Hi,

i have a data base like  one with columns: with date (by day), a column with hour (hour by hour) and other column with sales values

and i want to obtain in a table like this:

date                        hour         sales              sales0 (only for 15 may 2018)????how

20 may 2018              10              100             100

20 may 2018             11               70                  70

20 may 2018             12               10                 30

20 may 2018            13                50                   5

i made a measure like :

Sales 15may = CALCULATE(average(table[sales]),table[date]="15 may 2018")

## Re: ignore a filter in a measure

Hi,

I hope i understood correctly your question.

Below is the formula i have used to calculate sales for one specific date (in my case it is Revenue for 1January2000):

Sales 1Jan2000 = CALCULATE(

Sum(Sales[Revenue]),

FORMAT('Date'[Date], "MM/DD/YYYY") = "01/01/2000"

)

The table is showing now Sales for Date 1January2000 regardless of the Date filter and whenever the filter is changed the Sales for 1st Jan remain the same. A variance can be calculated after that.

Regards,

Ioana

Hi @cosminc

I can give you something but I think that's not what you want.

Why do you need sales for the 15 may 2018 ? To make a difference between two dates ?

You can add graphs / card box to your file and choose wich one will filter other visuals or not

## Re: ignore a filter in a measure

Hi

yes i want to make another measure with % variation, not diffence but that's the point

the example with date was for an easier understanding, in reality my base has other column - i just want to add a column which contains data for a specific value form a column; and when i choose other value in filter i want that specific column to stay with fixed data and to compare with the column with the data for the value selected

can you give me a formula?

thnaks a lot!

## Re: ignore a filter in a measure

the variance not work, is it because i have to make these two measures as columns?

thanks

## Re: ignore a filter in a measure

Hi cosminc,

Am I right in saying you are trying to compare the hours of a certain day (May 15th) with another?

I don't think you need a calculated column, the following two measures worked for me.

1) Measure = CALCULATE(sum(YourTableName[sales]),filter(ALLEXCEPT(YourTableName,YourTableName[hour]),YourTableName[date]=DATE(2018,05,15)))

2) Variance = [Measure]-sum(Sheet1[sales])
