Calculating Percentages

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

 

DeptLocationNo of Ppl
SalesUSA40
SalesDenmark20
SalesSweden40
SalesAustralia30
SalesNorway80
SalesIndia10
SalesChina30

 

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

 

DeptLocationNo of PplTotal PplPercentage
SalesUSA402500.16
SalesDenmark202500.08
SalesSweden402500.16
SalesAustralia302500.12
SalesNorway802500.32
SalesIndia102500.04
SalesChina302500.12

 

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! Smiley Happy

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.

 

DeptLocationNo of PplTotal PplPercentage
SalesUSA402500.16
SalesDenmark202500.08
SalesSweden402500.16
SalesAustralia302500.12
SalesNorway802500.32
SalesIndia102500.04
SalesChina302500.12
HRUSA201370.15
HRDenmark101370.07
HRSweden501370.36

Re: Calculating Percentages

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
