## 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!
