## Percentage of column total in a stacked column chart

Hello, I have an issue with getting the percentages of some values not of the grand total but of column total given some data. In the axis I'm using "months", the legend is "type of sale" and I have two categories in that column (retail and fleets). In value I was using the sum of cuantity "QTY" , but of course I cannot get the % of the column total in the chart. I've been trying to create a measure to help me, I tried        %column total= DIVIDE (
COUNT(Sheet3[TIPO DE VENTAS]),
SUM(Sheet3[QTY]))        but its not working. I would appreciate any help.

It should give me the values that are on the table on the left side. Thank you

## Re: Percentage of column total in a stacked column chart

Hi @pamebenal,

From your description, you would like to calculate the percentage of each stack value divided by total value of each MES6, right?

You can create a measure below:

Measure = DIVIDE(SUM(Table1[QTY]),CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[QTY]),ALLEXCEPT(Table1,'Table1'[MES6])))

## Re: Percentage of column total in a stacked column chart

Hi,

I am facing the same issue and my column chart cannot display the total of 100% as per our need.

I want to have a stack column chart as shown below, with X axis as the "Count of number of PO" and Y axis as period by month.

The total of each stacked column should add up to 100%, and the column height represents the total number of POs.

I put a DAX formula as a measure of calculation for the percentage of KPI.

Finally, I got a chart like the one shown below but the percentage calculation is for all the data (ie. total of all the columns will be 100%, but not 100% for each individual bar.

Is there any solution to solve the above problem?

Best regards,

Emily

Hi @emilypoon ,

Did you find a solution for this, I was able to get the total of the each stacked column adding to 100% but the column height is not varing, it represents a 100% stacked column.

Please take a look on the DAX used and the output of the visualization and do suggest!!

Regards,

Harish
