## Calculating sum of net sales for distinct column

Hi guys, I am having trouble caclulating the total sales amount filtered by a distinct column  DPBASE (a discount type reference.) My sales table and discount table are connected in a many to many relationship but would if make sense then to create a 1 to many relationship by creating a new table with only the distinct DPBASE's and filtering from there?  As you can see my sales figures do not add up I am just looking for some clarity.  Kind Regards

@cdawidow - 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:

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.
