Calculate Percentage Difference Between Table Column Totals

I have a simple table showing values for two different years of data. I want to show the total year to year percentage difference in the last column (YOY % Change) in the total row at the bottom of the table. Here is the table.

In Excel, I would just drop a simple formula in the cell. How do I show the percentage difference between the table column Totals? In effect (JV_tot - JV_tot_17)/JV_tot_17 for the total row?

Thanks for your help. I am obviously new to Power bi.

Re: Calculate Percentage Difference Between Table Column Totals

Hi @ScotsSailor,

I tried re-creating your requirement and it seems to work the way that you are expecting it to work

I have created 2 measures and below are the codes for them

`Measure = SUM(Table1[JV_Tot]) - SUM(Table1[JV_tot_17])`
`Measure 2 = [Measure]/SUM(Table1[JV_tot_17])`

The Below is the screenshot

One possiblity why the percentage not getting displayed in totals is, you have created the YOY Change and YOY% Change as columns and given don't summarize as the aggregation rule for YOY% change

Also keep in might for this creating YOY% Change as column will not give the right values for your total even if they start appearing in totals

Re: Calculate Percentage Difference Between Table Column Totals

It did indeed solve the issue and you guessed it, I was using columns instead of measures. I'm very greateful for your prompt response. I am just beginning to understand Power BI, having spent quite some time with PowerQuery and Pivot tables.

Best regards,
