## How to make value in measure constant

I have a measure that calculates forecasted amount.

``````Forecasted Amount = VAR percentage = Divide(SUM('Credit Memo + Invoice'[Amount]), calculate(SUM('Credit Memo + Invoice'[Amount]), allselected()) ) RETURN
SUM('Forecast Totals (GS)'[Forecast])* percentage``````

In a table it looks like this:

As you can see on May we have the value 329.08, however, when I add a filter on May I get the total value.

How can I make sure that this doesn't change and that it display 329.08 like before the filter?

Hi @Niels_T ,

Please update the formula of your measure [Forecasted Amount] as below and check whether it can get the correct result...

 Forecasted Amount =VAR percentage =    DIVIDE (        SUM ( 'Credit Memo + Invoice'[Amount] ),        CALCULATE (            SUM ( 'Credit Memo + Invoice'[Amount] ),            ALL ( 'Credit Memo + Invoice' )        )    )RETURN    SUM ( 'Forecast Totals (GS)'[Forecast] ) * percentage

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in the table 'Credit Memo + Invoice' and 'Forecast Totals (GS)(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.
