Dividing with a count

Hi,

 

I have a column A which has an text data and column B which has Values. I want to check for a period of time the output.

 

eg - Delivery(value)/box(count) = Sum of column B / Count of Column A. In the data table what is happening is that it is taking the count as 1 and dividing with the value of column B. Hence the row wise result is coming same as the value of column B. I need an output which will calculate for a span of time, say if I take April and May and the delivery value is 40 and 60 resp. and the count is 3 & 2 resp. Then the output should show me 100/5 = 20. But currently as per the below calculation it is giving me an output 100.

= CALCULATE(SUM('[Table Name]'[Delivery])/DISTINCTCOUNT('[Table Name'[Box]))

Hi @amit_wairkar ,

Please try to update the formula of your measure as below and check whether it can get your expected result.

Measure = 
VAR _sumofdelivery =
    CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Delivery] ), ALLSELECTED ( 'Table' ) )
VAR _countofbox =
    CALCULATE ( DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[Box] ), ALLSELECTED ( 'Table' ) )
RETURN
    DIVIDE ( _sumofdelivery, _countofbox, 0 )

If the above one still can't get the correct result, please provide some sample data with Text format and some screenshots that how the visual looks like when you applied the measure.... Thank you.

Best Regards

@amit_wairkar 

maybe try

SUM('[Table Name]'[Delivery])/DISTINCTCOUNT('[Table Name'[Box]
