## How to multiply the columns and sum the total

Hi guys,

I am new here and I need a little help.

 ID Multiplier Measure 2 Measure 3 163884 1 163958 2 1 2 163962 2 1 2 164023 2 1 2 164024 1 Total 7 4 28

The DAX code of measure 3 is (Measure 3 = CALCULATE([Measure 2]*[Multiplier]))

But I needed that the measure 3 sum the total and don't multiply, the total should be 6 instead 28.

Do I make myself clear?

Thanks for the help

you need to use SUMX
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/sumx-function-dax
possibly with SUMMARIZE to get sum per ID

This is'nt a pretty solution, but it will work. 🙂

Make an extra column (i have called it "Measure 2,5") before you makre colum "Measure 3"

Use this Dax Expression.

Measure 2,5 = IF(Table1[ID]="Total";0;Table1[Multiplier]*Table1[Measure 2])

This is to get alle the results you need except the total.

Then make the "Measure 3" column with the following Dax Expression.

Measure 3 = IF(Table1[ID]="Total";SUM(Table1[Measure 2,5]);Table1[Measure 2,5])

This should give you the wanted result.

Hope this will help.

Try this formula

`Measure 3 = SUMX( VALUES ( TABLE[ID] ), CALCULATE([Measure 2]*[Multiplier]) )`
