## Column Multiplication gives 0

Hello I have the below table with the following columns :

Column 1 is hidden as its sensitive but contains brand. The rows highlighted in Yellow are Brand A & un-highlighted rows are Brand B

I tried card sales = value * Qty which worked fine

I have a column Discount value which indicates discount %

I want to multiple Card Sales with Discount which is not working correctly

Im trying to get the following value: Sales = Card Sales- (Card Sales * Discount_Value) which gives me 0.00 Im not sure why. Please help!

The column sales is set to Non Summarized & type Decimal with 4 places

Try create either a column or a measure as below:

``````Column = [value]*[qty]-([value]*[qty]*[Discount_value])

Measure =
var cardsales_= SUM([value])*SUM([qty])
Return cardsales_-cardsales_*SUM([Discount_value])``````

@amitchandak  Thank You!! that worked when I created a new measure with the suggested formula, not as accurate though:

@sam245gonsalves , if they are from same table try like

sumx(Table,[Card Sales]- ([Card Sales] * [Discount_Value]))

Else

Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
