## DAX measure for division (Profit and Loss)

Budget Variance % =
IF(
[Financial value Var] < 0 && (ISBLANK([Financial Value2]) || [Financial Value2] = 0),
0,
DIVIDE([Financial value Var], [Financial Value2], 0)
)
This is the measure I have created for calculating Variance and I am trying to get the result as 0 if the numerator value is negative and it is divided by a blank value/0 the result should be 0.

The highlighted value should be 0 in this case, how can I modify my measure to reflect 0 if the result is a positive/negative undefined exponential number in percentage?

Hi,

Your dax measure looks okay to me. are you passing the right measures? if yes, try this workaround:

Budget Variance % =
VAR varResult =
IF(
[Financial value Var] < 0 && (ISBLANK([Financial Value2]) || [Financial Value2] = 0),
0,
DIVIDE([Financial value Var], [Financial Value2], 0)
)
RETURN
IF(
ABS(varResult) > 1E10 || ABS(varResult) < 1E-10,
0,
varResult
)

ABS(varResult) > 1E10 || ABS(varResult) < 1E-10: This checks if the absolute value of varResult is greater than 10^{10} (a very large number) or less than 10^{-10} (a very small number). change the exponent value accordingly.

Hi,

This simplified measure should work

``Budget Variance % = IF([Financial value Var] < 0,0,DIVIDE([Financial value Var], [Financial Value2],0))``

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Thanks for the solution @Ashish_Mathur  and @Shravan133  offered, and i want to offer some more information for user to refer to.

hello @Pooja_Dasani_98 ,

Please check that if your data type of the [Financial Value2] measure is Decimal number, but you don't keep one or two decimal places, then it will dispaly 0,  but in fact, there are numbers after the decimal point, in this situation , it will return the value, you can refer my sample.

Best Regards!
