Quick measures are Pre-built or you can say readymade measures. You don’t have to write DAX formula for this, it’s done for you based on input you provide in a quick measure dialog box.
Also it help to you write or understand the DAX formula. So, Let’s start with an example, you can download the sample Dataset from below link-
Follow the below steps-
Step-1: Open Power BI file & Load Sample data set.
Step-2: Right click on ‘Orders’ data set > Then click on ‘New quick measure’
Step-3: After that Quick measure dialog box appears and then select calculations.
Quick measure provides five type categories of calculations and they are-
- Aggregate per category
- Time intelligence
- Mathematical operations
So, let’s start with Mathematical operations, Sample data set screen shot as below-
Now add ‘unit Price’ & ‘Profit’ fields to using quick measure Addition Calculation.
Drag ‘Profit’ & ‘Unit Price’ fields under Base value box and Value to add then click on OK button for further proceed.
Created measure by Quick Measures as below
Unit Price plus Profit = SUM(‘Orders'[Unit Price]) + SUM(‘Orders'[Profit])
Now drag new measure into table visual and it will returns sum of Profit & Unit Price as in new column.
Same you can play with another calculations, process will be same.
