Re: The totals are inaccurate

Hi @JPY ,

 

It's a very common issue with the Power BI, insted of SUM please SUMX functio. This will resolve the issue.

To know more about how to use SUMX function, please search in youtube for SUMX, you will get to know how to use it.

 

Please let me know if you need any help, happy to help.
