Multiply first before summarizing

Hello everyone,

 

I have been working on this report and I stumbled upon one issue.

 

Here's the scenario:

I would like my measure to multipy Data A with Data B first before summing the values.

But what happens is the sum of Data A column is multiplied with the sum of Data B column, which yields a different value than what I want.

 

How do I put that into my measure?

 

Thank you.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

You should use the SUMX expression, this will make the sum of the multiplication for each row

 

DATA A * DATA B = SUMX (Table; Table[Data A] * Table[Data B] )
