## Adding a Total Column to a Matrix Visual that only sums spcific columns

I have a table that has (simplified) the columns CustID, Action, Date

I then have a matrix visual that has Action as Columns, CustID AS Rows and Count(Action) as Values.

Now I need an extra column that sums only some of the Columns, not all like the Total. In Excel this is =SUMME(B11:K11), where K12 and K13 are the columns not to be summed.

Is this possible in PBI Matrix?

@DevOn99 Please post the sample data (copiable format) and expected output to understand your scenario in detail. It will be helpful to provide an accurate solution.

This is the simplified data structure:

This is the table:

 Date CustId Action 01.01.2018 1 A 02.01.2018 1 B 03.01.2018 1 A 04.01.2018 1 C 05.01.2018 2 A 06.01.2018 2 A 07.01.2018 2 C 08.01.2018 2 C 09.01.2018 2 C 10.01.2018 2 D

Expected outcome (I did this as a Matrix in PBI, but cannot see a way to add the Sum(A,B) column):

 PIVOT Values are Count(Action) Action CustId A B C D Sum (A,B) 1 2 1 1 0 3 2 2 3 0 1 5

Hi

You you create measures using DAX formula like pattern below:

```A = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Action]), FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Table1, Table1[CustId]), Table1[Action] = "A"))

B = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Action]), FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Table1, Table1[CustId]), Table1[Action] = "B"))

C = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Action]), FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Table1, Table1[CustId]), Table1[Action] = "C"))

D = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Action]), FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Table1, Table1[CustId]), Table1[Action] = "D"))

Sum(A, B) = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Action]), FILTER(ALLEXCEPT(Table1, Table1[CustId]), Table1[Action] = "A" || Table1[Action] = "B"))
```

This result is like this:

The problem is, that the visual is a matrix and

## Re: Adding a Total Column to a Matrix Visual that only sums spcific columns

you made a table visual. I need a matrix visual that has Action in columns and Custid and Date (in real solution, there are more criteria like country, gender etc) in rows. rows are drillable.

So, if I have a matrix that filters on rows AND columns, I guess it is not possible to have extra colums for measures that only filter on row criteria, but is independant from column criteria. Or is there a solution?

My solution now is:

I added an extra column in Query Editor that is always 1. Then pivoted the column Action (using the always 1 column as value) and use the new columns (one for each distinct value in Action) in data section. Leave column section empty. Then I can add measures to the data section and they get also new columns.

Hi

I'm afraid the matrix in your post couldn't be realized because the SUM(A,B) is not a value in Action column, as a workaround, you can drag measure sum(A,B) above the value field lile below:
