## Several Calculation same column DAX

Hi!

I need to calculate a colum (row by row)  with a certain amount for my report.

In excell I would type:

+(1*(Column1/Column2)-(Column1)

Column1 Is an amount and Column2 a percentage.

How do I do this in Power BI, and will it be a measure or a column?

Than you!

@vickyno , Try a new column like

divide([Column1],[Column2])-([Column1])

Hi,

if your calculation is line by line, it should be a calculated column and your formula should be like :

Name of Column = (1*([NameColumn1]/[NameColumn2])-[NameColumn1]

or

Name of Column = (1*DIVIDE([NameColumn1],[NameColumn2])-[NameColumn1]

In Power BI you use the name of your columns not their address (B12).
You should be help by predictive keyboard.
