## Grand total measure is 0 for IF forumla with 0 and 1 as results

Hello,

I created a measure using "if" DAX formula and result is "0" or "1". Issue is that even if the result format is considered as a number by Power BI Desktop, the grand total of this measure is not calculated. I requested some help on the forum and to my Company BI IT Service and no one found a solution. This way of working is not very academic but very simple (kind of things we use to do on Excel and works perfectly), and my feeling is that more simple things are, better they are. And I can't go ahead on my report because no workaround.

Can you please fix this ? In the following screenshot relevant measure is "IC Actif 1"

Hi @Anonymous,

You can create a calculated column with:

Column= IF(SUM(Table1[Column2])-SUM(Table1[Column1])<0 || ISBLANK(SUM(Table1[Column2])),0,1)

Then set aggregation with SUM when the column put in the table visual.

Can you try:

`Totals for Actif IC 1 = SUMX('table' [fullname], [Actif IC 1])`

See if that works,

Thanks for your reply, but I can't set the aggregation, the only choices I have are "no calculation" or "% of grand total". I maybe did not precize that "nbre Opp" and "Obj. IC" are measures.

Anyway I change the formula of "Actif IC" to that one (to avoid measure usage) :  Actif IC 1 = IF(DISTINCTCOUNT(FaitsOppC[OpportunityId])-SUM('Objectifs IC'[Objectif])<0 || DISTINCTCOUNT(FaitsOppC[OpportunityId])<1;0;1)

I still can't aggregate.

Hello @PaulDBrown,

The column total is calculated but incorrect. On the whole tab grand total result is 10 instead 1 163.

Maybe because there 12 lines with different results for a single fullname value. See example on screenshot, where you can see that total is 0 when using SUMX on "DumUser" table (where we can find "fullname").

With SUMX on "DumDate" table (where we can find "fullname"), the meaure is directly incorrect (see screenshot)

Hi, Try using thess Functions:

HASONEVALUE, SUMX and SUMMARIZE.

Can't show you the exact solution because don't know if Month, Activite IC and FullName coming from same or different tables and the relatioship between this.

If you can post a Dummy PBIX the solution will be more precisely.
