## Dax Target Measure

Hi

I've got 3 years worth of data visaulised in a line chart for expenditure. Im wanting to create a measure for a target that shows what 3.2% of the total amount would be per month. It's based on payroll so there's multiple different categories of payroll but just want 3.2% of the total to show each month, this would then be dynamic with whatever department the the user chooses in the slicer.

exmaple of 1 month data is :

 Team Category Total A X 250000 A Y 125000 A Z 325000 B X 175000 B Y 225000 B Z 110000 C X 115000 C Y 225000 C Z 310000

The Table data is shown below:

Use the following DAX expression to create a measure

``Measure = SUM('Table'[Total]) * 0.032``

Final output
