Line and Clustered Column Chart with Target Percentages

Using DirectQuery, I have Plant 1 thru Plant 3 audit compliance data for which I want to show Target Pcts using the Lines on the chart.  For Plant 1 thru Plant 3, I have a SharePoint list with the Plant, a Good Percent, and a Needs Improvement Percent.


I'm having two issues:

1. I'm getting wavy target lines, I'm sure, due to the differing counts of the Sections/Questions when using Average or Minimum.  I'd like to see a target for all Questions/Sections to be the Average of the Plants selected.  So, if Plant 1 and Plant 3 are selected, the target line would show a Good average for all columns of 57.5%.  If only Plant 1 were selected(sliced), we'd see 55% across all columns.  What piece of DAX code would get me in that direction?


2. The resulting Target Lines are hovering about 15% to 20% higher than where they should be on the Y-Axis.  No idea why.


Any suggestions you can give would be most appreciated.


Here is a spreadsheet w/ the data/calculations




Compliance Pct = DIVIDE([Pass],[Pass]+[Fail],0)
Pass = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(fact_audit_question),dim_audit_form_question_score[Score] = 1)
Fail = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(fact_audit_question),ABS(dim_audit_form_question_score[Score] <> 1))

The Good / Improvement data is accessed via an SSAS Tabular Model.  Linked together on Plant Code.


Does that answer your question?

Hi  @bbollmann  ,


Excuse me, what is the data logic of the dim_target_percent table? How are Good and Improve obtained?


For reports using DirectQuery, there are some restrictions on the use of the Dax function. For related content, please see this link:
