## Requesting help with DAX Calculation

Team,
I have a matrix where i am trying to calculate cost per case. The formula for that would be - Total Product Cost / Total# of Cases. I created two measures. One to sum the total product cost and another to calculate distinct count of the cases and then created a third measure called cost per case utilizing the two measures for numerator and denominator.

Now, if you look at the Category D in the attached snapshot, it calculates the total product cost  of each of the items in the drill down and takes the distinct number of cases where that item had been utilized - Which is correct but, is there any way i can have the denominator constant (Total # of cases by distinct names and by year since i might be adding a slicer for year in the future)?

For example, if i breakdown the 3164.91, i should be able to see the breakdown of what comprises to 3614.91 rather than an average. In other words, i want the product cost of each item divided by the total # of cases for each names.

Can someone assist me with this ?

Thanks in advance

The data structure looks like this

Hello @vmurali1 if you want the #cases to be constant by year, you can try to first create a new column year with formula

Year= YEAR(table[case date])

Then create a new measure

# cases by year = Calculate(distinctcount[column you want],allexcept(table,table[Year]))

If you want the # cases by year according to column "name" then just do

# cases by year = Calculate(count(table[name],allexcept(table,table[Year],table[name]))

Thank you for the response but, i want the number of cases to be constant by name (first col) and year.
