Table Total On Certain Columns Not Summing up correctly

I have a measure Languages Board = IF([Short Languages]<>0,1,0) on a table visualization but the grand total is not showing correct. I am expecting it to Total it just like the other columns not 1, see screen shot.

Hi @MA14 

Mesaure is different from calculated column. When it is added to visual, the fields in Values have no aggregate calculation. So it returns a different value than regular column and calculated column. If you need its last value to be total, I suggest you can create calculated column.

In this case , you can created a calculated column like this :

Column = SWITCH(TRUE(),'Table'[Short Languages]<>0,1,0)

The final result is as shown :

I have attached my pbix file , you can refer to it .

Hi @MA14 

 

That's a total issue because you used IF statement in your formula, it's very common.
