Sum Multiple Filtered Sums

I have 3 seperate cards, reporting the following:

 

  • Yet to bill value (backlog)
  • Changes to the backlog
  • Installed Value

 

The changes and the backlog come from 2 different tables and are filtered differently. Is there a method in which I can sum the 3 cards together, giving me a total?

Re: Sum Multiple Filtered Sums

If the cards are being fed by measures, you could just make a new fourth measure that's something like:

 

OverallTotal = calculate([yettobill])+calculate([backlogchanges])+calculate([installedvalue])

 

As you're using calculate rather than just adding the three together, you can then put the relevant filter context into each bit of the formula to get your desired results, for example if the last one was just calculated over where some field foo has the value bar, you'd have calculate([installedvalue],yourtable[foo]="bar")

Re: Sum Multiple Filtered Sums

That is perfect thankyou.

 

To be honest, I never thought about using measures because of the filters applied, however the filters are just as applicable to the meaure, as they are the intial results....
