## Percentage of grand total, Create a measure that can be used in another calculation

Hello Power BI Community,

I'm having trouble trying to work out how to create a measure that is a Persentage of a grand total so I can use the measure in another calculation. I know you can update a Measure to be a percentage of a grand total (as shown below) but I am unable to use that for the next calculation.

My table is currently set up as follows:

Weekday = from my Calander Table

Orders_Count_Orders = Measure for Total of Orders placed

The next column is what I want to change to be an actual measure but it is currently made up of the 'Orders_Count_Orders' using the drop down in the values to change it to the show value as a percentage of grand total

%GT Orders_Count_Orders = Measure for Total of Orders placed, show value as to percentage of grand total

 Weekday Orders_Count_Orders %GT Orders_Count_Orders Mon 932 15.49% Tue 1160 19.28% Wed 1118 18.58% Thu 850 14.13% Fri 770 12.80% Sat 585 9.72% Sun 601 9.99%

Thank you in advance for any help

@Rogerh , Try a measure like

divide(sum(Table[Orders_Count_Orders]) , calculate(sum(Table[Orders_Count_Orders]) , allselected(Table)))

@Rogerh  use below measure
GT_% = SUM('%GT'[Orders_Count_Orders])/CALCULATE(SUM('%GT'[Orders_Count_Orders]),ALLSELECTED('%GT'))
