## Division in Model

I have created a new measure like this:

ArchiveTotal = SUMX(Summaries, Summaries[FreeAmount] + Summaries[UsedAmount])

Now I want to calc the percentage of FreeAmount and UsedAmount over ArchiveTotal.
All I am trying is: FreeAmount / ArchiveTotal * 100. But when I specify DIVIDE function for new measure all I get is ArchiveTotal, two two other columns are not even available. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Using your existing measure [ArchiveTotal]:

``````NewMeasure =
VAR usedAmount_ = SUM(Summaries[UsedAmount])
RETURN
DIVIDE(usedAmount_, [ArchiveTotal])``````

Hi @Markzolotoy ,

Column names alone cannot be displayed in the measure, you need to bring the column names into the formula, you can try the following code:

_ FreeAmount=divide(sum(Summaries[FreeAmount]),[ArchiveTotal])

_ UsedAmount=divide(sum(Summaries[UsedAmount]),[ArchiveTotal])

@AlB Here is my table:

I want to create a new measure = UsedAmount * 100 / ArchiveTotal

where ArchiveTotal =

ArchiveTotal = SUMX(Summaries, Summaries[FreeAmount] + Summaries[UsedAmount])

When I use DIVIDE function intellisense shows ArchiveTotal, but not other numeric columns.

What do you mean by "two other columns are not even available"

Can you show the exact code you are using to calculate the percentages? And the result you are getting vs the desired one?

Showing a sample of the table(s) would also help
