Commission Report

Hello,

 

I am trying to build a commission report in Power BI. In my Excel report right now, I am using a SUMIF formula to calculate the Gross Sales based on the Margin % earned on the sale. So for example:

 

If margin earned is between 0% and 20%:

=SUMIFS(TotalPriceOfSale, Margin%>=0, Margin %<=20)


The Gross Sales is then multiplied by a set Commission % to calculate the amount of commission earned in dollar value.

 

Any suggestions as to how to calculate the Gross Sales? And how to avoid circular depenency when trying to calculate the commission?

 

Thank you,

Jessica

Re: Commission Report

Hi @jlam

It'd be easier of you showed a sample of your data model. 

I think you could use a measure:

 

Measure =
YourSetCommissionPercentage * 
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( Table1[TotalPriceOfSale] ),
        Table1[Margin%] >= 0,
        Table1[Margin%] <= 20
    )

Re: Commission Report

Hello,

 

I am trying to replicate the following into Power BI.

If I use your suggested measure to calculate each Margin Range, would I create a column to calculate the Part Sales using an IF formula?

 

Thank you,

Jessica
