Find the sum of a created measure

I created a measure that is a time converted to number of minutes. However, when trying to find the total sum of these minutes, I am unable to locate the column in the table to create the formula. Would it be possible to find the sum of the measure in the table? 

 

Thanks

You would have to apply the same filters to the measure

 

so you would do CALCULATE( SUMX('Table Name',[Measure Name]),Filter 1,Filter2...etc)

Hi,

 

you can try:

 SUMX('Table Name',[Measure Name])

Thank you! Would you happen to know why the value calculated by SUMX would be greater than the total value calculated under the table? 

Without having access to the PBIX i could only guess, how much greater is it? are there any filters on the table or slicers that only interact with that visual?

It's a significant amount greater. There are filters applied to the table, so a better question would be would it be possible to use the total amount given at the bottom of the table in formulas?
