## Getting 0 for grand total on a created Measure

Hello Everyone,

I feel like this is an easy fix but im abselutely stumped.....

I have seen a couple of forums for items similar to this but they were slightly different/specific and  i wasnt sure how to work those methods into my situation.

I have created a couple of measures.

1. is to caclualte Points times Qty of items.

Spec Point QTY = MIN('SageProductMaster'[Points]) * SUM('spec_credits'[qty_0])

2. is to use the previous measure(Spec Point QTY) to calculate total points times Dollars
Spec Points = [Spec Point QTY]*SUM(spec_credits[untaxed])

While these formula gave me proper results in the view i dont get a grand total for the view it just says 0

This is where i cant seem to figure out how to get Grand Totals. Please Help =]

Good Morning Everyone,

Thank you for your feedback and assistance on this one.

Just wanted to give a shout out to @tamerj1 .

I found an old post he was on and the solution below worked perfectly for what i was needing.

I was able to multiple 2 columns from different tables and get grand totals for my new field categories.

Thought i would share it in case it can help anyone else in the future. Thanks again!

NewMeasure =
SUMX (
Table1,
VAR Name = Table1[Name]
VAR Value1 = Table1[Value]
VAR Value2 =
MAXX ( FILTER ( Table2, Table2[Name] = Name ), Table2[Value] )
RETURN
Value1 * Value2
)

Please see this video. You'll need to use SUMX with VALUES or SUMMARIZE in your measure.
