Division

Hello,
I am trying to enter a new measure where I want to calculate a monthly usage based on a total annual number.
The column is called "Units Sold Sum" which I want to divide by 12.

The Units sold sum is already grouped and there are filter on the page.

 

Measure = ([Units Sold Sum]/12)
The error I get is that Power Bi cannot fine name Units Sold Sum

@bassplayer-nld , In measure you have use sum

 

Measure = Sum([Units Sold Sum])/12

 

I have written this for target, but that may work in your case

Hi @bassplayer-nld ,

 

In measure, you need to use a summarisation on column name like SUM, MAX, etc.

You can also try using DIVIDE function.

Measure = DIVIDE(SUM([Units Sold Sum]), 12, 0)

 

Thanks,

Pragati





If this helps, Appreciate a KUDOS!
