Report Visualization Issue

May I ask if someone can enlighten me about an issue in my report. I made a DAX formula to average items that only shows figures. The pie chart I made shows correct values and equivalent percentage. However, when I made a table out of those figures, the percentage show differently. It seems the percentage came from the sum of the average of multiple items which I cannot traced anymore. I'd like to reiterate that the source of these 2 visualizations came from the same source which is the DAX formula I made.

Re: Report Visualization Issue

hi, @PowerBI-user20 

"%CT" is just the current row value / the measure total of current level.

For example:

In your matrix, %CT Average Cost =Average Cost / measure total (192890010)

9.JPG

But in the pie percent is the value / the total value of current level (SUM all the value of measure).

 

and the difference between measure total and total value, please see this post about it

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