## Custom Total Column

Hello,

I am trying to create a custom calculation for my total column in a matrix and I'm not sure how to configure that best. My matrix looks like this currently, with the Groups being my rows and my Categories being my columns:

 Category 1 Category 2 Category 3 Group 1 0 5 12 Group 2 5 9 15 Group 3 12 2 17 Group 4 7 0 20

What I am trying to calculate in my custom total column is the percentage of values that are in Category 3 for each group. In theory I want my matrix to look like this:

 Category 1 Category 2 Category 3 % of Values that are in Category 3 Group 1 0 5 12 70.588% Group 2 5 9 15 51.724% Group 3 12 2 17 54.839% Group 4 7 0 20 74.074%

I tried to create a measure that calculates this and it currently looks like this:

VAR _numTotal = CALCULATE(
COUNT([Value]),
FILTER('Table', [Group] = [Group]))

VAR _numCategory3 = CALCULATE(
COUNT([Value]),
FILTER('Table', [Categories] = "Category 3"),
FILTER('Table', [Group] = [Group]))

RETURN CALCULATE(
DIVIDE(_numCategory3, _numTotal),
FILTER('Table', [Group] = [Group]))

Any help on this is greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!  Community Support

Hi @NJ81858 ,

According to your description, here are my steps you can follow as a solution.

(1) We can create a measure or calculated column.

``````Measure =
var _a=CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]),FILTER(ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Group]),'Table'[Value]))
var _b=CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Category]="Category 3"))
var _c=DIVIDE(_b,_a,0)
return _c``````
``````Column = var _a = IF('Table'[Category]="Category 3",'Table'[value])

var _b = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Group]=EARLIER('Table'[Group])))

return DIVIDE(_a,_b,0)``````

(2) Then the result is as follows. Best Regards,
