Percentage Change Query

Hi All,

 

Im trying to calculate a percentage based off two other columns in my Power BI report. I have created a column called the Recovery Percentage to divide the Standard Rated Net by the Net. The Standard Rated Net column has been calculated using the formula: 

 

Standard Rated Net = IF('Sheet1'[Rate]="SR",'Sheet1'[Net],0)

 

The Reporting Month has been calculated using the formula:

 

Reporting Month = EOMONTH(Sheet1[Date],0)

 

However when I change the Reporting Month filter the percentage doesnt seem to change. Please the attached photos.

 

This is correct when all months are accounted for.

Once I have selected multiple months the percentage is clearly wrong.

The data inputted is as follows

Any help would be appreciated and thank you in advance!

Hi @I-Jay-I ,

 

I suggest you to create a measure of Recovery Percentage, then it will work. The following is my sample you can have a try.

 

The calculated column of Standard Rated Net and Reporting Month are both used your formula.

Standard Rated Net = IF('Sheet1'[Rate]="SR",'Sheet1'[Net],0)
Reporting Month = EOMONTH(Sheet1[Date],0)

Create a measure.

Recovery Percentage = DIVIDE(SUM(Sheet1[Standard Rated Net]),SUM(Sheet1[Net]))

Hi Xue Ding,

 

Thanks for this! It appears I was using new column instead of new measure.

 

Thanks!
