RLS and different currencies for diff users

Hi Guys

We have a sales team where some reps sell in sterling and some in Euro.
I have a report about to be rolled out to test with some reps in both currencies.

I will use RLS to make sure they only see their data.

One thing I forgot to consider though was currency. I want them to see the exact same report, pulling from the exact same data but to see it in their own currency.

We use a fixed rate of conversion between these currencies internally if that helps. I have some Euro measures in the main dataset which are for example Euro Sales = [total sales] * 1.18

Any help greatly appreciated. Going to test tomorrow with small group so i can run it all sterling for now but would love to get it sorted beforehand if possible.

perhaps I just need to F12 the current report, rename EURO and adjust the measures in all visuals. I can do that, just wondered if there is a better way so that I don’t have two reports to change going forward with updates.


Hi @jonbar123,

Have a look to below video by Alberto from sqlbi.com. Hope this will help you.

thanks for this.

I can see the bones of a solution here.

any further thoughts on how to apply this to my context?

essentially i have a rep name lookup table which contains

Rep code (this is common to the sales table)
Rep name
Currency (Euro/Sterling)

The RLS is using the rep name with roles to only show their own data.
Can i use a calculation group to selectively adjust some but not all measures so that if Euro they multiply by 1.18 (our conv rate). I say not all, as Total Qnty Items would not need to change regardless of the rep.

Hi @jonbar123. A work-in-progress PBIX (with sanitized data, if necessary) and a mockup of your desired outcome would make forum analysis easier. For example, from your first post, my take-away was that you had a single conversion for the whole report; your second post led me to believe the currency conversion is actually needed at the rep level. Perhaps you could create a small sample to clarify.

Thanks for posting your question @jonbar123. To receive a resolution in a timely manner please make sure that you provide all the necessary details on this thread.

Here is a potential list of additional information to include in this thread; 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.

Including all of the above will likely enable a quick solution to your question.
