Calculate a number within a tile

Hi

 

I am new to Power BI so apologies if this is a simple question. I have a tile that is used to show items sold, this number comes direct from a table with multiple columns. Some sales are then voided and I want to subtract these numbers from the sales number. The table has a field that shows different statuses such as sold, void, unconfirmed etc.

 

In the tile I apply a date filter and I can also filter on the status column, in the filter I can see the number of sold items and the number of void items. How can I subtract the void items from the sales items, I am assuming this is a measure but not sure how to write this.

 

Many thanks in advance

@paulsmith here is what you can do, add following meaureS:

 

Sum Quantity = SUM ( Table[Quantity] )

Sum Sold = CALCULATE ( [Sum Quantity], Table[Status] = "Sold" )

Sum Void = CALCULATE ( [Sum Quantity], Table[Status] = "Void" )

Sold - Void = [Sum Sold] - [Sum Void] 

 

You can do above in one measure as well but I prefer separate measure so that it is easy to make changes.
