Measure for % of Subtotal in Matrix Chart

Hi,

 

Hoping someone can help me here. I'm trying to re-create the excel table below in a PBI Matrix chart. I have the # values, but am having trouble building a % measure that will give me the % of each value compared to the subtotal. 

 

Excel Table I'm trying to reproduce:

What I have in PowerBI so far:

As you can see, the % columns just show 100% for everything. 

 

Anyone have any ideas as to how I can get those perentages to be a % of the subtotal, labeled here as "Total"?

Any help would be greatly appreciated - thank you.

Re: Measure for % of Subtotal in Matrix Chart

I'm going to be honest - I thought because of my own capabilities that this wouldn't work, but it was PERFECT. This is what my formula looks like: 

% Onboarding = DIVIDE(CALCULATE( [# Onboarding]),CALCULATE([# Onboarding],ALLSELECTED('Contract User'[Onboarding_Healthscore_Flag_Color__c])),0)

 

and it worked perfectly. Thanks Sean, much appreciated - you just made my day.

@BKnecht try calculating the total per region using allexcept

 

val = calculate(sum([buyer]), allexcept(tabl1, tabl1[region])

 

this will be your denominator.

@BKnecht

Give this a try...

% Measure =
DIVIDE (
    SUM ( Table[# Outstanding] ),
    CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table[# Outstanding] ), ALLSELECTED ( Table[Flag Color] ) ),
    0
)

So if you already have a Measure for the # Outstanding just subsititute with it in the above fomula.

Or if you count # Outstanding change the SUM above to the function you are actually using.

Good Luck! Smiley Happy

HTH!

 

EDIT: ALLEXCEPT would not work in a Matrix if in addition to the Rows you also have a Column field which it appears you do.

It will only give you the correct % in the Total Column at the end.
