Use Column Headers as Variable in Measure

Hello.

 

I am creating a matrix table to show annualised values. 

My values change based on declared number of years in the Measure. 

 

I have my Years as Column Headers. Is it possible to use the values in the headers as variable year in my measure?

 

Thank you.

Thank you @dearwatson

 

I was able to solve this one by using VAR in my measure. 

 

Thank you!!

In answer to your question I don't think it is possible to use the columns headers directly as a parameter of a measure.

 

But you may find you can use "what if" parameters to achieve what you are after...

Say if you created a parameter for the number of years... or something.

I am facing a similar issue, I want to create a matrix based on user selection for columns and rows.

We have a slicer with column header names, if a column name is selected. I want the Values for that column as rows in the matrix.

Is this possible by using any VAR or Parameter?

Could anyone provide an example?

 

Regards

Thanks
