Multiplying Percentage with Total

Hi Everyone,


I'm semi-new to PBI with no formal training or structured course-taking. I'm sort of learning on the job. 


I need help with the following scenario. I have sales data with hours and dollar amount values. I was able to calculate the % of hours vs total sales but I'm not able to calculate the $$ value of those hours versus total sales. I tried multiplying the % dax measure with the measure of total sales but it didn't work, it skipped a couple of rows and only gave me the value of 1 row. 


Sample Data: the last column is what i'm trying to achieve. multiply the allocation of horus for each row by the total value 


Project NameUserHoursValueAllocation of HoursValue Allocation
MercuryJohn Doe3030%                 3,000.00
 James Smith3030%                 3,000.00

 Total10   10,000.00100%               10,000.00

Try these measures:


Total Hours = SUM ( Table1[Hours] )
Total Value = SUM ( Table1[Value] )
Allocation of Hours = 
VAR vNumerator = [Total Hours]
VAR vDenominator =
        [Total Hours],
        ALLSELECTED ( Table1 ),
        VALUES ( Table1[Project Name] )
VAR vResult =
    DIVIDE ( vNumerator, vDenominator )
Value Allocation = 
VAR vValue =
        [Total Value],
        ALLSELECTED ( Table1 ),
        VALUES ( Table1[Project Name] )
VAR vFactor = [Allocation of Hours]
VAR vResult = vValue * vFactor
