Subtracting rows based on a visual filter

Hi!

 

I want to calculate the difference between two rows based on filters applied from a plot.

The data is as an example below. When I mark "Apple" and "Banana" in the plot, I would like to have Power BI calculate the delta of weight of those two. (For this example: 100) Similar to any other two selected projects in the scatter plot.

I very much appreciate any effort of help! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Subtracting rows based on a visual filter

Hi @jsils ,

 

You can create a new measure “delta”.

delta =
ABS (
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( 'Table'[Weight] ),
        FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Name] = MAX ( 'Table'[Name] ) )
    )
        - CALCULATE (
            SUM ( 'Table'[Weight] ),
            FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Name] <> MAX ( 'Table'[Name] ) )
        )
)

Then you can select a visual to display it. For example, I used the card visual.

Now, you can mark any two names and the delta will give a difference between them.2-1.PNG
