Calculated Columns totaling in Matrix

Hey All – I need help creating a measure that will give me the right totals


I have a table that has Projects and then Project roles underneath

It has the total Working days in the contract (Max of ContractDays)

Each role has a rate

The Max of ContractRoleHours are the total hours in the contract

The Max of HrsPerDay  is Max of ContractRoleHours / Max of ContractDays

The TotHoursPerDay is Max of HrsPerDay  * Max of ContractDays

The TotDailyValue is Max of HrsPerDay  * Rate


TotHrsPerDay Should = Max of ContractRoleHours. It does for some but not all. I know there are some filter and sum special logic needed in calculating some totals in matrix sometimes, but this is fairly straight forward and I used calculated columns for these values, so I thought it would work. I’m stuck on why it works for some and not all, (And also need to make it work 😊


Thanks in advance

Hi @ctedesco3307 

I couldn't see where it works. However, in general you can do


SUMMARIZE ( 'Table', [Column1], [Column2] ),

CALCULATE ( the max aggregation )


where Column1 and Column2 are the columns placed in the rows of the matrix
