Using all to return a table

Hello,

I have a Fact table like this:

ProductCustomerRegionDateSales


In the middle of a calculation, I would like to put that table in a variable with the following filter:

Based on contextBased on contextBased on contextAny dateBased on context
ProductCustomerRegionDateSales


ALL seems to be the right function but I only manage to use it in a calculation with formula like this:

CALCULATE(
SUM(Fact[Sales] ,
All(Fact[Date]))

How could I use it to return the table above?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Using all to return a table

I'm a bit worried about why you might want to do this as it could lead to performance issues and there might be alternative faster approaches. But to answer your question you could use the CALCULATETABLE function to create a table variable with an altered filter context.

eg.

 

VAR _factAllDates = CALCULATETABLE( Fact, ALL( Fact[Date] ) )

Thanks a lot!

 

Yes, I have some tricky calculation to do and I could not find anyother solution than this... Ultimately, the goal is to design something similar to this:

That's fine and the CALCULATETABLE approach should work, but you might find your performance is better doing some sort of ALL() over your date dimension rather than a CALCULATETABLE over your fact.
