Adding custom row sums to table

Hi All,


I am in the in the process of changing from BI tool Targit to Power BI. I have built a tabular model on top of

my existing data warehouse and I am now creating all my reports in Power BI that I used to have in Targit.

I am using Visual Studio and sql server 2019 (compatability level 1500).


I have an account plan that looks like this in Targit:


You will notice in the bottom I have some custom members which has been created in OLAP model. 


In PowerBI it looks like this:



I am looking for a way to create those custom members in Power BI as well.

Gross Profit for instance is the sum of 00 Revenue and 01 Voyage Expenses.

I can easily calculate it but I need it integrated into the table so I could make a report looking something like below

with the custom members integrated.




Hope you guys have some great ideas

Hi Amit,


I was just wondering if there were a similar function in DAX, as custom members in MDX.

When I connect Power BI to my old OLAP cube it cannot show the custom members it just adds

a field called unknown, so that will definitely not work.

It would be preferable if I could have solved this in the data model rather than the visual but it seems

the way to go now is to find a visual where I can add custom sub totals, as suggested in one of the links.

@LasseAHoei , I am assuming you have few rows values(column used in the row of the matrix), and below you want to add some custom formula. I doubt direct way. You might have to create a custom table
