Calculation Help!

Hi all,


I'm new to Power BI and I'm trying to get the syntax right for the below calculation. For whatever reason, Power BI is not letting me reference previous calculated fields I have created either when I create a new column or measure, so I am stuck with stuffing all of the filters in this equation. Thanks and please let me know if you have any ideas! This is giving me errors on Curr_Amt_Fin and Fin_Prod_ID for the syntax there.


CALCULATE(SUM('Extension Data Query'[Interest Income]),'Extension Data Query'[Fin_Prod_ID] = "ZRCONT", 'Extension Data Query'[UIID_Status] = "A")*12/ (SUM('Extension Data Query'[Curr_Amt_Fin],'Extension Data Query'[Fin_Prod_ID] = "ZRCONT")

Hi @NCPowerBI ,

I think you need this:

    SUM ( 'Extension Data Query'[Interest Income] ),
    'Extension Data Query'[Fin_Prod_ID] = "ZRCONT",
    'Extension Data Query'[UIID_Status] = "A"
) * 12
        SUM ( 'Extension Data Query'[Curr_Amt_Fin] ),
        'Extension Data Query'[Fin_Prod_ID] = "ZRCONT"


If this answer solves your problem, give it a thumbs up and mark it as an accepted solution so the others would find what they need easier.
