Difference between columns on two measures

I know that this is what I think is entry level.... I'm sure I learned it in the training course I took but just can't seem to muscle through it and everyone here is always so helpful!


I have a few tables in my data:

1) sharepoint odata link to a list with all of our project work including a choice column for "Teams"

2) Team Name table used as a connector between the other tables

3) Capacity table with team name and their capacity by quarter

4) date table used to cross reference dates accross the tables


I have a bar chart that has the capacity by team for quarter 1, clustered with the total of projects with a status "in progress" by team - filtered by quarter 1 (pic below)


I want to figure out how to create a table or matrix to numerically say the difference between capacity and work in progress - i.e. a specific team is 4 over utilized or 4 under utilized.

Re: Difference between columns on two measures

It looks like you're using Count() to sum the number of ID's, I would guess maybe for case issues between areas for example.


You could try creating a measure which SUM()'s the [id] column and then a Capacity-SummedID measure.
