## Multiply a column by another result

Hi Guys,

Can you help me again please?

I'm trying to gain a solution to show a % result (Margin) from a Joint venture?

The main data currently shows FULL margin so I wanted to add in a calculation to show the 'Would Be' margin based on the allocated joint venture %.

I.e. For Company A, who has a 50% Joint venture, Total Margin=£100 so Calculated Margin should be £50.

For Company B, who has no (100%) Joint Venture, Total Margin =£100 so Calculated Margin should be £100.

I have a separate data table (Joint_Venture) that lists the different companies i.e. A, B, C D.... by the would be weighting i.e. 50%, 100%,30%100%.... etc

I'm guessing this would involve a DAX calulation that says  Total Margin * JV% where the JV% is 'Looked up' based on the company name?

I hope this makes sense? Any pointers would be appreciated?

Cheers,

John

@john_whelan   Try this DAX measure

Margin JV = SUMX('Data','Data'[Margin CTD] * RELATED('Joint_Venture'[JV]))

Any questions,let me know

@john_whelan Not really enough information to go on, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.

## Re: Multiply a column by another result

Hi,

Hopefully these screen shots will help?

All I'm looking to do is create a second results calculation.

That will be called Margin AFTER JV %

so for eg. Company 210 will have a result of 50% of 2,815,855.04 so will be 1,407,927.52

Hope this makes sense?

Hi @john_whelan ,

Try the following measure:

``````Margin AFTER JV % =
VAR a =
SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Data'[Company] )
RETURN
SUM ( Data[Margin CTD] )
* LOOKUPVALUE ( 'Joint venture'[JV], 'Joint venture'[Company], a )``````
