## PBI Matrix Percentage Column Subtotals and Totals Incorrect for Hierarchy

In the following matrix visual the hierarchy margin % column subtotals are summing rather than recalculating for each level in the hierarchy (margin in red should be calc'd as (7,553/42,355=17.8%) not summed from the lines in blue (31+4.2+18=53.2%).  The margin amounts for the lines in blue are correct (5,081/16,392=31%).  I am hoping this can be corrected in some way.  I have already tried disabling summation, rewriting the DAX expression using a calculated column, but not having any luck changing the percentage column subtotals in the matrix for the hierarchy .  Help is appreciated!

How are you calculating Margin?  I created a mock-up where I'm getting different results?  Try this Measure for Margin instead?

Replying to move this thread back to the top and keep it alive.  Based on what i'm seeing in your DAX code, you may need to post a sample of you dataset so we can test further...

Check out this useful guide about Totals and Power BI Visuals.  It's not uncommon that you need more control over the Matrix 'default' math.  Using 'HasOneValue' in some IF logic helps you choose how you want Detail vs. Summary rows to calculate...  I hope this helps!

I tried HASONEVALUE (using the last field in the hierarchy) and got the same result.  Any suggestions?
