## SUMX -> month

Hi all!

Hope you all have a nice weekend so far!

I'm currently struggling with a SUMX measure.

I want to calculate a cost based on the number of hours spent.

-> in January -> 6 of 150 hours = 4% -> total cost is 6.070 so cost for this item is 243

-> in Februry -> 23 of 164,25 hours = 14% -> total cost is 6.070 so cost for this item is 850

=> total for January and Februari is 1.093 and not 1.120

(1.120 = 12.139 x 9,23%)

Current measure: RESULT = SUMX(Emp, [TOTAL] * [HOURS %])

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

well, DAX is calculate the SUM too, and here is your problem, not the result column.
So, try to use matrix and not the table and see how you can change the sum, or switch off the sum and use card for your total result.

Sorry, don't get it.

I'm using a matrix. The 'end result' isn't correct, so using a card do really solve the problem? 😕

Thanks for your answer. But this isn't really working for me.

Here is a sample pbix file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Akj7bUrQd6tMxFD0imuPrUg3lld5?e=lUTWkD

Here you are:

``````RESULT =
VAR __table =
ADDCOLUMNS(
SUMMARIZE(
Emp,
Emp[Month]
),
"@result", CALCULATE(DIVIDE(SUM(Emp[HOURS]), SUM(Emp[HOURS TOTAL])) * SUM(Emp[TOTAL]))
)
RETURN
sumx(__table, [@result])``````
