## Grand totals and the context of numbers

I have this equation:

calculate([sCnt],filter(all(Query1[dq]),Query1[dq]=max(Query1[iq])))

That I'm using in a pivot table where the filter context of Query1[iq] doesn't exist because it does not appear in the pivot table, instead, the filter context contains fields that are irrelevant to this equation.  I'm just using it because what I want, on a row by row basis, is to just sum the value when query1[dq] = query1[iq].  Can I just use this function(which I made for a different pivot table) in this table?  Or put another way, what is the context of the Query1[iq] when the filter context is nothing, is it the whole table?

I suspect it may be the latter.  If it is, do I need to do a sumx to sum all rows where Query1[iq] = Query1[dq]?  It's awfully tempting to just do sum(if(query1[iq]=query1[dq],amt,0)) like we would in sql or excel before sumif functions, but again, this is not a normal language.

## Re: Grand totals and the context of numbers

It seems good with your formula in some way. The Filter() will iterate a row context. Maybe you need to remove Max(). Then the formula could be like this:

```CALCULATE (
[sCnt],
FILTER ( ALL ( Query1[dq] ), Query1[dq] = Query1[iq] )
)```

All the rows of table "Query1" where [dq] equal [iq] will return if there aren't any other filter context.

Could you please share the pbix file? DAX formula is dynamic and depends on many aspects like contexts, relationship and filters.

## Re: Grand totals and the context of numbers

What is the pbix formula.  I should mention that I'm doing this in excel

## Re: Grand totals and the context of numbers

You still can try it in Excel. What's the problem if you try it in Excel?
