## Variable line by line computation based on value in second table

Hi

Need some help here ... Tryitng to compute a "Currency Impact". Given a "base" table with, say, sales in local currency, and an exchange rate; given a "fxrate" table that is sliced to filter to a unique reference, how can I compute line-by-line and get the total ? The formula needs to be efficient, because there are easily 500'000 rows in "base". Not easy to explain the issue, so I made a little drawing! Any help is higly appreciated ...

## Re: Variable line by line computation based on value in second table

First, you should know that:

1. Calculation column/table not support dynamic changed based on filter or slicer.
2. Measure can be affected by filter/slicer, so you can use it to get dynamic summary result in a visual.

Second, for your case, you could try this way as below:

Step1:

Create a relationalship between Datatable and FXTable by Currency column.(This relationship will be many to many)

Step2:

Then create a measure as below:

``````Impact =
SUMX('Data Table', CALCULATE(SUM('Data Table'[Sales])-SUM('Data Table'[Sales])*DIVIDE(SUM('Data Table'[FxRate]),SUM(FXTable[RefFxRate]))))``````

Result:

and here is sample pbix file, please try it.

## Re: Variable line by line computation based on value in second table

@Lecram36 Based on your data table, it should be something like this, add as a column

``````Sales Impact =
Table[Sales] - ( DIVIDE ( ( Table[Sales] * Table[FxRate] ), Table[RefFxRate] ) )``````

I would  Kudos if my solution helped. 👉 If you can spend time posting the question, you can also make efforts to give Kudos whoever helped to solve your problem. It is a token of appreciation!

@parry2k  Nope, unfortunately not that simple: Table[RefFxRate] is not available. It's in the excel sheet for the demo of the calculation, but it's an external value computed 'on the fly'

ok then you have to share your data the way it look and the model/relationship diagram.
