Matrix not totaling correctly on the column total

I have a matrix and the measure that i have in place is not totaling correctly on the grand total. I have seen a few other questions similar to this but i dont fully understand how to fix this. 

 

For the highlighted totals, i would expect them to be 8 and 4, not 4 and 5.

 

Any ideas?

 

The measure is:

 

Events = IF(MONTH(MAX(FTE_Table[Posted Dt.]))=12,[Ranking],0)

Re: Matrix not totaling correctly on the column total

Hi @analyst312 ,

 

Try this:

1. Create a new column.

Month = MONTH(FTE_Table[Posted Dt.])

2. Create a measure.

Events =
IF (
    HASONEFILTER ( FTE_Table[Posted Dt.].[Month] ),
    IF ( MAX ( FTE_Table[Month] ) = 12, [Ranking], 0 ),
    CALCULATE ( [Ranking], FTE_Table[Month] = 12 )
)

Re: Matrix not totaling correctly on the column total

calculate(IF(MONTH(MAX(FTE_Table[Posted Dt.]))=12,[Ranking],0),values(FTE_Table[Posted Month])).

 

You need to have context. Please refer to my blog on date diff, how to context in measure calculation:https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Decoding-Direct-Query-in-Power-BI-Part-2-Date-Differ...
