## DIVIDE monthly rows per category by total table rows

Hi guys,

I'm pretty new to Power Bi, and I've been struggling with the table task below.

I've got the following table where each row is either ACTUAL or PLANNED.

CostSourceCount is counting how many ACTUAL or PLANNED rows I've got per month.

What I want to achieve with the TotalPlanned column is to divide the COUNT of CostSource / COUNT of Total Table Rows.

Something like this:

 Month CostSource CostSourceCount TotalPlanned Jan ACTUAL 2 0.1% Jan PLANNED 1654 99.9% Feb ACTUAL 164 7.1% Feb PLANNED 2149 92.9% Mar ACTUAL 498 20.3% Mar PLANNED 1958 79.7%

I tried the formula below, but all rows are returning 100%

TotalPLanned =
VAR Total = COUNTROWS(VW_PlacementMonthlyBilling)
Var Actual = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table1), FILTER(Table1,Table1[CostSource]="Actual"))
Var Planned = CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table1), FILTER(Table1,Table1[CostSource]="Planned"))
RETURN
IF(
DIVIDE(Actual,Total)=0,DIVIDE(Planned,Total), DIVIDE(Actual, Total))

Does anyone know a better way to do this? It has to be a measure because I have to create a bar afterwards

Thanks,
G

Hi, @Anonymous

Please check the below picture and the sample pbix file's link down below.

CostSourceCount Measure =
SUM('Table'[CostSourceCount])

TotalPlanned =
DIVIDE (
[CostSourceCount Measure],
CALCULATE ( [CostSourceCount Measure], ALLEXCEPT ( 'Table', 'Table'[Month] ) )
)

Hi Jihwan,

Thank you, that was helpful.

Would it be possible to add another column where I divide the ACTUAL by PLANNED?

E.g.

April ACTUAL 1014 / PLANNED 1840 = 55%

April PLANNED 1840/ PLANNED 1840 = 100%

Hi, @Anonymous

Thanks for your feedback.

I am not sure if I understood your question correctly, but please check the below.

Divide by Planned =
IF (
ISFILTERED ( 'Table'[Month] ),
DIVIDE (
[CostSourceCount Measure],
CALCULATE ( [CostSourceCount Measure], 'Table'[CostSource] = "PLANNED" )
)
)
