Re: Calculate Percentage

Hi @ravsha85,

You want to calculte the percentage of each value verse total value? For example, 10/(10+20+10+20+15+5+10+5+5), right? If it it, please create a calculated column using the following formula, and see the result shown in the following screenshot.

Percentage = Test11[Percent]/CALCULATE(SUM(Test11[Percent]),ALL(Test11[Percent]))

Re: Calculate Percentage

In the Modeling tab, you can set a column to %. In your case, you may have to divide by 100.

Re: Calculate Percentage

Thanks Angelia, I have one more requirement though where I have to add (1+2+3+4+5)=15 and I have to dispay it as 15%

I tried to append "%" symbol in the end, but it dosent sums it after that (considering it as a string).

 

Thanks,

Ravi

Re: Calculate Percentage

You should be able to just add an & operator to achieve this.

 

Measure = CALCULATE(
					SUM('Table1'[Column1])
					) & "%"
