Add the total of a column to another column

Hi everyone,

 

I have two Matrix visuals in which I want to add the total of one to the other and call it EUR-YTD:

PB report.png 

The data looks like this:

FactTable

MainAccountKeyCurrencyKeyAccountingCurrencyTransactionCurrency
111522502260
111544564470

13

1788889000
13181000012000

 

DimCurrency

CurrencyKeyCurrency
15EUR
16USD
18NZD

 

DimMainAccount

1144550
1200112
1300223
1400654

 

The Dim Tables have a one to many relationship with the Fact Table.

 

The mainaccounts are the same in both visuals, so I only need the totals of 'AccountingCurrency' to be a seperate column with currencyname 'EUR-YTD' to be added to the 'TransActionCurrency' for each mainaccount.

 

Is this possible to do with DAX or PowerQuery?

 

Thanks!

Hi @bunyamin360 ,

Are the names of these two columns 11 and 44550?
Then what is the expected result from your sample data?

@bunyamin360 In DAX you would use a technique similar to that for returning the correct total for a measure. This looks like a measure totals problem. Very common. See my post about it here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/DAX-Commands-and-Tips/Dealing-with-Measure-Totals/td-p/63376

Also, this Quick Measure, Measure Totals, The Final Word should get you what you need:
