## Percent of grand total showing incorrectly in column chart with small multiples.

Hello! I'm trying to show the percentage calculation in a clustered column chart with small multiples of two. However, I can't seem to get the denominator value right in my visual. My table looks something like this:

 Student Number Gender Attendance 100 Male Very Good 101 Female Very Good 102 Female Inconsistent 103 Male Poor 104 Male Good

Currently, I'm plotting this information in a chart with small multiples of Gender column, X axis of Attendance column, and Y axis being a simple COUNTA(Student Number) column that I show as Percent of grand total. Here's the screenshot of how it looks presently:

Expected result is that each gender field should have a combined total of 100% across the 4 attendance categories. For example, in this visual it should display something like this:
Female- Very Good = 40%, Good = 30%, Inconsistent = 20%, Poor = 10%
Male- Very Good = 30%, Good = 30%, Inconsistent = 20%, Poor = 20%

According to your description, here are my steps you can follow as a solution.

(1) My test data is the same as yours.

(2) We can create a measure.

``````Measure =
var _a=COUNTROWS(FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),'Table'[Gender]=MAX('Table'[Gender])))
var _b=COUNTROWS(FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),'Table'[Gender]=MAX('Table'[Gender]) && 'Table'[Attendance]=MAX('Table'[Attendance])))
return DIVIDE(_b,_a)``````

(3) Then the result is as follows.

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your response and providing the PBIX file. I tried a similar approach to yours and it worked for me. I ended up writing this measure:

``````DIVIDE(COUNTA(Student Number),
CALCULATE(COUNTA(Student Number), ALLSELECTED(Table), VALUES(Table[Gender]) ))``````

I appreciate your input and help regarding this. Thank You!
