Newbie DAX question

Hello.

 

I never used DAX and could not find a proper solution a surely easy question.

 

I have a measure with the total sales. In a table I also have a column with the sales of each shop. I need to discard some shops, but we have to compare with the total. If I filter some shops, the total chances, but I need to use the total even of the discarted shops.

 

So, how can I configure a column with the formule "previous column / Totals measure"?

 

Thanks

Hi @Shaglok 
You need to do simething like 
Totals measure =

CALCULATE ( [Sales], ALL ( TablrName[Shop] ) )

Ofcourse it depends on the filter contectx of the table visual i.e. what other columns involved in the table.

@Shaglok Use ALL. You will likely need to have a slightly different calculation for your total line. This Quick Measure, Measure Totals, The Final Word should get you what you need:

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...
