Percentages in Line Chart

My line chart is measuring 3 things. I want line A to be measured as a percentage of line B. However, it is being measured as a percentage of line B and C. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi @pkumar,

Could you please provide sample data and expectation as picture? So I could quickly create sample solution for you.

Essentially I want the graph to look how it does right now, but I want the "Success" line to be a percentage and not a sum. Also, it should be a percentage of Marketo Lead ID, not a percentage of Marketo Lead ID and Activity Type (grand total).

Hi @pkumar,


You could try with calculated measure:

Success = DIVIDE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Data[Marketo Lead ID]), CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Data[Marketo Lead ID]),ALL(Data)))

As my sample: there are total 130 leads, and 5 leads in April 17, 2016, so the % = 5/150 = 3.86%. Is is correct?

For filter with anothe columns/fields, you could replace ALL(Data) method by ALLEXCEPT(Data,columnfieldInTheSlicer) or try with ALLSELECTED method.


If this works for you please accept it as solution and also like to give KUDOS.

I'm still a little confused...I'm trying to get the success percentage to be a percentage of Activity Type. So if you look at the line graph I uploaded highlighted, it should be 1701/31075 = 5.47%

Hi @pkumar,

Could you please share your sample data so i could quickly understand and solve it for you? ❤️
