Hi, can you help with one issue in PowerBi i create a report and i this report i see the scrap, and total cost of production, i use the next dax for calculate the cost of production

= SUMX(lizventas,lizventas[Quantity Invoiced] * RELATED(COSTO[Cost] ))

but when Bi make the operation the result is worng for example.

in all rows the result is worng, for example

first row

360 * 36.27 = 13,056.83

So, anyway. everything is saying that you have a round-problem

13056.83/360 = 36.269

so, try to click left mouse on your field Cost then go to Modelling pane or Column tools pane (in the new version of pbi desktop) and set number of decimal as 3

Hi,

The "error" seems a rounding problem.

I suggest you use the same precision in your all numbers to see the exact value.
