## Summarize in DAX, HELP :)

I have the following data:

Dimension1, Dimension2, Value1, and Value2. Now, I want each row to be calculated first in Power BI (PBI), and then the sum of all individual positions from Dimension2 should be added for Dimension1.

Here's how it should look:

 Dimension 1 Dimension 2 Wert 1 Wert 2 Ergebnis A AA 1 5 = 1/5 --> 0,2 A BB 10 10 = 10/10 --> 1 A Total = 1,2

But that's how it looks in PBI:

 Dimension 1 Dimension 2 Wert 1 Wert 2 Ergebnis A AA 1 5 = 0,2 A BB 10 10 = 1 A Total = 0,73

I've already tried Summarize with no success. Can you help me please?

Hi @PWRBI ,
If I understand your issue correctly, you might try this.

``Column = IF(Summary[Dim2]="Total",Sumx(Summary,Divide(Summary[Val1],Summary[Val2])),Divide(Summary[Val1],Summary[Val2]))``

Let me know if you have any questions.

If this solves your issues, please mark it as the solution, so that others can find it easily. Kudos 👍are nice too.

Hi @PWRBI ,

How do you get 38,516.78 on the first row based on this formula.  If you wish me to look at this please include an explanation of what you are trying to do and make your example much clearer than what you did here.  Otherwise you may want to re post this.

Thank you,

No, unfortunately it doesn't work, it's not what I expect. Total is not a dimension, but the total line of Power BI, where the sum must be calculated correctly

Hi @PWRBI ,
If I understand your issue correctly, you might try this - it was not clear in your picture.
If this is not what you wanted, please add some more explanation.

``Column = Divide(Summary[Val1],Summary[Val2])``
