Calculated column for direct query

I have View from direct query ,based on two columns i'm calucating percentage using the below formula


Percentag =
var dr=CALCULATE(sum('ABCR_Consolidated_View'[Final_Count]))
return if(dr=0,blank(),'ABCR_Consolidated_View'[Delta]/dr*100)

but i'm getting the following error

Function 'SUM' is not allowed as part of calculated column DAX expressions on DirectQuery models

 

is there anyway to do it in direct query model.

@Icey thanks for the solution

In my case I'm getting some error so i used the divide function to solve the problem.

Delta1 = DIVIDE ( SUM ( 'ABCR_Consolidated'[Delta]), SUM ('ABCR_Consolidated'[Final_Count] ) )

Quoting:

"Limitations in calculated columns: Calculated columns are limited to being intra-row, as in, they can only refer to values of other columns of the same table, without the use of any aggregate functions. Additionally, the DAX scalar functions, such as LEFT(), that are allowed, are limited to those functions that can be pushed to the underlying source. The functions vary depending upon the exact capabilities of the source. Functions that aren't supported aren't listed in autocomplete when authoring the DAX for a calculated column, and would result in an error if used."

Re: Calculated column for direct query

Hi @sreekar18 ,

 

Try this to create a measure:

Percentag =
VAR dr =
    CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'ABCR_Consolidated_View'[Final_Count] ) )
RETURN
    IF ( dr = 0, BLANK (), MAX ( 'ABCR_Consolidated_View'[Delta] ) / dr * 100 )

 

Please tell me if it works.

 

 

Best Regards,

Icey
