Hello I need help, where my measure is not summing properly.
Here I have employment by industry code. I have a measure for employment in a particular segment of the industry, as well as the total employment in the industry.
I have the % of employment in segment as the total and then apply this to another employment figure. To derive a final employment estimate titled new employment * employment share.
However my measure at 184.3k does not sum correctly. It should sum all of those in the last column which is around 2.3m. The issue is that its making the calculation on the totals rather than the values in the columns.
I don’t know if this requires me to put in sumx somewhere. I appreciate any of your help.

Hello @CallumMurfet !
You are correct in thinking you have to use a SUMX.
Try adding a
Measure = SUMX('Table', [new employment] * [employment share] )
as sumx calculates each row
I think see the issue in that its now summing the employment % shares first and then applying that to the sum of new employment. , which is then increasing the value to 26m
Yes the visible rows are there, but it seems to be summing other values which dont appear in the column in the table, but make up the total.
