Calculating Percentage using different tables

Hi, 

 

I have two tables, one database of shipped sales (Digital_Sales) and of refunds processed by a distribution centre (Database)

The two are connected via a 3rd and 4th table linking the 'date processed in dc_date' to 'fin year period'. 

 

What I'm trying to achieve is to get a visualisation of refunds as a % of sales grouped by period like in the excel example below.

I've tried performing this with the below measure.

 

Measure = sum(Database[RETURN_VALUE_SUM])/sum('Digital Sales'[Shipped_Sales])*100

I think the problem is the connection (see the bottom). When I build a table for return sum and sales sum by period, it's just summing everything for the sales.

 

Any help will be greatly appriecated.

Nevermind, fixed it.    The 'Cross Section filter' relationship between 'Period Definition' and 'Year List' needed to be both ways. It defaults to Single.
