Re: Percent of group total

Hello,

 

Below is a table of sample data:

 

 Sample data.JPG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following the steps in this post, I created the following measures:

 

     %Activity = DIVIDE(SUM(TableA[Hours]), CALCULATE(SUM(TableA[Hours]), ALLSELECTED(TableA[Activity])))

 

     %Charge = DIVIDE(SUM(TableA[Hours]), CALCULATE(SUM(TableA[Hours]), ALLSELECTED(TableA[Charge])))

 

     %Employee = DIVIDE(SUM(TableA[Hours]), CALCULATE(SUM(TableA[Hours]), ALLSELECTED(TableA[Employee])))

 

     Level1 = IF([%Activity]=1, [%Charge], [%Activity])

 

     MeasureSelect = IF([Level1]=1, [%Employee], [Level1])

 

The resulting matrix is below:

 

:Sample matrix.JPG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note that where there is a single value at the lowest level (e.g. under Customer Charge), the % is calculating as the % of that value across all employees, rather than for the single employee.  Each one of the lines for Project A should show 100% as it is 100% of the values under Customer Charge.  Non-customer Charges - where there are more than one at the lowest value - are calculating correctly.

 

Do you have any idea why this is happening and how to fix it?

 

 

Thank you very much for any help you can provide.

Re: Percent of group total

Hello,

 

Thank you for the pbi file!  Curiously, why this works with my sample data, when I created corresponding 'Total hours' and 'Measure' in my actual pbi dataset it did not return the same results.  In this case, those with a single value at the lowest level correctly calculated to 100%, yet those with multiple values - which previously calculated correctly - now show erroneous %.  I cannot even determine what the % returned is representing.  I've uploaded the pbix here:  https://onedrive.live.com/?id=1EB3E05CD18D263A%2123936&cid=1EB3E05CD18D263A

 

Thank you,
