Power BI Total Incorrect

Hi,

I created a measure if actual isblank, then use LBE. but the total is incorrect. 

LBEorACT = if (ISBLANK(sum(table1[Actual])),sum(table2[LBE]),sum(table1[Actual])).
The result seems correct, except for the total.
 
I have 3 tables. table 1 contains actual, table 2 contains LBE, table 3 is calendar

 

example:

Month        Actual    LBE  LBEorAct   CumAct  CumLBEorAct

Jan                10          20            10              10            10

Feb                             20             20

Mar                            20             20

Apr                             20             20

Total              10         80              20===> this should be 70

tried, but didnt work. got the same result.

I have a table for actuals, another for LBE. all I want is a table to show LBEorActual 

For example, if there is actual$ for Jan only, then Feb-Dec use LBE$. So I can have Full Year Forecast of Actual and LBE.

 

Month        Actual    LBE  LBEorAct   CumAct  CumLBEorAct

Jan                10          20            10              10            10

Feb                             20             20

Mar                            20             20

Apr                             20             20

Total              10         80              20===> this should be 70

Can you please share your PBI file?

You are having an issue with the total because the formula is not accounting for the context of the calculation.

The missing part here is the aggregation over time  so you may need TOTALYTD() :

 

LBEorACT =
IF(
ISBLANK(SUM(table1[Actual])),
TOTALYTD(SUM(table2[LBE]), 'table3'[Date]),
TOTALYTD(SUM(table1[Actual]), 'table3'[Date])
)

Can you also share your PBI file to have more info about your situation ?
