Sum of subcategories in same table

Hi 

 

I am looking to summerise the estimated worktime from diffrent assignments. My problem is that the time is registrede on a mixture of the main assignment and serval sub assignments. See example.

I can find the "Estimate" with the sum( function and the "Sub assignment estimate" by useing the "subassignment" number from the data set instead of "assignment" in the result table. But this solution doesn't allow me to add the data to the same table.

 

Does anyone know a function I can use to have both these numbers in the same table?

Hi @ThomasWeppler ,

 

Based on your description, I think you can create a calculated table as follows.

Result =
VAR x1 =
SUMMARIZE (
'Data',
Data[Assignment],
'Data'[Estimate],
"Sub assignment estimate",
SUMX (
FILTER ( ALL ( Data ), [Sub assignment] = EARLIER ( Data[Assignment] ) ),
[Estimate]
)
)
RETURN
FILTER (
ADDCOLUMNS ( x1, "total estimate", [Estimate] + [Sub assignment estimate] ),
[Sub assignment estimate] <> BLANK ()
)

Result:
