Calculate % divide by a fixed monthly number

Hi all,

So I have two columns as stated in the picture above, where I have a date and worked hours, the date repeats since you don't usually work 8 hours in one thing only. What I need is to achieve this chart (image below) so for the bars it's okay, I've already calculated billable hours, but now I don't know how to calculate the % based on what should be a month time of work (160 hours w/o holidays) to create the lines.  In excel I would just create a row that "=(A row with the monthly sum of hours)/160"

Chart that I need

User Date Billable Hours

Employee A2018-10-12Yes4
Employee A2018-10-12No3
Employee A2018-10-12No1
Employee A2018-10-13Yes2

The measure is doing this:

Excel: 165/160 = 105%
PBI: 165/160 = 10.4%

The problem is that Power Bi is showing 10.4 instead of 104% and I don't know why.


@chirayuw is it possible to make a filter in that DAX you sent me in the sample for Holiday where instead of 0 it counts as 4?



Hi, Edited the formula in the Calendar Table to say 4 for Sat/Sun/ Holiday. Or do you want Sat + Sun as 0 but Holiday as 4


Also I've almost redone the file because I was trying to fix the issue of not going above 100%


Have a look and let me know if this is what u need
