Divide elements of a column by the sum of another column while keeping filters on

Hi all,

 

I'm new to PoweBI and I'm looking for a way to divide the elements of a column by the total of another column while keeping filters on.

 

So for example:

A

B

date

12

87

9.16

16

32

9.16

56

35

9.17

 

What I want is the elements of A in date 9.16 divide by the sum of B in date 9.16, so:

A/B

date

12/(87+32)

9.16

16/(87+32)

9.16

 

I tried doing this in PowerBI

 

% AB= DIVIDE(SUM(table[A]),SUM(table[B]))

 

But it would give me

A/B

12/87

16/32

Which is not desired.

 

Futhermore I need to keep the date filter in, so I don't think ALL() would be approporiate.

 

Any kind of help would be highly appreciated!

Hi @ningty09 ,

 I created a measure to plement it with the function of ALLSELECTED.  The table still can be filtered by date.

Divide = DIVIDE(SUM('Table'[A]),CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[B]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),'Table'[date] = MAX('Table'[date]))))

Hi, thanks for your reply.  However, I'm trying to use the measure in different visuals and there will be different filter based on each individual visual so I don't think this solution applies.
