Calculate profit for multiple projects

hi,

I'm new powerbi. Can you please help me with DAX formula to calculate project profit.

I have two tables. One table has many costs associated with one project and the other table has the revenue for the same project.  I want to calculate the profit (Revenue-Cost=Profit). 

Given:

Table1: project number, project revenue

Table2: Project number, labour cost, material cost, subcontractor cost

 

If i use Profit MEASURE = SUM ( Table1[Revenue] ) - SUM ( Table2[Cost] ) for some reason it dumps all costs and all revenues in one total and calculate difference between those two amounts.

 

thank you everyone for your help

Hi @learnpowerbi19 ,

Firstly, I'm a little confused about your requirement.


Given:

Table1: project number, project revenue

Table2: Project number, labour cost, material cost, subcontractor cost

 

If i use Profit MEASURE = SUM ( Table1[Revenue] ) - SUM ( Table2[Cost] ) for some reason it dumps all costs and all revenues in one total and calculate difference between those two amounts.


It seems that you have three kinds of cost in table2, which one do you want to calculate or the total of the three costs in table 2?

In addition, have created the relationship between the two tables with Project no?

If it is convenient, could you share some data sample which could reproduce your scenario and your desired output so that we could help furthere on it?

Best Regards,

Cherry
