Measure to solve wrong total (row context)

Hi

I have a table where I wish to calculate the index (this year compared to last year) for the total correctly with a measure where it returns 200 at the moment. I want the measure to return 167:

 Store Number Retail Sales Amount LCY Retail Sales Amount LCY LY Index 1 100 100 100 2 400 200 200 3 300 Total 600 300 200 (Incorrectly) - should be 167

Currently Im using the following measure which returns the above incorrect result :

``````New All Store Sales LCY Index =
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100 < 2000
&& DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100 > -100,
DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100,
BLANK ()
)``````

I tried to solved it by using this measure but get an error;

``````New All Store Sales LCY Index =
IF(HASONEFILTER('dm DimStore'[Store Number]),
IF(
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100 < 2000
&& DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100 > -100,
DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100,
BLANK ()),
0,
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100 < 2000
&& DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100 > -100,
DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100,
BLANK ()
)),
FILTER(
'dm DimStore',
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100 < 2000
&& DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100 > -100,
DIVIDE ( [Retail Sales Amount Incl VAT LCY], [New All Store Sales LCY LY] ) * 100,
BLANK ()
)))``````

I tried this measure but it returns blank in total:

New Sales L4L Index =
VAR __table =
SUMMARIZE (
'dm FactRetailSales',
'dm DimStore'[Store Number],
"__value",
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
DIVIDE ( [New L4L Sales LCY], [New L4L Sales LY LCY] ) * 100 < 2000
&& DIVIDE ( [New L4L Sales LCY], [New L4L Sales LY LCY] ) * 100 > -100, DIVIDE ( [New L4L Sales LCY], [New L4L Sales LY LCY] ) * 100,
BLANK ()
)
)
RETURN
IF (
HASONEVALUE ( 'dm DimStore'[Store Number] ),
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
DIVIDE ( [New L4L Sales LCY], [New L4L Sales LY LCY] ) * 100 < 2000
&& DIVIDE ( [New L4L Sales LCY], [New L4L Sales LY LCY] ) * 100 > -100, DIVIDE ( [New L4L Sales LCY], [New L4L Sales LY LCY] ) * 100,
BLANK ()
),
SUMX ( __table, [__value] )
)

HI @MIkkelHyldig,

According to your description, it sounds like a common measure total level calculation issue. You can refer to Greg's blog to know how to handle this scenario:
