create static measure

Hi,

 

I am looking for creating a static measure with values 'Yes' and 'No'.

And based on the selection of the Yes or No, I want to out a case statement in another measure.

Following is what is to be achieved:

If SelectedValue = 'Yes', 

Measure1 =Sum( 'Table1'[countNumber] )

if SelectedValue = 'No', 

Measure1 =Sum( 'Table1'[countNumberExcluded] )

else 

Measure1 =Sum( 'Table1'[countNumber] )

 

Nothing can be done on the report view.

Please guide me achieving this.

Thanks in advance.

@dhp , Create a table using enter Data and Have two Values Yes And No.

 

Keep it independent, means do not join with others

 

Then try a measure like

If(SelectedValue(Table[column]) ="Yes" ,Sum( 'Table1'[countNumber] ),Sum( 'Table1'[countNumberExcluded] ) )

@dhp A little hard to follow but in general for this you want to created a completely disconnected table with your values. So create a table using Enter Data and just have two rows "Yes" and "No" in Column1.

Make sure that there are no relationships to this table.

 

Now, create a measure like this:

SelectedValue = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Column1)

Finally, create this measure:

Measure1 = 
  SWITCH(TRUE(),
    [SelectedValue] = "Yes",SUM( 'Table1'[countNumber] ),
    [SelectedValue] = "No", SUM( 'Table1'[countNumberExcluded] ),
    SUM( 'Table1'[countNumber] )
  )

 

 The technique is called the disconnected table trick and you can learn more about it here: In general, to use a measure in that way, you need to use the Disconnected Table Trick as this article demonstrates: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Solving-Attendance-with-the-Disconnected-Table-Trick...
