Measure not Totaling Correctly



I have tried a bunch of different ways to fix this and i still cannot get this to total correctly.  I have a measure taking my Transaction Qty divided by Units Per Case to get the Total Cases,however, it is not totaling correctly.


I tried the below measure and the quantities are right when i go line by line but the total is still very low compared to when i export the data into excel.


Any ideas? Below are some of the measures that i've tried.


SUMX(VALUES('Transactions'[Order]),[Total Cases])
IF(COUNTROWS(VALUES([Transactions [Order]))=1,[Total Cases],SUMX(VALUES([Transactions [Order]),[Total Cases])
IF(HASONEFILTER([Transactions [Order]),[Total Cases],SUMX(VALUES([Transcation[Order]),[Total Cases]))

@Bryanna First, please vote for this idea:

This looks like a measure totals problem. Very common. See my post about it here:

Also, this Quick Measure, Measure Totals, The Final Word should get you what you need:

Your approach with a measure like this is correct. Do you have other columns in your visual? If so, you likely need to use SUMMARIZE instead.


SUMX(VALUES('Transactions'[Order]),[Total Cases])
