% Percentage question with division for a dashboard with 2 columns

Hi,

Below are 2 snapshots (My dashboard, and my columns that make up the dashboard)   The Vendor % (Vendors Divided by Total Workers) is correct for all the rows except for "B. Mary"  "C Drew" "D Dave" "E. Willie" and "F. Sam".  For example "B. Mary" the % should be %.74 and not 2.95      

Is there a way to do this in Power BI ?   Any help would make my Wknd.

Thank you

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Is your "Vendor %" a column rather than a measure? If so, you need to create a measure for it. You can use the following measure.

Vendor % Measure = DIVIDE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Vendors] ), SUM ( 'Table'[Total Workers] ) )
