Hi
I have a formula below for calculating the sum of gross risk potential in the table. I want the sum calculation based on the risk name instead of summing up the entire column. I tried the below formula but it is not giving the correct value.
I can give an example
The total sum of gross risk potential is 100. But the gross risk potential for risk A is 20. I want to get this separate value for all the risks i have in a single column without creating multiple columns.
TotalRiskPotentialPerRisk =
SUMX(
VALUES(Top_Risk_Controls[Riskname]),
CALCULATE(
SUM(Top_Risk_Controls[Gross_risk_potential]),
Top_Risk_Controls[Riskname] = EARLIER(Top_Risk_Controls[Riskname])
)
)
In the above formula, im getting the same values as the gross risk potential column instead of the sum of them based on the risk name. How to get the sum of the values based on the risk name.

In tha above table, i have gross potential for each controls and each control is mapped against different risks. I just gave an example of two risks here but i have multiple risks in the original data. I want to create a single formula for the burndown columns
For that,
1. I have to add up the sum of gross_risk_potential and actual_risk_reduction for each of the risk separately
2. There should be cumulative reduction of the values from the sum. For eg Vendorservice transitions risk has the total sum of 60. Control A has gross potential of 10. The gross_potential_burndown should be 50. For control B it would be 50(previous value)20(present value)=30
Basically i want all the above 2 points i.e summing up gross_risk_potential and actual_risk_reduction for each of the risk separately and doing cumulative subtraction for each row.
The closest formula i got was calculating the sum value for each risk separately which implies creating multiple columns and doing the cumulative subtraction. Is there a way easier than this?
The first item is simple
For your second item you need to provide a sort order. Is it supposed to be alphabetic by Controls?
Not sure what the expected outcome should look like for point 2.
Hi,
1. Can you please tell me what will be the calculation for the summing up which you did in the above picture?
2. I have given the expected outcomes in the last two columns of the table Gross risk burndown and actual risk burndown.
iskname  Controls  Gross_risk_potential  Actual_risk_reduction  Completed date  Gross_potential_burndown_remaining  Actual_risk_burndown 
Risk 1  A  £10  £5  04042024  3520=5 35=sum of gross risk potential based on the risk name till time period(04042024) 20=gross risk potential for control A and control B as the completion date is same for both the controls  3515(10+5)=20 
Risk 1  B  £20  £10  04042024  3520=5 35=sum of gross risk potential based on the risk name till time period(04042024) 20=gross risk potential for control A and control B as the completion date is same for both the controls  35(gross risk potential)15(10+5)=20 35=total sum of 
Risk 1  C  £5  £2  30042024  55=0 1st 5=last gross risk potential before the completion date(30042024) 2nd 5=gross risk potential for control C  3517(5+10+2)=18 
Risk 2  D  £10  £5  04042024  5010=40 50=total sum of sum of gross risk potential based on the risk name 10=gross risk potential for control D until the time period.  40 
Risk 2  E  £25  £10  30042024  4040=0 40= Total sum of gross risk potential until the time period(30042024) 40=sum of gross potential for controls E and F as the completion date is same for both of them  35 
Risk 2  F  £15  £4  30042024  4040=0 40= Total sum of gross risk potential until the time period(30042024) 40=sum of gross potential for controls E and F as the completion date is same for both of them  35
I want the last two columns, gave a desirable output along with the calculation. Based on the last two columns i want to create a burndown for the risks on how they are reducing on a regular period with the implementation of controls

1. I used implicit measures directly in the visual.
2. I am very much lost, I don't understand a single one of these calculations. I hope someone else can help you further.
Can you please help me figure out how to get the 1st point values in a formula rather than in a visual. I need a column of those calculations so that i can try to figure out the second part of the problem. Im not able to get the calculations in a column using any formula.
