DAX Measure Total Wrong

Hi All,

I'm struggling to get the  grand total right, its computing fine on row by row basis but the grand total show exponential large amount. 

The last reutn statement will check if the row contains unique value and I need to add somehting in there to tell sum the columns after the conversion to currency is done.

 

Test USDRR = 
VAR gggest = SUMX ( 'Policy (measures)', [Gross] )

  VAR AggPremum =

 SUMX(
ADDCOLUMNS (
            SUMMARIZE (
                'Pol (measures)',
                'Pol (measures)'[Reporting Currency],
                'Pol (measures)'[Policy ID]
            ),
            "@ToUSDRates",
                IF (
                    ISBLANK (
                        LOOKUPVALUE (
                            'Exchange Rate'[ExchangeRate Factor],
                            'Exchange Rate'[Currency From], 'Pol (measures)'[Reporting Currency],
                            'Exchange Rate'[Currency To], "USD"
                        )
                    ),
                    1,
                    LOOKUPVALUE (
                        'Exchange Rate'[ExchangeRate Factor],
                        'Exchange Rate'[Currency From], 'Pol (measures)'[Reporting Currency],
                        'Exchange Rate'[Currency To], "USD"
                    )
                ),
                 "@AmountinSett", gggest
     )
 , [@AmountinSett] * [@ToUSDRates]

)

RETURN 

 IF(HASONEVALUE('Pol (measures)'[Policy ID]), AggPremum, ???? ( How to Get 
  Total Amount )

Hi,

I am not sure how your desired visualization looks like, but please try writing two measures like below and check if it suits your requirement.

 

Test USDRR =
VAR gggest =
    SUMX ( 'Policy (measures)', [Gross] )
VAR AggPremum =
    SUMX (
        ADDCOLUMNS (
            SUMMARIZE (
                'Pol (measures)',
                'Pol (measures)'[Reporting Currency],
                'Pol (measures)'[Policy ID]
            ),
            "@ToUSDRates",
                IF (
                    ISBLANK (
                        LOOKUPVALUE (
                            'Exchange Rate'[ExchangeRate Factor],
                            'Exchange Rate'[Currency From], 'Pol (measures)'[Reporting Currency],
                            'Exchange Rate'[Currency To], "USD"
                        )
                    ),
                    1,
                    LOOKUPVALUE (
                        'Exchange Rate'[ExchangeRate Factor],
                        'Exchange Rate'[Currency From], 'Pol (measures)'[Reporting Currency],
                        'Exchange Rate'[Currency To], "USD"
                    )
                ),
            "@AmountinSett", gggest
        ),
        [@AmountinSett] * [@ToUSDRates]
    )
RETURN
    AggPremum

 

Test USDRR Total Fix measure =
SUMX ( 'Policy (measures)', [Test USDRR] )

Hi Jihwan,

 

I created an additional measure 

Test USDRR Total Fix measure =
SUMX ( 'Policy (measures)', [Test USDRR] )

 but this is causing perfomrace issue , and sometimes prompting me to add less columns values/ filter.

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback.

I am not sure how your Policy(measures) table looks like, but please try writing DAX measure something like below. Or, please share your sample pbix file's link, and then I can try to look into it to come up with a more accurate solution.

 

Test USDRR Total Fix measure =
SUMX (
    DISTINCT ( 'Policy (measures)'[Your desired column that is in the visualization] ),
    [Test USDRR]
)

Hi Greg,

I read thorugh your documnets around the issue on the measures totals, I tried to used your techinique but still no luck.

Test USDRR = 
VAR gggest =
    SUMX (
        'Pol (measures) (measures)',

    )
VAR AggPremum =
    SUMX(
