Hello,

I want create report in which will be sum of sales and percent from sum on group. I know in Power BI exists Quick measures, but they calculate percent from grand total, i need calculate percent from the above group.

Below is an example:

Hi @ghetus,

This is first time I'm facing with % total of multiple levels, so I separate it into 3 measures and use a trick with If condition to showing 3 measures for 3 levels.

• Create % for the smallest level (items)

`% level 3 = DIVIDE(sum('Sales Data'[Sales]),CALCULATE(sum('Sales Data'[Sales]),ALLSELECTED('Sales Data'[Item])  ) )`
• The Second level

```% level 2 = DIVIDE(sum('Sales Data'[Sales]),CALCULATE(sum('Sales Data'[Sales]),ALLSELECTED('Sales Data'[Category])  ) )

```
• And the first level (markets)
`% level 1 = DIVIDE(sum('Sales Data'[Sales]),CALCULATE(sum('Sales Data'[Sales]),ALLSELECTED('Sales Data'[Market])  ) )`

As my observation, when showng 1 level in matrix, the parent will be 100% or 1, so I will use IF condition to replace this value to its percentage in the previous level

• Create measure for Level 2:

`Level 2 = if([% level 3]=1 , [% level 2],[% level 3])`

• Finally, create measure for level 1 with name % group:
`% group = if([Level 2]= 1,[% level 1] ,[Level 2])`

For more details, please kindly check my sample file and data for your case.

It's late in Vietnam so i'm going to bed now, hope you take a look with some testing to ensure this is correct for all cases.

If this works for you please accept it as solution and also like to give KUDOS.

Best regards

It is not identical.  In the revised one, i have used the ALLSELECTED() function.  I tried it and it worked fine.

I apologize, I should have posted an update.  Yes, the latest measure is working.  It was easier to see the correct percentages by turning off subtotals on the employee level.  It is now clear that it is calculating correctly.

Thank you for all of your help!

Hello Tri,

I am creating my first Power BI dashboard and I am having trouble with getting a percent formula working. We have data for manufacturing orders for several years, and we need to create an Labor Efficiency rate. The basic calculation is Cost put into WIP Labor/Cost Consumed Labor. I am using the this formula:

Efficiency Percent = DIVIDE(SlbMoStatus[Cost Put into WIP Labor],SlbMoStatus[Costs Consumed Labor])

I have set filters to select only year 2017 and for closed orders but my Efficiency rate results are way off.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi,

There is no mistake in your formula.  Show some data and your expected result.

Sum of Eficiency

That is the result for my formual. The correct total for January 2017 for only closed manufacturing orders should be 104%

I am attaching some sample date for you.

 Manufacturing Order MO Status Outsourced Costs Consumed Labor Cost Put into WIP Labor Change Date Total Costs Consumed Total Cost Put into WIP 1604629 Closed Yes 1,272.54000 1,601.92000 1/18/2017 3,697.38000 4,467.02000 1604969 Closed Yes 1,747.83000 1,662.19000 1/18/2017 6,207.81000 6,032.54800 1605069 Closed Yes 1,533.40000 1,344.00000 1/18/2017 3,932.61000 3,556.84188 1605070 Closed Yes 1,385.80000 1,232.86000 1/18/2017 3,554.07000 3,276.73688 1605240 Closed Yes 1,108.71000 1,585.83000 1/18/2017 0.00000 4,120.27800 1605240 Closed Yes 1,108.71000 1,585.83000 1/18/2017 3,099.15000 4,120.27800

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

You have created Efficiency Percent as a calculated column formula.  You should delete it from there and create it as a Measure.

You can create a hierarchical measure like described here: http://www.sqlbi.com/articles/clever-hierarchy-handling-in-dax/
