Sum Total Row based on Weighted Average values above it

Trying to sum the values of a weighted average column using the records above the "Total" row

I can only get the Total Row to use the same weighted average calculations as the rows above it

 

ProjectsCountPercent of TotalAverage ScoreWeighted Score 
    =C*D 
Project A1029% 3.25  0.93  
Project B514% 3.10  0.44  
Project C2057% 2.50  1.43  
 Total35100% 2.95  2.80 =.93+.44+1.43
    Need to get 2.8 NOT 2.95 
      
      
   I get this 2.95 =100% * 2.95

Re: Sum Total Row based on Weighted Average values above it

Assuming these are measures, you generally have to use an IF statement coupled with a HASONEFILTER statement to calculate the measure one way versus another for the individual rows versus the total row.

Re: Sum Total Row based on Weighted Average values above it

Hi @aykim101,

 

For 'Average Score', you could create a measure like:

Average Score = AVERAGE(Sheet1[Score]) 

 

For 'Weighted Score', you could create a calculated column like:

Weighted Score Col = Sheet1[Percent of Total]*[Average Score]

Re: Sum Total Row based on Weighted Average values above it

thank you for the reply

that is the logic being used; however the "Total" row needs to sum the row values above it and NOT use the same Weighted Score calculation

Hi @aykim101,

 

If you add a calculated column into table visual and enable the total row, the "Total" row will sum the row values above it automatically.

Re: Sum Total Row based on Weighted Average values above it

i still cannot get the total row to sum the weighted score rows above it

 

what do you mean by "add a calculated column"?

Hi @aykim101,

 

What I meant "Add a calculated column" is creating a column rather than measure.

Could you please teel me in your scenario, whether above fields [Count], [Percent of Total], [Average Score] and [Weighted Score] are columns or measures?
