMNS (
            FactInternetSales,
            "GroupType", IF ( [Value1] < 10, "Small", "Big" )
        ),
        ALLSELECTED ( DimDate[Date] )
    )
RETURN
    CONCATENATEX ( VirtualTable, [GroupType], ", " )

Hi thanks,

but I had to ask why CONCANTENATE ? It is to combine text right?

My expectation for the display result is actualy only 1 word.

 

thanks,

It's just to cover for the possibility that there were more than one and avoid errors. In any case, don't worry, the concatenatex will work just as well with only one word
