## How to control the slicers?

I have a simple data which has two columns, category and amount

CategoryAmount

 A 787 B 7847 C 3949 A 9898 C 598590 B 34 A 24 B 454 C 4545 A 4545

When I tried to make a table and convert my amount into percentage

What do I want? If I place a filter for a category, I don't want the fields to change when I exclude a  category

For example, if I exclude category A, the percentages should not change for other categories

In that case, I need an output

Category B = 1.32 %, Category = 96.26%

However, I am getting the below output

Is it possible? can anyone advise? I don't want to change the value for a particular category if I exclude any of the categories.

Please advise

As you've noted, the built-in "Percent of grand total" calculation calculates the total based on the overall filter context of the visual (using ALLSELECTED in the DAX query generated).

To calculate % of total for all Categories including those not displayed, you will need to create explicit measures and use REMOVEFILTERS or ALL.

I recommend creating:

Amount Sum =
SUM ( YourTable[Amount] )
Amount % of total =
DIVIDE (
[Amount Sum],
CALCULATE (
[Amount Sum],
REMOVEFILTERS ( YourTable[Category] )
)
)

(applying a percentage format to the second measure).

Does this work for you?

Try this:

%GT Amount =
VAR _A =
SUM ( 'Table'[Amount] )
VAR _B =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Amount] ), REMOVEFILTERS ( 'Table'[Category] ) )
RETURN
_A / _B

output:
