# How calculate for a total in a measure

Hello community,

I need your help for this situation. I have a table where I need to calculate with a measure the distribution of a total like this:

 Hours Cost Amount Distribute CLIENT 1 5,25 417,50 1.118,90 AREA1 1,50 105,00 701,90 AREA 2 1,25 62,50 - AREA 3 2,50 250,00 417,00 Total 5,25 417,50 1.118,90

The measure have had this formula: Distribute = (Cost * TotalAmount) / TotalCost, for exemeple, in the AREA 1 row, the result would be: (105 * 1,118,90) / 417,50 = 281,40.

I tried this formula:

Distribute =

Var

TotalAMOUNT = CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Amount]);ALLSELECTED(Client[Client]))

TotalCOST = CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Cost]);ALLSELECTED(Client[Client]))

RETURN

(Table[Cost] * TotalAMOUNT) / TotalCOST

What is the measure formula?

Thank you.

Hi Raul,

This should to the trick:

client total cost = calculate(sum(Table1[cost]), ALL(Table1[area]))

client total amount = calculate(sum(Table1[amount]), ALL(Table1[area]))

distribute = (sum([cost])/[client total cost]) * [client total amount]

Hello @waltheed,

Thanks for your answer but in my case it is not correct. The Area column is in another table (Table2) related to Table1. When I apply your formula, the result it gives me is this:

 Cost Client Total Cost Client 1 417,50 417,50 Area 1 105,00 105,00 Area 2 62,50 62,50 Area 3 250,00 250,00 Total 417,50 417,50

Client Total Cost = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Cost]);ALL(Table2[Area]))

And the same with Client Total Amount. What was wrong?

Thank you.

Hi @Raul,

If it is convenient, could you share a dummy pbix file which can reproduce the scenario and your expected output, so that we can help further investigate on it? You can upload it to OneDrive or Dropbox and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.)

Best Regards,

Cherry

Hello @waltheed,

I found the solution with your help. Only change the table in the ALLSELECTED function and I have the correct result.
