Divide every row in a Matrix by a static calculated row

I am not entirely sure how to ask this question, but I will give it my best shot.  I am fairly new to Power BI, but worked in other data modeling/reporting systems. 

 

We have found that income statments are not easy in Power BI, but we have managed a work-around with the exception of one area.  We need to get the percentage of each row against Revenue.  So, for example, every row in the matrix below should divide against the highlighted revenue value.  However, nothing we have tried will make that figure static down the rows and as a result, the percentages get wacky.

The model looks as follows:

SMYAguirre_1-1668969217418.png

 

We have searched the internet for solutions, tried every type of measure we could find, attemped a few creative measures of our own, created a grouped "revenue only" table using a primary key to sum those totals in measures.  

Any help is greatly appreciated.  Until this is resolved, these reports are being manually distributed to the sales team.

Hi @SMYAguirre ,

 

Please try:

Measure =
VAR _a =
    SUM ( TransactionsAgg[GLTotalAmount_Rev] )
VAR _b =
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( TransactionsAgg[GLTotalAmount_Rev] ),
        FILTER ( ALL ( '..Report Structure' ), [GL Category] = "Revenue" ),
        REMOVEFILTERS (
            TransactionsAgg[ChartOfAccounts.GL Sub Category],
            TransactionsAgg[ChartOfAccounts.GL_Code_Desc]
        )
    )
RETURN
    DIVIDE ( _a, _b )

Final output:

Hi @SMYAguirre ,

 

What is your measure TransactionsAgg[GLTotalAmount_Rev]? What does your data look like? Sorry for that the information you have provided is not making the problem clear to me. Can you please share more details to help us clarify your scenario?

Please provide me with more details about your table and your problem or share me with your pbix file after removing sensitive data.

I apologize that I was not clear.  That "TransactionsAgg[GLTotalAmount_Rev]" is the "Value" column you see in the matrix.  I have modified the data and the report so I could share pbix file and the matrix in question.  Please see the link below:

The problem I am having is that while the measure you provided works at the top level, it does not work for the levels beneath (highlighted in screen shot below):

I hope this makes things more clear.  Thank you!

Thank you. This partially worked, but not completely.

I used: 

Measure = DIVIDE(TransactionsAgg[GLTotalAmount_Rev]),CALCULATE(SUM(TransactionsAgg[GLTotalAmount_Rev]), FILTER(ALL(TransactionsAgg),[GL Category]="Revenue")))


So this is dividing the sum of GLTotalAmount by the sum of GLTotalAmount where the GL Category = Revenue, correct? That makes sense, but this is the result.

The levels below were not populated.  Is there a way to include the lowest level in that measure? 

Thank you again!!

Hi @SMYAguirre ,

 

Based on your description, I have created a simple sample:

vjianbolimsft_0-1668996373845.png

Please try:

 

Measure = DIVIDE(SUM('Table'[Value]),CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Value]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),[GL Category]="Revenue")))

 

Final output:
