## % Calculations using % not resulting expected values

Hi

We are trying to replicate a solution that was built using Cognos in Azure/Power BI.

We have loaded all the required tables and created a data model with in Powe BI and we are using Driect Query.

We need to derive a calculation which is combinition of 4 formulas, they are used repertietly with in the final formula.

Following is the formula:

((100*(1-[Green Cull % (of cast)])*( 1-[1-F Pcs Cull % (of Inspect)]-Inspection[%1F Rework]))+
(100*(1-[Green Cull % (of cast)])*Inspection[%1F Rework]*(1-[1-F Pcs Cull % (of Inspect)]-Inspection[%1F Rework]))+
(100*(1-[Green Cull % (of cast)])*Inspection[%1F Rework]*[2-F Rework % (of 2-F Inspect)]*(1-[1-F Pcs Cull % (of Inspect)]-Inspection[%1F Rework]))+
(100*(1-[Green Cull % (of cast)])*Inspection[%1F Rework] * POWER([2-F Rework % (of 2-F Inspect)],2)*(1-[1-F Pcs Cull % (of Inspect)]-Inspection[%1F Rework]))+
(100*(1-[Green Cull % (of cast)])*Inspection[%1F Rework] * POWER([2-F Rework % (of 2-F Inspect)],3)*(1-[1-F Pcs Cull % (of Inspect)]-Inspection[%1F Rework]))+
(100*(1-[Green Cull % (of cast)])*Inspection[%1F Rework] * POWER([2-F Rework % (of 2-F Inspect)],4)*(1-[1-F Pcs Cull % (of Inspect)]-Inspection[%1F Rework])))/100

All the components of the formul give the correct results but when I combine the calcualtions in the above formula I get a huge number insted of %

Please let me know what I am missing here.

Regards

Raju

@Eric

The issues is now resolved, the % were done with in the calculaton its self , So I have changed the formula and used the "formatting" to represnt the % insted of calculating in the formaula.

@raju4234

Your problem is vague, where did you apply the fomular, and how do you verify that the components work in Power BI desktop?

Please be more specific on the scenario, better to represent the problem by giving some sample data and a demo.
