DAX CALCULATION % OF SALES

Hi guys, 

 

I do not get this to work.

 

I have created a hiearchy where the top level shows SALES, COGS,  PERSONNEL COSTS, OTHER EXTERNAL COSTS.

 

If you drill down, you can see all the accountnumbers tied to these classificaitons.

 

I am trying to create a DAX calculation which shows the % of Sales.

 

"% of Sales = SUM(Table1[Sales]) / CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Sales]); Table1[Type] = "SALES")"

 

However, this works when looking at the top level, but when drilling down it no longer works.

 

Any ideas?? Smiley Happy

Re: DAX CALCULATION % OF SALES

Putting the SUM in the values area, and "Show as percent of" grand total works. But I want to "show percent of" Sales which is the top row called "1. Intäkter".

 

So I put SUM in the values field and then I choose "show percent"  of  "1. Intäkter" a.k.a Sales.

 

This works until you want to drill down in the pivot table :/

Thanks for trying to help!

Re: DAX CALCULATION % OF SALES

I would try just a simple SUM and then in the values area click the drop down on the field and choose "Show as" | "Percent of grand total". Otherwise, I would try:

 

% of Sales = SUM(Table1[Sales]) / CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Sales]); ALLEXCEPT(Table1,[Type]))
