Hi @ardianfirman06 ,

According to your description You want to create a random sample of the aggregated value(Volume: 0-5%) grouped by a certain column.Right?

Here are the steps you can follow:

(1)This is my test data:

(2)If you want to create a random sample in visual, you can create a measure:

ran_value = SUM(Table1[value])*RAND()*5/100

Then you can put it in your visual like this:

If you don’t want to have the “Total”, you can close it in Format Pane.

You can click

vyangliumsft_3-1661495029660.png

 to recalculate the value of this measure to achieve a random sample.

(3)If you want to create a random sample in table, you can click “new table”.

Table = SELECTCOLUMNS( SUMMARIZE('Table1','Table1'[name],"Sum Value",SUM(Table1[value])) , "name",[name],"Ran Value",[Sum Value] * RAND()*5/100)

Then you can click

to recalculate the table to achieve a random sample, like this:

vyangliumsft_6-1661495029663.png

If this solution is different from your needs, can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a ample .pbix file after removing sensitive data. We can better understand the problem and help you.

Thank you for this. this is really help.

 

is there any function that we can use to keep the sample ? so the table of sampling wont changed on every running and increase the sample if there is additional data ingested to the source table.
