How to making Area chart with DAX in Power BI


I want to make Area chart in Power BI report, x-axis will be daily date in the year and y-axis will be percentage of some data. I have 2 data table, 1st table contain number/day/person and daily date, 2nd table contain number/calendar week.


I use measure to calculated in percentage compare to weekly number.

formula is: Measure = AVERAGEX(Sheet1, 'Sheet1'[number] / RELATED( 'Sheet2'[weekly number])).

But I found that number in the cart is lower than actual.


Do you have any ideas to fix this.


Thanks a lot

Hi v-tangjie-msft,


The logic behide is I want to design utilization chart in Power BI. I already have hours input like an Actual number.xlsx (This Number column represent hours) file


But for utilization I need "hours/avaiable time" and change to percentage. So, I design to input avaiable time in weekly as Weekly number.xlsx file


Also I want to plot Target of hours in this chart too as column Target Number in Weekly number.xlsx file


For Alldate.xlsx I just have it for link table from Week to Day


If you are not understand please tell me


Best regard and thankyou to helping me,

Hi @PSDuke ,


Please try this measure:

Measure = AVERAGEX(
ALLSELECTED(Sheet1), 'Sheet1'[number] / RELATED( 'Sheet2'[weekly number])

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. Thank you.
