Incorrect Total after what-if parameter

Hi all,

I am building below matrix and need to convert the SqFt to Capacity (CufT) (SqFt * Density).


As 2 warehouses have different Density, and I write below DAX.

However, I still cannot figure out how to get the correct total capacity.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

Capacity (CuFt) =
VAR GSW=if(SELECTEDVALUE(Warehouse[Warehouse])=“GSW”,‘WH Capacity Measurement’[WH CuFt Capacity]‘Density - GSW’[Density - GSW Value],0)
VAR Oneill=if(SELECTEDVALUE(Warehouse[Warehouse])=“Oneill GA”,‘WH Capacity Measurement’[WH CuFt Capacity]
‘Density - ONLGA2’[Density - ONLGA2 Value],0)
VAR Total=GSW+Oneill
if(SELECTEDVALUE(Warehouse[Warehouse])=“GSW”,GSW,if(SELECTEDVALUE(Warehouse[Warehouse])=“Oneill GA”,Oneill,Total))

Sorry for I cannot upload the PBI file now as the file size is too large

Hi @chiu2003, we aim to consistently improve the topics being posted on the forum to help you in getting a strong solution faster. While waiting for a response, here are some tips so you can get the most out of the forum and other Enterprise DNA resources.

  • Use the forum search to discover if your query has been asked before by another member.
  • When posting a topic with formula make sure that it is correctly formatted to preformatted text </>.


  • Use the proper category that best describes your topic

  • Provide as much context to a question as possible.

  • Include the masked demo pbix file, images of the entire scenario you are dealing with, screenshot of the data model, details of how you want to visualize a result, and any other supporting links and details.

I also suggest that you check the forum guideline How To Use The Enterprise DNA Support Forum. Not adhering to it may sometimes cause delay in getting an answer.

Hi @chiu2003,
Thanks very much for post your query into the forum.
To fix the calculation of the measure in the totals you can create the following measures:

Capacity (CuFt) =

VAR _Density_GWS = [Density - GWS Value]

VAR _Density_Oneill_GA = [Density - Oneill GA Value]

VAR _Current_Warehouse = SELECTEDVALUE( Warehouse[Wharehouse] )

VAR _Current_SqFt = SELECTEDVALUE( Warehouse[SqFt] )

VAR _Density = SWITCH(


    _Current_Warehouse = "GSW", _Density_GWS,

    _Current_Warehouse = "Oneill GA", _Density_Oneill_GA


VAR _Result = _Current_SqFt * _Density



Capacity (CuFt) Total =

VAR _VirtualTable =


    VALUES( Warehouse[Wharehouse] ),

        "@Capacity (CuFt)", [Capacity (CuFt)]


VAR _Result = IF(

    HASONEVALUE( Warehouse[Wharehouse] ),

    [Capacity (CuFt)],

    SUMX( _VirtualTable, [@Capacity (CuFt)] )




We create the measure for the records in the table and another measure for the totals that sums all the values of the measure for each individual record.
