## need help with dax

Hi,

I have a static table(table1) called date contain Month, Year, Quarter and then i would like to create a calculated column using that static table

DAX:

IF(Hasonevalue(table1), switch(values(table1), "Month",  Year([Date]) & " " & Month([Date]), "Year", Year([Date]), "Quarter", Year([Date]) & " " & Quarter([Date]))

When user select month  then the calculated column should show Yearmonth, If user select Quarter then Year Quarter.

 Table1 Month Year Quarter If user select Month Output Calculated column 2020 01 2020 02 2020 03

Then i will use that calculated column as slicer.

Thanks,

## Re: need help with dax

Hi,

Please try to create a calculated table:

``````Table 3 =
UNION (
SELECTCOLUMNS (
'Table 2',
"Date", FORMAT ( 'Table 2'[Date], "YYYY MM" ),
"Group", "Month"
),
SELECTCOLUMNS (
'Table 2',
"Date", FORMAT ( 'Table 2'[Date], "YYYY" ),
"Group", "Year"
),
SELECTCOLUMNS (
'Table 2',
"Date", FORMAT ( 'Table 2'[Date], "YYYY q" ),
"Group", "Quarter"
)
)``````

Choose this table's [Group] as one slicer for end user and this table's [Date] as another slicer for you to choose.

The result shows:

See my attached pbix file.
