Dynamic calculation in text statements

HelHi All,

 

Can you please help me on one more thing I am looking for something like below

a brand sale 98 Percent  from Asia

b brand sales 80 percent from Europe 

Here each text statement has a calculated value like 98 and 80 which are dynamic when we select filters. This we have achieved in tableau. can we achieve this in Power BI

Please let me know.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Kumar.

You can use selectedvalue() to get the brand or area. https://www.sqlbi.com/articles/using-the-selectedvalue-function-in-dax/

Example

message =
VAR _brand =
    CALCULATE (
        SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[brand] )
    )
VAR _sales = [Sales] //sales measure
VAR _area =
    CALCULATE (
        SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[area] )
    )
VAR _message = _brand & " sale " & _sales & " Percent from " & _area
RETURN
    _message

Re: Dynamic calculation in text statements

Hi @SANTOSHR,

I think you need to do some transform in query editor side to create calculation columns to extract specific value form your text statement, then you can simply calculate on these new columns.

 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WSlRIKkrMS1EoTsxJVbC0UAhILUpOzStRUEgrys9VcCzOTFSK1YlWSkJSVqxgYaBQAFUHVuZaWpRfkKqgFBsLAA==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Test = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Test", type text}}),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Merged", each Text.Combine(List.ReplaceMatchingItems(Text.Split ([Test], " "),{{"brand", ""},{"Percent", ""},{"percent", "" },{"sale", ","},{"sales", ","},{"from", "," }}))),
    #"Split Column by Delimiter" = Table.SplitColumn(#"Added Custom", "Merged", Splitter.SplitTextByDelimiter(",", QuoteStyle.Csv), {"Brand", "Percent", "Region"}),
    #"Changed Type1" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Split Column by Delimiter",{{"Brand", type text}, {"Percent", Int64.Type}, {"Region", type text}})
in
    #"Changed Type1"
