## Absolute Percentage Difference

Hello,

I am currently trying to get the absolute percentage difference between 2 time values, but I'm struggling to get it to work.

I have this table:

I need the following calculation: Run_Time/SFI_Total_Posted_Run_Time x 100

However the calculation I use doesnt work:

PercentDiff = CALCULATE(
SUM(RoutingLinesNew[Run_Time])/
SUM(routinglinesnew[sfi_total_posted_run_time]*100))

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

@kelly008 , you have to create a measure like

Divide(

SUM(RoutingLinesNew[Run_Time]),
SUM(routinglinesnew[sfi_total_posted_run_time]))

and mark that as % column

Please remember the two are not equal

Run_Time/SFI_Total_Posted_Run_Time <>

Divide(

SUM(RoutingLinesNew[Run_Time]),
SUM(routinglinesnew[sfi_total_posted_run_time]))
