Totals are not working properly

I have the data in the below format, I am trying to get the difference between the best and hours while neglecting the negatives in total. So the diff column in the visual should show 8.64 instead of 6.56. I have tried Inscope and it is not working, am i missing something here?

@Sidhu Try this:

Diff V3 = 
    VAR __Table = 
        ADDCOLUMNS(
            ADDCOLUMNS(
                SUMMARIZE( 'Table', [Category A], [Category B], "__Hours", SUM( 'Table'[Hours] ) ),
                "__BestHours", [Best Hours]
            ),
            "__Diff", [__Hours] - [__BestHours]
        )
    VAR __Diff = [Diff V1]
    VAR __Result = 
        IF( 
            ISINSCOPE( 'Table'[Category A] ),
            __Diff,
            SUMX( FILTER( __Table, [__Diff] > 0 ), [__Diff] )
        )
RETURN
    __Result

This looks like a measure totals problem. Very common. See my post about it here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/DAX-Commands-and-Tips/Dealing-with-Measure-Totals/td-p/63376

Hi @Greg_Deckler ,

 

Thanks for quick response, I have tried the methods which you mentioned. It is not working properly, I tried InScope, HasOneValue & HasOneFilter. I think the way my data is represented might be causing issues. Can you take a look at the file which I added in the earlier post?

@Sidhu Try this:

Diff V3 = 
    VAR __Table = 
        ADDCOLUMNS(
            ADDCOLUMNS(
                SUMMARIZE( 'Table', [Category A], [Category B], "__Hours", SUM( 'Table'[Hours] ) ),
                "__BestHours", [Best Hours]
            ),
            "__Diff", [__Hours] - [__BestHours]
        )
    VAR __Diff = [Diff V1]
    VAR __Result = 
        IF( 
            ISINSCOPE( 'Table'[Category A] ),
            __Diff,
            SUMX( FILTER( __Table, [__Diff] > 0 ), [__Diff] )
        )
RETURN
    __Result
