Hi @jimpatel ,
Don't worry, I'll do my best to come up with an effective solution for you!
First, I'll start by offering the following solution ideas based on your description as I understand it
1.open the subtotal function in visual
2.create a measure

If you want to get the value of total to use, I suggest you to create a measure to calculate the rows and columns of the table, which will work similarly to the subtotals function. Even better,
you can use your measure and change its type (e.g. from text to numeric) without affecting the table data itself.
Like this:

I hope my suggestions  give you good ideas, if you have any more questions, please clarify in a follow-up reply.

Best Regards,
