I have a calculated formula in SSAS which calculates the Budget Variance. On Powerbi report some of the values says "Ïnfinite". The formula as follows:

'iif(
( ([Measures].[Budget] - [Measures].[Actual])
/ [Measures].[Budget]) < 0,
( ([Measures].[Budget] - [Measures].[Actual])
/ [Measures].[Budget])*-1,
( ([Measures].[Budget] - [Measures].[Actual])
/ [Measures].[Budget]))'

Any advice on how to change this formula to cater for the Infinite values?

    Hi @Marius van Dyk ,

    About the values says infinite, it may due to the [Measures].[Budget] contains zero or blank.

    You may use DIVIDE function to avoid this.

    Details please refer to :dax-divide-function-operator

    Regards,

    Zoe
