## Power BI Matrix Calculated Column

I created the matrix below and I have page filters based on id and month.

Is there a way for me to create a calculated column that does Failures/Flights? I tried creating it as an additional column on my data, but is not dynamic by months/ids filtered.

Thank you!

## Re: Power BI Matrix Calculated Column

Hi there

When you say a column that does Failures/Flights, would you want a combination of both of them?

If so you could create a New Measure with the following: Flights & Failures = SUM(Table[Flights]) + SUM(Table[Failures])

I solved it by creating a new measure instead of a new quick measure.

Flights/Failures = DIVIDE(SUM('Table'[Failures Count]),SUM('Table'[Flight Count]))

Hi Gilbert,

No, I need Failures divided by Flights but it has to be dynamic based on the parameters chosen for the matrix.

I have Filters by ID and Month.

Thanks!
