Measure SUM

Hello, I have a table visual with number of travel and non travel days per emplyee. The requirements is that each person is supposed to travel 301 days out of the year, so I am trying to make a measure that shows the difference. I need that number to sum to a total at the bottom, but it doesn't and I dont know how to apply SUMx or SUM in this example.

 

(Note: 'Labor Cost per Day'[Person Traveling) is a value of 1 or 0 in  a calendar table. If person is traveling on that day, it's 1. If not, it's 0)

 

Measure:

Days Difference =
//minimum is 43 weeks=301 days
var diff=SUM('Labor Cost per Day'[Person Traveling)
return  IF(diff>=301,0,301-diff)

Hi @Kinga99 

Please try

Days Difference =
SUMX (
VALUES ( 'Labor Cost per Day'[Person] ),
CALCULATE (
VAR diff =
SUM ( 'Labor Cost per Day'[Person Traveling] )
RETURN
IF ( diff >= 301, 0, 301 - diff )
)
)

Hi @Kinga99 

Please try

Days Difference =
SUMX (
VALUES ( 'Labor Cost per Day'[Person] ),
CALCULATE (
VAR diff =
SUM ( 'Labor Cost per Day'[Person Traveling] )
RETURN
IF ( diff >= 301, 0, 301 - diff )
)
)

Thank you, that worked like a charm!
