New Measure - Percentage based on two quantities

Morning All,


I've used commnity support in the past on things such as VBA and again more recently following a D365 go-live and learning to link PBI and Dynamics..

From pulling a warehouse cycle counting table into PowerBI, I am then trying to add in a column that will give me the percentage for each count. I have managed to return a figure using DIVIDE. However I will need additional conditions if anyone is able to help please.

If you expect say 10pcs, but count 11, I would need this to instead return 90% accuracy, rather than 110%.

So far, the formula used is: 

Percentage = DIVIDE([ExpectedQuantity], [CountedQuantity])

So the solution I have managed to get to work is:

Measure 1

Accuracy =
 VAR OnHand = SUM(CycleCountingWarehouseWorkLinesV3[ExpectedQuantity])
 VAR CountedQuantity = SUM(CycleCountingWarehouseWorkLinesV3[CountedQuantity])
 VAR MinValue = MIN(OnHand, CountedQuantity)
 VAR MaxValue = MAX(OnHand, CountedQuantity)
 VAR Accuracy = IF(MaxValue = 0,0,DIVIDE(MinValue, MaxValue, 0))
RETURN Accuracy * 100

Measure 2
AverageAccuracy = Averagex(CycleCountingWarehouseWorkLinesV3,[Accuracy])

I hope  you are doing well!


I have gone through your query along with the sahred picture of data.


As far as i know in this filter contex the desired output is not achievable.


If you are able to try other way to achive it please try that.

Hi, thanks for the above! I have used the measure (also posted below) but returns:

"The syntax for 'return' is incorrect. (DAX(var_CountedQuantity=CALCULATE(COUNT(CycleCountingWarehouseWorkLinesV3[ExpectedQuantity]),FILTER((ALLSELECTED(CycleCountingWarehouseWorkLinesV3[CountedQuantity]=MAX(CycleCountingWarehouseWorkLinesV3[ExpectedQuantity])))
return DIVIDE([ExpectedQuantity Value],_CountedQuantity)))."

Hi @SF2023 ,


If you want a dynamic [ExpectedQuantity], you can try what-if parameters.



After the what-if parameter is created, you get a dynamic [ExpectedQuantity] that can be modified by slicers.


Here's the measure to calculate the percentage.

Percentage = 
var _CountedQuantity=CALCULATE(COUNT('Table'[ID]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[ID]=MAX('Table'[ID])))
return DIVIDE([ExpectedQuantity Value],_CountedQuantity)
