## Re: Help with summing alternative columns

hi  @nanchil

For SUM calculation, you could just drag the field into visual directly,

for Percent measure, you could create this measure as below:

``````Measure Neg Percent Of Total Tested =
DIVIDE (
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Neg] ) ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Total tested] ) )
)``````
``````Measure Pending Percent Of Total Tested =
DIVIDE (
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Pending] ) ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Total tested] ) )
)``````
``````Measure Pos Percent Of Known Results =
DIVIDE (
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Pos] ) ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Pos] ) )+CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Neg]))
)``````
``````Measure Pos Percent of Total Tested =
DIVIDE (
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Pos] ) ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Total tested] ) )
)``````

Result: and here is sample pbix file, please try it.
