Hi @sdhn ,

you can do it like this:

``````Sum of Profit = SUM('Table'[Profit])

Percentage = DIVIDE([Sum of Profit],CALCULATE([Sum of Profit], ALL('Table')))``````

Table real name is MailPackage and Column name is MAIL COUNT instaed of Profit.

I am getting following message.

I right clicked on Table and choose New Column and insert following code:

The syntax for 'sum' is incorrect. (DAX(DIVIDE(MailPackage[MAIL COUNT]sum(MailPackage[MAIL COUNT])))).

Your help will appreciaed again.  Thanks

I added "," before sum and its work BUT

I have a total of mail count (Profit in above example)  in the last row.

It is 280 in above example.

I want to get result of percentage as mail counts/total mail counts * 100 for each row in the newly percentage column as below:

60/280*100

80/280*100

40/280*100

90/280*100

10/280*100

Thanks

Try Column = DIVIDE( MailPackage[MAIL COUNT], SUM(MailPackage[MAIL COUNT] )

No DAX required.
