HI @Dougers1 ,

create the  measure below. Replace"TimeCalc" with your table name.

``````total time (hours and mins) =
IF(SELECTEDVALUE(TimeCalc[Status]) ="Substantive Filled",
FORMAT( SUM(TimeCalc[Hours]),"HH:MM"),
blank()
)``````

If this doesn't resolve the issue, please provide a sample output.

Hi @Dougers1,

You can create a measure as follows.

``total hours = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Hours]),FILTER('Table', 'Table'[Status] = "Substantive Filled"))``

Is this the result you expect?

Best Regards,

this is bringing me back wrong sum - its saying person A has worked 6hr 35 mins  for oct   - thats not correct answer should be 116hrs:15 mins

Frequent Visitor

i added this   but it not adding them up correct sometimes it is but  other times it saying 32 hrs when it only 8

Duration Hour Minute =
//Find hour of time
VAR _Hour = HOUR( SELECTEDVALUE( Interpreting[Hours] ) )
//Find minute as proportion of hour
VAR _Minute = DIVIDE(MINUTE( SELECTEDVALUE( Interpreting[Hours] ) ), 60, 0 )
VAR _Result = _Hour + _Minute

RETURN
_Result

then

Duration Sum v2 = SUMX( Interpreting, Interpreting[Duration Hour Minute] )
but it bringing back differnt sums??

Super User

The VAR result is adding hour and minutes as integer value, not a time value to which works display it in hh:mm format

Would you be able to share the pbix/raw data masking sensitive information?
