## Get column total and percent of column

I created a matrix of 2 categories and an ID column - the ID column will be used in the "Value" but as COUNT DISTINCT.

I want a measure to insert in between all columns of the matrix that show the % of each row

Example:

 ColumnB Item1 % of Total ColumnA Item1 4 4/13 = 30.77% ColumnA Item2 9 9/13 = 69.23% Total 13 100%

Here is what I've tried and my values are grouped by ColumnA, ColumnB, and date.

``````% of Volume =
VAR totalbyOrigin =
SUMMARIZE (
TableA,
TableA[ColumnA],
TableA[DateCreated],
TableA[ColumnB],
"% of Volume", DISTINCTCOUNT ( TableA[ID] )
)
RETURN
DIVIDE (
totalbyOrigin,
CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( TableA[ID] ), ALLSELECTED () )
)``````

I get the following error message:

The expression refers to multiple columns. Multiple columns cannot be converted to a scalar value.

solving my own problem:

``````% of Volume =
VAR totalbyOrigin =
SUMMARIZE (
TableA,
TableA[ColumnA],
TableA[DateCreated],
TableA[ColumnB],
"Volume", DISTINCTCOUNT ( TableA[ID] )
)
RETURN
DIVIDE (
SUMX( totalbyOrigin, [Volume]), 100
)``````

THen I added this to my matrix and selected "percent of column".
