Decomposition Tree - Date Hierarchy where sum of percentages of any given level =100%


I have a dataset of 5 years' worth of daily recordings. Each record is simple and has 3 columns:

  • Date
  • Order Number
  • Order type

(Some orders can have two different types. They simply have multiple records, one for each order type). 


I need to count the order types and show percentages based on hierarchies and show it on a single decomposition tree so that the user can decide how they wish to look at the data. I am interested in every possible combination using the Total, Year, Quarter, and Order Type:


  • Number of orders for each year as a percentage of all statuses recorded
  • Number of orders for each quarter as a percentage of its year
  • Number of orders for each quarter as a percentage of all statuses 
  • Number of orders for each status type as a percentage of the quarter
  • Number of orders for each status type as a percentage of the year
  • Number of orders for each status type as a percentage of all statuses recorded

And I want to be able to fully expand the tree to 4 levels in any particular order (Total-Year-Quarter-Order Type) or only choose 3 or 2 levels. 


Is this possible using the date hierarchy off of a calendar table and a Count of the status types? 


When I use something like "Percent of TOTAL ORDERS = DISTINCTCOUNT('TABLE1'[Order#])/CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('TABLE1'[Order#]),ALLEXCEPT('Calendar','Calendar'[Date]))

It only give me % of the year. 


I'm stumped.

Hi @jlankford ,


Maybe you can try this measure,


Percent of TOTAL ORDERS =
        DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'TABLE1'[Order#] ),
        FILTER (
            ALLSELECTED ( TABLE1 ),
            TABLE1[Order type] = MAX ( TABLE1[Order type] )


If it doesn’t meet your requirement, could you please provide a mockup sample based on fake data?

It will be helpful if you can show us the exact expected result based on the tables.
