DAX Formula

Hello All,

 

I'm currently trying to recreate a formula in Power BI that is being used in Excel for a report. On the image below I've place an M above the columns of my table that represent Measures I created. Sales Amount is a column that has a Default Summarization of Sum. I need a formula that looks like this:

 

(total of Prev Period Gross Margin $, subtract Prev Period Gross Margin $, add Gross Margin $)

 divide--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(total of Prev Period Sales Amount, subtract Prev Period Sales Amount, add Sales Amount)

 

(275,446 - 4915 + 300) / (1,138,962 - 50,060 + 2,409) -----> 270,831 / 1,061,311 ------> .24817 ------> 24.82%

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

 

Thanks,

Re: DAX Formula

@nleuck,

 

Create a measure and try DAX formula like pattern below:

 

Measure =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table[Prev Period Gross Margin] ), ALL ( Table ) )
    - MAX ( Table[Prev Period Gross Margin] )
    + MAX ( Table[Gross Margin] )
        / CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table[Prev Period Sales Amount] ), ALL ( Table ) )
    - MAX ( Table[Prev Period Sales Amount] )
    + MAX ( Table[Sales Amount] )

You can't SUM on measure. Thanks though.

Could you share the original table for further test?

There wasn't a correct answer. It looks like what I'm trying to do can not be done in Power BI.
