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

 

Can someone please help me with the Dax code for making this measure?

 

WeekdayOrders_Count_Orders%GT Orders_Count_Orders
Mon93215.49%
Tue116019.28%
Wed111818.58%
Thu85014.13%
Fri77012.80%
Sat5859.72%
Sun6019.99%

 

Thank you in advance for any help

Roger

@Rogerh , Try a measure like

 

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