I have a table with percentage of revenue. It works so long as I don't filter the accounts with a slicer or visual filter. When I use a slicer or visual filter, revenue goes to zero and I don't get the percent of revenue.

I have tried a number of formulas to try to overcome the slicer selection, but nothing has worked. Is there a way to get the value for revenue despite filtering it out with a slicer or visual filter?

The formula for % Stmt looks like this (ALLSELECTED because I was using year selections):

% Stmt = VAR AnnualRevenue = CALCULATE( [Total Revenue], Dates, ALLSELECTED( )) RETURN DIVIDE( SUM( MyTable[Value] ), AnnualRevenue, 0 )

This one does return a percentage, but it makes no sense:

Another % Revenue Formula =

VAR AnnualRevenue = CALCULATE( SUM( MyTable[Value] ), FILTER( ALL( MyTable ), MyTable[Account] = "Revenue" ) ) RETURN DIVIDE( SUM( MyTable[Value] ), AnnualRevenue, 0 )

I have tried using CALCULATETABLE in place of FILTER and I still don't get the correct revenue amount. Likewise, ALL does not help.

How can I get the correct revenue amount regardless of the selection in a visual filter or slicer?

Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you, @v-yuta-msft, you put me on the right track. Here is what worked:

(1) As background, the formula for the [Total Revenue] measure:

Total Revenue = SUMX( FILTER( MyTable, MyTable[Account] = "Revenue" ), MyTable[Value] )

(2) The % Stmt measure. ALLEXCEPT is the key.

% Stmt = //Putting Dates in ALLEXCEPT is what worked. VAR AnnualRevenue = CALCULATE( [Total Revenue], ALLEXCEPT( MyTable, Dates ), MyTable[Account] = "Revenue" ) RETURN DIVIDE( SUM( MyTable[Value] ), AnnualRevenue, 0 )

Hi CS,

Is [Tota Revenue] a measure based on table Dates? If it is, modify your DAX formula like this and try again.

% Stmt = VAR AnnualRevenue = CALCULATE( [Total Revenue], ALLSELECTED(Date[Year Account])) RETURN DIVIDE( SUM( MyTable[Value] ), AnnualRevenue, 0 )

Jimmy Tao
