It seems like PowerBI simply don't want to work

Hi everyone


I've been having a problem that I can't solve (and yes, I've already asked Chat GTP).


My problem is the following:


I have this DAX formula:




Ventas con Otros =

VAR PorcSales = [TotalSales] * 0.01

//I create a summarize the table with customers and the their total sales
VAR SumTable =
SUMMARIZE(SALES, 'MY TABLE'[NAME], "CustomerSales", [TotalSales]

//Then I use a filter to select only those customers whose purchases is below the 1% of Total Sales.
VAR FilterSumTable =
FILTER(SumTable , [CustomerSales] < PorcSales )

VAR TotalOthers=

VAR SelectOthers = SELECTEDVALUE('MY TABLE'[NAME]) = "Others"







What I want to achieve is to make a pie graf that shows every single customer whose purchases represent more than 1% of the total sales, the rest I want to group them under the name "others" and assign them the remaining value.


If I try to do a table with that information, I get this:

As you may see, there is no "Other" row.


How ever, if i replace the variable with any value then yes it works.

For Example:



Then Power BI "decide" to work:

If anybody can help me, I really appreciate it
