Divide based on first row

How would I go about creating a measure that divides each row's value by the very first row based on order numbers? 

 

My data looks like this:

 

GameOrderUsersCompletion %
A0100 
B39090.00%
C68080.00%
D97070.00%
E125050.00%
F152525.00%

 

What I'm trying to get is the completion % in my table. In Excel, you would just have divide all user values from games B-F by A's user value to get the completion %. However, I'm strugging to figure out how to do so in Power BI. 

 

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi @Anonymous

 

 How do  you decide the firts row? Game "A" is the first row always?

 

If thats the case,

 

Completion = SUM(Table[Users] )/ CALCULATE ( SUM(Table[Users]), Filter ( Table, Table[Game]=  "A")

 

OR

 

Completion = DIVIDE( SUM(Table[Users] ),

                                    CALCULATE ( SUM(Table[Users]), Filter ( Table, Table[Game]=  "A")

                                    )

 

Thanks

Hi @rajendran,

 

Thanks for the assistance. When I tried your measure I was getting the same percentage across all of the rows. I had a brain fart and realized that the data table I presented in the original post was a summarized table visual and not the actual backend data.

 

How the backend table looks like:

 

DateGameOrderUsers
1/1/2018A0100
1/1/2018B390
1/1/2018C650
1/2/2018A0100
1/2/2018B390
1/2/2018C650
1/3/2018A0100
1/3/2018B390
1/3/2018C650

 

And here is the result I would like based on the backend in a table visual:

 

GameOrderUsersCompletion %
A0300 
B327090.00%
C615050.00%

 

What I'm trying to achieve is getting the sum of users for all the games and then dividing those totals based on Game A, which has order 0. Order 0 will always be the first row. 

 

Apologies for my lack of clarity.

@Ashish_Mathur

 

This works! 

 

However, I just realized that the same same order numbers appear for two different categories. Using the solution in this instance no longer works. 

 

For example I have the below:

 

DateGameOrderUsersCategory
1/1/2018A0100Red
1/1/2018B390Blue
1/1/2018C650Blue
1/2/2018A0100Blue
1/2/2018B390Red
1/2/2018C650Red
1/3/2018A0100Blue
1/3/2018B390Red
1/3/2018C650Blue

 

I attempted to have the CUSTOMER MIN ORDER be calculated based on the category filter selected by the user, but it's throwing out an error in the visual:

 

Customers at min order = CALCULATE([Number of users],FILTER(ALL(Data[Game]),Data[Game]=LOOKUPVALUE(Data[Game],Data[Order],CALCULATE([Min order],ALL(Data[Game]), FILTER(Data, SELECTEDVALUE(Data[Category])))))
I should've made my original posts more clear. Thanks for any assistance.

Disregard my post above. I simply created a new column that differentiated the order numbers between the categories. Your solution now works. 

 

Thank you so much for the help! 

You are welcome.
