what if parameter using user created measure

I have sales data with material, actual_sale, target_sale along with many columns.

I have created measure %achieved_sale which is calculated as actual_sale/target_sale.

%achieved_sale has values from 0 - 500. which means if actual = target , achieved sale=100

 

now i want slicer on %achieved_sale

so i could see material wise actual_sale, target_sale and its related columns when i select %achieved_sale slicer range

eg. if i select %achieved_sale 0 to 50, I want all details of materials whose %achieved_sale is in between 0 - 50

also i want slicer values between min(%achieved_sale) to max(%achieved_sale)

 

is it possible to achieve this with what-if parameter?

Hi @asc ,

 

It seems that you want to use the measure %achieved_sale as a slicer?

 

For your scenario, I'm afraid what if parameter is not your choice.

 

I'm afraid that we cannot use measure as a slicer directly in Power BI.

 

You may try a workaround. Please refer to the similar threads.
