the sum of lines containing a multiplication is incorrect.

Hello,

 

I get, I don't think so complicated problem, just not solved.

Goal: I want to calculate the total stockvalue of a warehouse.

 

I have the following data available:

 

table: article

          field: articlecode

table: stock

          field: quantity

table: purchase

          field: purchaesprice

 

By multiplying quantity x purchaseprice I get the stock value per item (articlecode). I get the total stock value by adding up all the lines per item.

The result I now get in the PowerBi report is as follows:

ArticlecodeQuantityPurchasepriceStockvalue
    
A123            25           125,00   3.125,00
B123            10             90,00      900,00
C123               9           275,00   2.475,00
Total            44           490,00 21.560,00
    
Correct     6.500,00

 

So it's totally wrong. The Total is also the multiplication of the totals of quantity and purchase price. It should be as mentioned by Correct.

 

I think it has to do with Sum and Sumx, but I'm not sure what to do.

Please advice.

Hi 

 

Create 2 measures as below.

 

1. Stock Value1 = sum(Stock[Quantity])*sum(Stock[PurchasePrice])

2. Stock Value = sumx(SUMMARIZE(Stock,Stock[ArticleCode],Stock[Quantity],Stock[PurchasePrice]), [Stock Value1])

Hi @Laska 

 

Try this:

Stock Value =
VAR _A =
    ADDCOLUMNS(
        stock,
        "Stockvalue", SUM( stock[quantity] ) * SUM( purchase[purchaesprice] )
    )
RETURN
    SUMX( _A, [Stockvalue] )
