Summarize function providing wrong results.

I'm trying to summarize a table to display values by month 

 

SUMMARIZE(Sales_View,Sales_View[Div],Sales_View[Code],Sales_View[Brands],Sales_View[Billing Month_Year],Sales_View[Type],"Value",SUM(Sales_View[VALUE]))
 
The SUM is calculated wrong. It's displaying more than expected value.

Don't use SUMMARIZE to add calculated columns, use ADDCOLUMNS instead

 

 

ADDCOLUMNS (
    SUMMARIZE (
        Sales_View,
        Sales_View[Div],
        Sales_View[Code],
        Sales_View[Brands],
        Sales_View[Billing Month_Year],
        Sales_View[Type]
    ),
    "Value", CALCULATE( SUM ( Sales_View[VALUE] ) )
)

 

 

If you're interested, there's a SQL BI article about it.

My mistake. I have edited my original post to include the required CALCULATE around the SUM.
