grouping measure results

I have a matrix with a measure for Gross Profit %, and in another matrix i want to group the items in % ranges, and count the number of items in each. 

 

To calculate the gross profit % in the first matrix, i used:  Gross Profit% = CALCULATE(([Total Sales]-[Total Cost])/[Total Sales])  Total sales and total cost are measures to sum the columns in the sales order detail table. 

 

Here is the measure i tried to create for the new matrix, but it didnt work: GP% Category = COUNTAX('sales order detail',IF([Gross Profit%] <0, "-Negative", IF([Gross Profit%]>-1 && [Gross Profit%] <11, "0-10%", IF([Gross Profit%]>10 && [Gross Profit%]<21, "11-20%", IF([Gross Profit%]>20 && [Gross Profit%]<31, "21-30%", IF([Gross Profit%]>30 && [Gross Profit%]<61, "31-60%", IF([Gross Profit%]>60 && [Gross Profit%]<81, "61-80%", IF([Gross Profit%]>80, "81% and Higher", "Null"))))))))

 

 

Visual 1 is the matrix i have built, and visual 2 is what i want to build.

You'll need to add a configuration table first.

Hi @wmeyer. Did you ever figure this out? I am having to do the same thing with my data.

@dcunningham27 No, i didn't unfortunately. I struggled with it for awhile and then just gave up and moved on to other things.

Sam, Thank you for posting that, but unfortunately that doesn't get me where I'm trying to go. In that measure that was suggested, it is calculating the count from a column, however, I dont have that data in a column, and it is aggregted in a measure. I have a measure that is calculating the Gross Profit %, and the Gross Profit % calculated in the measure is what I am trying to count. Is it possible to count the output of values of a measure?
