I'm looking for a smart way, using a measure, to assign a discount value against a customer.
I have 2 tables Transactions and DiscountCriteria. I would like to SUM the Tons for each Company, and then depending on the Total SUM, apply a discount e.g. Company A have 1.8 Tons so they would get a 0.03 discount (discounts are all greater than).
I know I could do this by writing a large IF measure, but I'm wondering if there was a better way to do this.
Thanks @Greg_Deckler, I've gone with the tried and tested SWITCH(TRUE()) formula, how could I have forgot about this beauty:
Discount - Volume =
AND ( SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) > 2, SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) <= 5 ), 0.01,
AND ( SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) > 5, SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) <= 9 ), 0.02,
AND ( SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) > 9, SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) <= 12), 0.03,
AND ( SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) > 12, SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) <= 14), 0.04,
SUM ( SAGE_Extract[Tons] ) > 14, 0.05
This has raised the next issue for me. Every row in the Transactions table has a currency against it e.g. "USD" or "GBP". I would like to add something like this to my measure:
If the currency = "USD" then multiply the discount by my Currency Conversion Rate measure.
@NipponSahore, I used a 2nd measure similar to this:
Measure = IF(HASONEVALUE(SAGE_Extract[Symbol]),IF(VALUES(SAGE_Extract[Symbol]) = "USD",[Discount - Volume]*'Exchange Rate'[Exchange Rate Value],[Discount - Volume]))
I might re-visit this in the future to see if I can combine the 2 measures into 1, but I am happy for now.
