Dax help - measure to show % of passed items by category

I have a clustered stacked chart in excel I use to trend test improvements over the last few months.  For example, the % of question 1 being passed will show for april, may and june.  Then the same for question 2 and so on.

PBI doesn't support that but it looks like their stacked % chart will get me close.  Problem is, % is for all of the questions and not just for one category at a time

Below is how my columns look in PBI and I would like the stacked % bar chart to show that question 1 is 75% as that is the percentage of the question being passed.  The next section of the bar would be for question 2 and that would show 50%.  Then I can have a 1 column for each month and I can compare improvements that way.

This possible?

Re: Dax help - measure to show % of passed items by category

That is caused by the fact that if either argument to the divide function returns a blank, the result of the divide will be blank. One fix for ths is to check if the count of all scores is greater than 0 then add a hard 0 to the count of passed scores.

eg

```Pass % =
VAR _allScoresCnt = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table1),ALL(Table1[Score]))
VAR _passCnt = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table1), Table1[Score] = "Pass") + IF(_allScoresCnt > 0,0)
return DIVIDE(_passCnt, _allScoresCnt)```

Re: Dax help - measure to show % of passed items by category

You should be able to do this with a measure like the following

```Pass % =
VAR _passCnt = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table1), Table1[Score] = "Pass")
VAR _allScoresCnt = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table1),ALL(Table1[Score]))
return DIVIDE(_passCnt, _allScoresCnt)```

Then simply create a normal stacked column chart and put this measure on the values and the questions on the Axis

I don't really understand what you are trying to achieve. If you can post an image of the output maybe the same chart exists in Power BI but just has a different name.

This is close but on one of my questions, I don't have any that have passed. Instead of showing 0%, the question is not even showing at all

That worked, thank you.

Do you know if any resources that would good to start learning DAX?

My friends over at sqlbi.com have a stack of great resources. They wrote a book called "The Definitive Guide to DAX" and the also have videos and run training courses and have a number of articles on their site. And there is a list of a number of great DAX resources here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1088.dax-resource-center.aspx
