Create bins and use bin in bar chart

I have created a calculated column:
Category Sales Bin = (IF(Orders[Sale%]>0 && Orders[Sale%]<=0.06, "0% - 6%",
IF(Orders[Sale%]>0.06 && Orders[Sale%]<=0.14,"7% - 14%",
IF(Orders[Sale%]>0.14 && Orders[Sale%]<=0.21,"14% - 21%",
IF(Orders[Sale%]>0.21,"> 21%" )))))

sale% is also a calcualted column which is calculating percentage and is in decimal format.
Now Category Sales Bin is showing "0% - 6%" for all the values
For 13.01 or 12.68 it is showing "0% - 6%".

Why it is showing for all same value .

also i want to use this bin in bar chart and study sale% distribution bin wise

2 ACCEPTED SOLUTIONS

Looking at the pbix, I think you already know the answer.  The Sales% in the table visual is an aggregation of the numeric column but the Category Sales Bin 3 is a text field which is not going to aggregate.

Sales% summed actually does make sense in the data but we have to be very careful adding up percentages normally.

 

One solution is to create SUM(sales%) as a measure and create the bucket calculation as a measure which refers to it.  I think you would have to use a variable to store the SUM(sales%) and then use that variable in the rest of the measure.  Don't overcomplicate it.

 

You will need Product SubCategory in the visual to provide the correct context 

 

Good luck.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

The cause is just like what @HotChilli said.

Please create a Measure like so:

Category Sales Bin =
VAR Sum_Sales =
    SUM ( Orders[Sale%] )
RETURN
     (
        IF (
            Sum_Sales > 0
                && Sum_Sales <= 0.06,
            "0% - 6%",
            IF (
                Sum_Sales > 0.06
                    && Sum_Sales <= 0.14,
                "7% - 14%",
                IF (
                    Sum_Sales > 0.14
                        && Sum_Sales <= 0.21,
                    "14% - 21%",
                    IF ( Sum_Sales > 0.21, "> 21%" )
                )
            )
        )
    )
