## Multiplication result in LOD is wrong

I am trying to do a LoD Calculation in Power BI - but it doesn't work like it does in Tableau and I cant figure out what I am doing wrong.

Calculations I am using in Tableau Listed Below

Days = ABS([Line Date] - [Invoice Date])

All Sales = [Sales]+[Sales1]

Multiplication = { FIXED [Document Number]:
SUM([All Sales]*[Days])}

Power BI Formulas I have.

Days = ABS(DATEDIFF(Sheet1[Line Date],Sheet1[Invoice Date],DAY))
All Sales = SUM(Sheet1[Sales])+SUM(Sheet1[Sales1])
Multiplication (the value is wrong )
CALCULATE(
[All Sales]* SUM(Sheet1[Days]),
ALL(Sheet1[Document Number])
)

can anyone state me the reason why the multiplication in power BI is not as same as tableau

I'm attaching the sample file here both tableau and Power BI for reference
Sample File.pbix

Sample.twbx

Help with this is really appreciated
Thanks in advance

Hi, @asdf1608

You can try the following methods.

``Measure = CALCULATE(SUMX(Sheet1, [All Sales] * [Days]))``

Is this the result you expect?
