Converting Tableau Fixed LOD to Power BI



I am struggling to convert a series of Tableau Fixed LOD's in my Power BI report. I have read just about every post on this matter that is currently on the discussion board and have not been able to figure out an answer. If I can figure at least this one out, I think I can figure out the rest. 


The Tableau LOD reads as follows: 

Projected Over Under = { FIXED [Project Name],[accountcode],[projectedoverunder]: AVG([projectedoverunder])}


I've tried the following, which you'll see in the table below:

1) Creating a calculated column using the following formula: 

Projected Budget Over/Under = CALCULATE(AVERAGE(Query1[projectedoverunder]), ALLEXCEPT(Query1, Query1[name], Query1[accountcode], Query1[projectedoverunder])). This simply provides the same value as the original field, "projectedoverunder" (also included in the table for reference.) **I've tried this same formula but using ALLEXCEPT for each field -- name, account code, and projected over under and get the exact same resutls**
2) Taken a similar approach using measures. I created the following: 
Projected Budget Over/Under 3 = CALCULATE(([Projected Budget Over/Under2]), ALLEXCEPT(Query1, Query1[name]), ALLEXCEPT(Query1, Query1[accountcode]), ALLEXCEPT(Query1, Query1[projectedoverunder])). This gives me the same value across the table. 
Projected Budget Over/Under 2 measure, referenced above, is: 
Projected Budget Over/Under2 = AVERAGE(Query1[projectedoverunder])
I cannot seem to get the correct results to display. Any help would be MUCH appreciated. 
What the results should be *note that some are correct; others are not. I'm guessing that the ones that are incorrect have to do with the way that average is occuring based on the other fields*
FacilityProjected Budget Over/Under
Facility 1-52
Facility 2-450,000
Facility 3-874, 373
Facility 4-1,500,000
Facility 5-1,608,053
How the results display:
FacilityProjected Budget Over/Under 3Projected Budget Over/Underprojectedoverunder *original field from dataset*
Facility 1-125,577.19-412-412
Facility 2-125,577.19-450,000-450,000
Facility 3-125,577.19-5,186,480-5,186,480
Facility 4-125,577.19-1,500,000-1,500,000
Facility 5-125,577.19-55,850,173-55,850,173

 Thank you in advance!!
