## Get the value of a specific row

Hi all,

I need help here. I have a table with subtotals by month. I need to divide a specific row with the subtotal.

For denomitor, i used this formula A(D)=calculate([A],DATESMTD(Dates[MonthEnding]))

For numerator, may I know how to get the value of the specific row?

Thanks!

Best Regards,

Joey

Hi, @joeywong ;

In the image above, I don't see the 'Date' [MonthYear] column, you can try to put it in. Or try changing the formula:

``````D =
DIVIDE (
SUM ( 'Table'[Column] ),
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'Table'[Column] ),
FILTER ( ALLSELECTED ( 'Date' ), 'Date'[MonthYear] = MAX ( 'Date'[MonthYear] ) )
)
)
``````

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.

For your understanding, typically, you will use sum / max / min /  count to get values of a selected row.

``````-- Select the type of the current row
var _selT = SELECTEDVALUE(Table2[Type])

-- To get the same row amount value, you can use sum amount as below:
var _v = CALCULATE(sum(Table2[Amount]), filter(Table2, Table2[Type] = _selT))``````

Hi,

Your question is not clear.  Is the image that you have shared a Table visual that you have already created?  Share the download link of your PBI file.

Hi, @joeywong ;

If you wan get the value of specific row, you could try Sum([colum]) in measure. as follow:

``Measure = DIVIDE(SUM('Table'[Value]),CALCULATE(SUM([Value]),ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Month])))``

The final show:

Hi Yalan,

Thank you for your suggestions. However, when I incorporate the formula, the % total does not come up to 100%.

Is there anything wrong with the following formulas?

D = Divide(

sum('Table'[Column]),

Calculate(Sum('Table'[Column]),

ALLEXCEPT('Date','Date'[MonthYear])))

Thanks!
