## Calculate (subtract) total value result in Matrix visual with another value

Sorry for making a mockup data in excel. But I have column and row total in one Matrix visual (Actuals). Would like to calculate (Subtract) data from another dataset (Forcast). And get Delta (Actuals total - Forcast total)

Appreciate any help.

Hi @Anonymous,

If I understand correctly, you want to get the matrix visual like the screenshot below.

If so, you can write your measures like so:

1. Create relationship between table ‘Actual’ and ‘Forcast’ based on Region.
2. Create measures like so:
Actual Row Total =
SUMX ( Actual, Actual[Department 1] ) + SUMX ( Actual, Actual[Department 2] )

Forcast Row Total =
SUMX ( Forcast, Forcast[Department 1] )
+ SUMX ( Forcast, Forcast[Department 2] )

Forcast Row Total - Actual Row Total =
Forcast[Forcast Row Total] - Actual[Actual Row Total]

There is a relationship between both the tables via region

I just want to calculate difference between a fixed value (AOP Q4) & Matrix calculated values of Total (Actuals + Commits). But a simple formula in excel is a complicated one in PowerBI

Hi @Anonymous ,

You can create your measure like so:

Delta =
MAX ( 'Table 2'[AOP Q4] )
- ( MAX ( 'Table 1'[Actuals] ) + MAX ( 'Table 1'[Commits] ) )

In this DAX expression, [Actuals], [Commits] and [AOP Q4] are all columns. If they are measures in your file, 'MAX' is not needed.
