DAX calculation from two "sub" - tables

"C:\Users\priya\OneDrive\Sample File.pbix" 

 

Hello,

 

I am trying to create a variable - 2600PPM which is a basically a division from two sub tables i created. I used the following DAX command - 

2600 PPM = SUM('VP-Warehouse Exp'[2600CC Exp])/SUM(Mileage[2600 Series])
 
But it is not giving me a correct answer.
Please advice.
Thank you!

Hi @mallap849 

 

If you cannot get @amitchandak's to work, try to break it down one step further by creating two independent sum measures, followed by the divide.  For example:

 

1. Sum 1 = SUM ( Table1[Column] ) 

2. Sum 2 = SUM ( Table2[Column] )

3. Divide = DIVIDE ( [Measure 1] , [Measure 2] , 0 ) 

 

Your output should be like below:

Importantly, ensure your column format is value (i.e. Whole Number / Decimal).

 

Hope this helps.

@mallap849 , The link you posted above will not work.

 

Yoir calculation should work across common dimesion

2600 PPM = Divide(SUM('VP-Warehouse Exp'[2600CC Exp]),SUM(Mileage[2600 Series]) )

 

 

If this does not help
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

"C:\Users\priya\OneDrive\Sample File.pbix" 

 

Hi @amitchandak ,

I have tried to reattach the file and I used the formula - 

PPM 2600 = DIVIDE(SUM('Expense'[2600cc Exp]),SUM('Car Mileage Data'[2600 Series]))
The syntax does not give an error but you can see that the value is not correct.
 
Please let me know.
 
Regards,
Priyanka
