Using a measure with filtered data

Hello,

 

I have a measure that adds up a column and then divides each row in that column by the total of the column (calculating percentage). However, when I filter by a different column, the original total of the column changes. I am trying to make it so the total of the column will not change even when filters are applied.

 

I want it to look like the yellow where if you filter something out, it will still take that number into account when computing the total. Hoping to modify my measure/create a new one that can do this.

Percent measure : =
VAR _allcount =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( Data[Count] ), REMOVEFILTERS ( Offers[OfferName] ) )
VAR _count =
SUM ( Data[Count] )
VAR _result =
DIVIDE ( _count, _allcount )
RETURN
_result

@angevin17 You will need an ALL statement in your measure somewhere.
