Display % in Matrix visual with decimal number formatting - within multiple filtered contexts v2

Hello DAXperts,

I have posted a similar issue before here and that was resolved perfectly.

This one is a different problem as I have different formulas in different contexts.

I have a matrix visual showing data from a "MainData" table.
I have been able to display % numbers for selected rows with a decimal formatted matrix.

This works for the single monthly columns (measures), but does not work for the Full Year (custom measure called "Total"), and also does not work for the corresponding "Budget" full year total (also a custom measure).


I want these two columns/measures ("Total" and "Budget") to show % values at selected rows consistent with the other columns in the matrix.

Currently, the decimals also looks to be incorrect. Ideally, the Gross Profit % or any percentages should be divided by Revenue like the other columns.
Gross Profit % = Gross Profit / Revenue
Earnings Before Tax % = Earnings Before Tax / Revenue

Please see below image & attached PBIX file.
Any suggestions or workarounds much appreciated.

Hi @tamerj1,


I had a look at the example you posted, unfortunately it is similar but not the same.

If you look at my PBIX file linked above, and refer more so to the first half of the post, it points out that I was able to achieve the % formatting for other columns, but not on the Total & Budget columns specifically. (ie. solution in column 1-12 is different to a solution required in column 13 and different again in column 14.

The two columns (measures) are within several layers of filter contexts and behaves differently to the other columns in the same table.


Please have a look and let me know your suggestions/solutions.

Thanks for your help on this.
