Measure totals do not return expected values

Hi All,

 

I've a simple measure with 2 variables that calculate the sum/difference of columns from multiple tables and result is set to return min of these 2 variables, It displyed correctly in the table but the total does not show the expected value. 

 

Current output : Min (A+B, C+D) i.e., Min (6,8) = 6

Expected output : Sum of MinResult (1+1) = 2

 

I need the sum of the final MinResult as in table below

 

TIA, for your help

 

For Ex: 

 

 

# MinResult = 
VAR A+B = SUM(Table1[A])+SUM('Table2'[B])
VAR C+D = SUM(Table1[C])+SUM('Table2'[D])
VAR Result = 
    (
        MIN ( (A+B), (C+D))
    )
    Return Result

 

 

ABCDA+BC+DPseudo valueCountryMin Result (A+B , C+D)
012315US1US1
340171US2US1

Hi, @Anonymous 

 

Based on your description, I created data to reproduce your scenario.

You may create three measures as follows.

AB = SUM('Table'[A])+SUM('Table'[B])

CD = SUM('Table'[C])+SUM('Table'[D])

MinResult = 
SUMX(
    'Table',
    CALCULATE(MIN([AB],[CD]))
)

 

Result:

I'll try to explain the issue better this time

 

I've a measure to return min of two variables. So, let's say for a given country, i have 2 entries, 1 for each state as below. As expected, measure returns the min values for each state (see below). Now, when i show the total value for column - 'Min value' it is showing 5 instead i.e., it is adding the values for B (5) and comparing it with A (6) and returning the minimum value of the total

 

ABStateCountryMin value of A,B 
12TxUS1 
53CaUS3 
   Total5 

 

 

 

Try like

sumx(summarize(table,table[state],table[country], "_min",min(table[A],table[B])),[_min])

i couldn't upload the pic. I am using the same table as mentioned above

"The syntax for 'Table' is incorrect. (DAX(sumx(summarize (Table,'Table'[State],Table[Country], "_min",min(Table[A],Table[B])) ,[_min])))."
