Matrix total calculation

Hi everyone,

I've been struggling to find a way to calculate the total of a matrix.

I'm trying to divide the sum total of the column by 15. 

Is there a way to do that? 

Like in excel, we can just sum up the table and divide it by any numbers, but I can't do it in power bi

Hi @mavdom18 ,

In Power BI, the Total row can't be customized. If you want to get the expected result, you need to create a new table contains value "Enterprise" and define its value. Here's my solution:

1.Create a new table. Sort LOB by Index column.

Create relationship between the two tables with LOB column.

2.Create three measures.

HC =
IF (
    SUM ( 'Table'[HC] ) <> BLANK (),
    SUM ( 'Table'[HC] ),
    SUMX ( ALL ( 'Table' ), 'Table'[HC] ) / 15
)
Email% =
IF (
    MAX ( 'Table'[Email%] ) <> BLANK (),
    MAX ( 'Table'[Email%] ),
    AVERAGEX ( ALL ( 'Table' ), 'Table'[Email%] )
)
Voice% =
IF (
    MAX ( 'Table'[Voice%] ) <> BLANK (),
    MAX ( 'Table'[Voice%] ),
    AVERAGEX ( ALL ( 'Table' ), 'Table'[Voice%] )
)

Get the result:

@mavdom18 , Not very clear

 

example is

divide( calculate(sum(Table[HC]), allselected() ), 15)

Apologies, I just realized that the image is confusing. To give more context, enterprise is my grand total. Instead of it being just the sum of all the lob combined, I want it to be divided by 15. However, the problem is that it's not as easy as doing it in excel where I can just edit the total formula to be divided by 15.

 

  • What I wanted to do is to make a calculation in my matrix total so that it sums up all the lob and then divide it by 15.
