Don't summarize values in matrix visual

Hi,
I have a column of percentages and can view them properly in a table, but when i turn the table to a matrix, it sums it up and there is no "don't summerize" option. I also changed the default summarization to 'don't summarize' but it still doesn't work. Is there anything i could do about this?

Re: Don't summarize values in matrix visual

As a general rule I don't store percentages in columns as they are typically non-additive. Instead I store the raw values that are used to calculate the percentage, then I create a measure to calculate the percentage. In this way the percentage can be calculated correctly regards of any grouping or filtering that is applied.

Re: Don't summarize values in matrix visual

Hi @teckchan 

When adding columns in the "value" of a matrix, it would summarize as "sum" by default.

the values for the column would sum grouped by the column in "row".

 

Please see my example, if i add the same column in the "row" as table,

it shows correctly in a matrix.

If there are many columns in "row" field, please expand all levels to see the correct values.

 

 

Best Regards
Maggie
