Measure doesn't add up

Hi,

 

I have this measure -> GP = - 1800 + SUM(vw_PivotVisitsInvoiced[Income Generated])

 

Calc Column -> Income Generated = vw_PivotVisitsInvoiced[Visits_NoHrs] * 6.25

 

Why is my total below not right?

 

Thanks,

 

Gerry

Your GP is a measure. At the grand total, it will just sum all data together first, then minus 1800. If you want your expression be evaluated on each row, you should use SUMX().

 

GP =SUMX(vw_PivotVisitsInvoiced,vw_PivotVisitsInvoiced[Income Generated]-1800)

 

See sample below:

what are you expecting the number to be and why is it wrong? Your snip has no context for us to determine the source of the error.

Hi kcantor,

 

Was hoping the total of GP, €3157.81 would be -€16642.2 (Ths sum of the GP totals)

Hi Simon,

 

Thanks very much.

 

See the GP column. 1800 is subtracted from Income Generated each week. (The total of -1000 is correct)

How would I show GP to start at -1800 & add Income Generated to it each week.

 

So in attched,

I would like to see:

 

Wk 10 GP = -1712.5

Wk 11 GP = - 1603.12 ( - 1712.5 +109.38)

Wk 12 GP = - 1499.99 ( - 1603.12 + 103.13)
