## Calculate profit for every client individually

Hey PowerBi Community, I have a simple beginners question.

I have a table with 6 columns: client, invoice number, date, quantity, sales price and cost to manufacture (profit is a measure: quantity*sales price-quantity*cost to manufacture). I want to create a measure that displays total profit by client next to each invoice (order), is that possible?

Hi @Anonymous ,

You may create measure like DAX below .

``````Profit =
VAR _Quatity =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[quantity] ),
ALLEXCEPT ( Table1, Table1[client], Table1[invoice number] )
)
RETURN
_Quatity
* ( MAX ( [sales price] ) - MAX ( [cost to manufacture] ) )
``````

@Anonymous ,  Try

new column = [quantity]*([sales price]-[cost])

new measure = sumx(table, [quantity]*([sales price]-[cost]))

@amitchandak Both new column and new measure just show profit for every order next to the invoice number, but I want to see the total profit from the client that made the order next to the invoice number.

HI @Anonymous ,

Total Sales = SUM(Table[Sales])

Total Cost = SUM(Table [Cost])

Profit = [Total Sales] - [Total Cost]
