Re: Wrong Sum totals when using a SUM measure from two different Tables

Hello, I had an similar issue with multiplication.

 

In the sum row it multiplies sum(Quantity)*sum(Price) meaning 27,551 * 320,33.

 

In such cases please use sumx:

SUMX(OIBT;[Quantity]*[LstEvlPric]).

 

It seems as if [Quantity] and [LstEvlPric] are in 2 different tables (OIBT and OITM). In this case you need to relate this tables and use related either before Quantity or LstEvlPric depending on the table you want to build your measure in.

 

Best regards.

The SUM(OIBT[Quantity])*OIBT[LstEvlPric]) measure calculates on all items in the OIBT table, if you place the measure in a visual card it should display the same amount of 8M.

 

If you want this to work i think you need to make measures for quantity and price and rewrite the original measure to calculate using the two new measures.

try this :

 

SUMX(OIBT;[Quantity]* related(OITM([LstEvlPric]))).
