Total Sum with Different Columns In Direct Query

Hello, 

 

I'm having trouble performing dax formula to give me the total spend for each table (asianamerican,diverse,africanamerican,wbe,divattributes) with the total coming from the fiscspend table with a relationship by the tax id. The Facts table (fiscspnd) is a direct query connection. 

 

1st Question For example, I'm looking to do Total Asian American Spend = Sum or Calculate? Asian Table [ethnicity] = "Asian Amerian"? I also tried to do related with no success. 

 

2nd Question :After having Total Asian American Spend I want to know the % of the Total Spend (this dax formula works)

 

Would just a simple % of Spend =total asianamerican spend / total spend?

Thank you for your guidance!

Hi @Anonymous,

You can also try to use the following measure formula if helps:

Total Asian American Spend =
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( Fiscspend[Sales] ),
    ALLSELECTED ( Fiscspend ),
    AsianAmerian[ethnicity] = "Asian Amerian"
)

% of Spend =
[Total Asian American Spend]
    / CALCULATE ( SUM ( Fiscspend[Sales] ), ALLSELECTED ( Fiscspend ) )
