Running total is reversed

Hello there! I have a running total formula that is performing in the opposite way as expected (needed). I have tried changing it in many ways but it either doesn't make sense or just gives zeros. Right now the output and the formula are as follow:

 

 

 

Running Total %  = 

var rankcheck = RANKX ( ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ), [Valor2],, ASC )
var runningTotal = CALCULATE( [Valor2], FILTER( ALL( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ), RANKX ( ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ), [Valor2], , ASC ) <= rankcheck ))
var totalSales = CALCULATE( [Valor2], ALL( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ))

return 
DIVIDE(runningTotal,totalSales,0)

The expected result is:

Column1Column2Column3
619,4221,89%21,89%
588,5020,80%42,69%
287,1010,15%52,84%

 

Thanks in advance for any kind of help!

Hi @goncalogeraldes 

 

Have you tried changing the sorting order on the rankx?

Running Total % =
VAR rankcheck =
    RANKX ( ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ), [Valor2],, DESC )
VAR runningTotal =
    CALCULATE (
        [Valor2],
        FILTER (
            ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ),
            RANKX ( ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ), [Valor2],, DESC ) <= rankcheck
        )
    )
VAR totalSales =
    CALCULATE ( [Valor2], ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ) )
RETURN
    DIVIDE ( runningTotal, totalSales, 0 )

 

If this does not work can you please share a mockup data or sample of your PBIX file. You can use a onedrive, google drive, we transfer or similar link to upload your files.

If the information is sensitive please share it trough private message.

            ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ),
            RANKX ( ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ), [Valor2],, DESC ) <= rankcheck
        )
    )
VAR totalSales =
    CALCULATE ( [Valor2], ALL ( 'ds05 - Vendas'[Cliente] ) )
RETURN
    DIVIDE ( runningTotal, totalSales, 0 )

@MFelix I have and it never worked until now so I guess it must have been some filter context had in place which has since been deleted! Thanks for your help!
