Re: Calculate discount

Just start with creating a measure:

Discounted Value = SUM(Column[Value]) * 0,75

Re: Calculate discount

I think you have a math error @rehman1 . 

 

25% of 125 is 31.25. so a 25% discount would give you a total of 93.75.

Re: Calculate discount

That is correct, 25% of 125 is 30, so the result should be 95.
