DAX - sum the measure values in total and Not the calculated values at totals

Hi Community,

Power Bi Sample file

I need help with this measure. I got a dataset, with Items sold(ItemID), with quantity(quantity) sold for each item.

we also got a weightage(product weightage) of each itemID.

I am trying to calculate a mix indicator for all these itemIDs based upon the QTY sold and the weightage for each item.

I am calculating the values based on following formula

mix indicator calculted = 
VAR item_sum =
   SUM ( 'dump data test01'[Quantity] )
VAR total_sum =
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ('dump data test01'[Quantity]  ),
        ALL ( 'dump data test01'[ItemID] )
    )
var result = 
     DIVIDE ( item_sum, total_sum )*SUM('dump data test01'[product weightage])

RETURN
result

This gives me a value, which is working fine on row level. Though on the totals line, it is again calculating the mix. I on the other hand, want the total to show the sum of mix for all values, which in this example should be around 15% and not 2923%.

Report attached here with sample data and formula.

Any direction in this regard would be a great help.

Regards

emudria

Hi @emudria 

 

You can add a new measure:

Measure 2 = SUMX(VALUES('dump data test01'[ItemID]),[mix indicator calculted])

@v-diye-msft 

THANK YOU so much Dina. works perfectly. I had spent so many hours trying to do that. Thanks again.

Can I please ask two things:

1 - what is happening in this formula

2 - why doesnt it work if instead of creating a new measure, I put the returned variable 'result' in this formula in same measure

ie 

measure = 

SUMX(VALUES('dump data test01'[ItemID]),result)

Re: DAX - sum the measure values in total and Not the calculated values at totals

what if I have another field along with item such as "X", will this formula still work?
