## 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 Name User Hours Value Allocation of Hours Value Allocation Mercury John Doe 3 0 30% 3,000.00 James Smith 3 0 30% 3,000.00 Jane Doe 4 10,000.00 40% 4,000.00 Total 10 10,000.00 100% 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 =
CALCULATE (
[Total Hours],
ALLSELECTED ( Table1 ),
VALUES ( Table1[Project Name] )
)
VAR vResult =
DIVIDE ( vNumerator, vDenominator )
RETURN
vResult
Value Allocation =
VAR vValue =
CALCULATE (
[Total Value],
ALLSELECTED ( Table1 ),
VALUES ( Table1[Project Name] )
)
VAR vFactor = [Allocation of Hours]
VAR vResult = vValue * vFactor
RETURN
vResult
