## Calculating Percentages

So I have this calculated table (I derived the table using a CALCULATE()), that looks like this.

 Dept Location No of Ppl Sales USA 40 Sales Denmark 20 Sales Sweden 40 Sales Australia 30 Sales Norway 80 Sales India 10 Sales China 30

Now, I need 2 additional columns (Cols 4 & 5 in the table below), that will help me calculate the percentage - something like this!

 Dept Location No of Ppl Total Ppl Percentage Sales USA 40 250 0.16 Sales Denmark 20 250 0.08 Sales Sweden 40 250 0.16 Sales Australia 30 250 0.12 Sales Norway 80 250 0.32 Sales India 10 250 0.04 Sales China 30 250 0.12

Can someone help me do that? Also, please note that there are multiple departments in the department column. The Total ppl column should contain values for each department!

Thanks in advance 🙂

Okay if you really want COLUMNS here are those formulas...

```Total People COLUMN = CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[No of Ppl] ), ALLEXCEPT('Table', 'Table'[Dept]) )

Percentage COLUMN = DIVIDE ( 'Table'[No of Ppl], 'Table'[Total People COLUMN], 0 ) ```

But in case you want MEASURES

```Total People MEASURE = CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[No of Ppl] ), ALLEXCEPT('Table', 'Table'[Dept] ) )

Percentage MEASURE = DIVIDE ( SUM('Table'[No of Ppl]), [Total People MEASURE], 0) ```

Hope this helps!

Good Luck!

## Re: Calculating Percentages

Hey Sean,

I'm looking only for Columns. But the SUM() formula to calculate no of people doesn't seem to help if I have more than 1 department.  I'm sending you a sample below.

 Dept Location No of Ppl Total Ppl Percentage Sales USA 40 250 0.16 Sales Denmark 20 250 0.08 Sales Sweden 40 250 0.16 Sales Australia 30 250 0.12 Sales Norway 80 250 0.32 Sales India 10 250 0.04 Sales China 30 250 0.12 HR USA 20 137 0.15 HR Denmark 10 137 0.07 HR Sweden 50 137 0.36 HR Australia 20 137 0.15 HR Norway 25 137 0.18 HR India 10 137 0.07 HR China 2 137 0.01

Hi Shirley,

I have the same issue, as you did. Just with "Used budget" and "Budget", where I want to find the "Percentage used" for each department.

I'tried the formules under Colums as mentioned above, but it doesn't work. Can you show mewhat you wrote in the formula bar to get your percentages?

Regards Jonas
