Summing Error

All, 


I'm having an issue summing.  Here is the calc I'm using for Biz 2. 

 

IF(SUM(Hours[Total Work Hours]) <=0, BLANK(), SUM('Calendar'[Business Hours]))

 

Any ideas?  Disregard Client Rate 2.0

Re: Summing Error

Hi there,

 

Happy to help. So the issue is that with the IF statement DAX is going row by row in the Pivot Table and checking to see if Total Working Houres is less than or equal to 0. In the Total Row this value is not 0, so it's summing the entire value of Business Hours. Instead I'd recommend using the CALCULATE function.

 

=
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Calendar'[Business Hours] ),
    FILTER ( Hours, SUM ( Hours[Total Work Hours] ) <= 0 )
)

This one will SUM only those values that were above this, at the grand total level. Compared to the IF statement. Let me know if this works for you.

Re: Summing Error

Thanks!  This definitely worked in the table.  So props there.  One more question...  When I put in the grand total column, or a card, as seen below in the picture, the number isn't correct.  The correct number is 24.01.  Any ideas?

Re: Summing Error

So my first though would be to see if there's any filters on the table that isn't on the card. Is there any version of the workbook you can share for diagnosis? It helps to know what relationships, tables, etc.. are going into that DAX formula.
