Matrix sum of values not correct

I have a calculated table that calculates the amount of time the expiry date changes per SKU.

 

<DistinctMDDCrtExpiryDates =
SUMMARIZECOLUMNS('Data'[Data.SKU],"Change in Expiry Date",
CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Data'[Data.Expiration Date]),'Data'[Expiration Date]<>BLANK()))>
 
The issue I'm experiencing is when I create a matrix it shows the total number of changes across the board for each SKU rather than the total number of changes per SKU.
e.g. Below we should not be seeing 744 (this is the total number of changes), what we should be seeing is the 744 should be split out amoung the 4 SKUs.

Some of the matrix is blocked out for confidentiality purposes.

 

Thanks

Hi @obriaincian ,

 

According to your statement, I know that you have a hierachy level in your matrix visual. Is [...Segment] column in "Data" Table? I think you don't need to create a calculated table to aggregate value. Try to use virtual table in measure.

My Sample:

Measure:

Measure = 
VAR _SUMMARIZE = 
SUMMARIZE (
    Data,
    Data[Segment],
    'Data'[Data.SKU],
    "Change in Expiry Date",
        CALCULATE (
            DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Data'[Data.Expiration Date] ),
            'Data'[Expiration Date] <> BLANK ()
        )
)
RETURN
SUMX(_SUMMARIZE,[Change in Expiry Date])

Result is as below.

@obriaincian , if you created a table and displaying it, with some other tables. This new table should be joined with those tables. I doubt that here.

 

If this does not help
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format?

Hi @amitchandak ,

Thank you for your response, I can't merge the created table back to the original table as I have grouped SKUs in the table I created, can you please suggest how I might go about this?
