## DAX help

why does this measure not work?

penetration = divide(CALCULATE(sum(Detail[Sales New Used]),Detail[Sales New Used]="New"),SUM('Dealer Summary'[Regs]))

sales new used needs to be divided by Regs but only the 'new' must be totaled and divided.

because denominatordenominator is 0.

you can use DIVIDE

Result = DIVIDE([count],[Regs2])

Hi @Anonymous ,

Might because of the denominator. Try:

``penetration = divide(CALCULATE(sum(Detail[Sales New Used]),Detail[Sales New Used]="New"),Calculate(SUM('Dealer Summary'[Regs]),All('Dealer Summary'))``

If it doesn't work, please show some sample data and expected result.

Best Regards,

Jay

This is the part of my measure which  doesnt work

Part 1 = Calculate(SUM('Detail'[Sales New Used]),('Detail'[Sales New Used]="New")
what i need this to do is filter all the New deals and count them up for each business area to then be divided by the RE
Below is all the data required for this measure :

 Business area REGS Sales new used penetration A 200 New (Count of new) ‘New’/REGS B 300 New C 453 New A 200 Used B 234 Used C 754 New A 768 New

I suggest you check regs and count. You mean the business area have the results for regs and count, but result is infinity?

maybe you can try to saparate the DAX to two parts and check which part didn't return the expected result.

CALCULATE(sum(Detail[Sales New Used]),Detail[Sales New Used]="New")

SUM('Dealer Summary'[Regs])
