currency conversion help please

hi everyone

 

so i have a sql direct query with several tables;

 

table1 = financials

table2 = conversionrates

 

 

table1 has about 20 columns in sqlazure that has a bunch of numeric AUD data

 

table2 has 10 different conversion rates which are AUD to for example USD and AUD to Euro and so on

 

(my customer sets the conversion rates)

 

so how can i create a measure or slicer that will allow me to pick say USD or EURO or GBP to see my financial data in that currency with my conversion rates?

 

sorry if this is just too hard...i can do it in sqlazure and create 10 additional columns and rows but surely this is what measures are for right??

 

thank you all so much in advance Smiley Happy Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

You can use some measure like below. Check more details in the attached pbix.zip

converted sales =
IF (
    ISFILTERED ( conversionrates[To] ),
    SUM ( financials[sales] ) * MAX ( conversionrates[rate] ),
    SUM ( financials[sales] )
        * MAXX (
            FILTER ( conversionrates, conversionrates[To] = "USD" ),
            conversionrates[rate]
        )
)
//BY DEFAULT, it converts to USD
