Column Comparison Percent of progress

I'm new to Power BI and I want to show the total percent of miles complete against the forecasted miles. I want my stacked bar chart to reflect that 84.9% of forecasted miles have been completed. However Power BI is displaying the allocation for the miles complete and forecast miles. Instead of showing 84.9% its showing 45.9%. How do I fix this? Percent of Column Total percent of progress

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Can you provide your expectations what the bar graph looks like?

From the data you give to test, the following measurement can get 84.9%

Measure = DIVIDE(SUM('Table'[Miles Complete]),SUM('Table'[Forecast Miles]))

It is responding by saying the Expression Error: The name 'Divide' wasn't recognized, make sure its spelled correctly, but looks like its spelled correctly.
