CALCULATETABLE(<expression>,<filter1>,<filter2>,…)

Term

Definition

Expression

The table expression to be evaluated

filter1 , filter2 ,…

A Boolean expression or a table expression that defines a filter

The expression used as the first parameter must be a function that returns a table.

The following restrictions apply to Boolean expressions that are used as arguments:

  • The expression cannot reference a measure.

  • The expression cannot use a nested CALCULATE function.

  • The expression cannot use any function that scans a table or returns a table, including aggregation functions.

However, a Boolean expression can use any function that looks up a single value, or that calculates a scalar value.

A table of values.

The CALCULATETABLE function changes the context in which the data is filtered, and evaluates the expression in the new context that you specify. For each column used in a filter argument, any existing filters on that column are removed, and the filter used in the filter argument is applied instead.

This function is a synonym for the RELATEDTABLE function.

The following example uses the CALCULATETABLE function to get the sum of Internet sales for 2006. This value is later used to calculate the ratio of Internet sales compared to all sales for the year 2006.

The following table shows the results from the following formula.
