## Power BI visual substracting total negative numbers instead of summing up

Hi,

Hope someone can share some clarity on whats going on in my Power BI visual.

I have a column with amount which also concerns negative numbers.

When Power BI is summing up the total of negative numbers, it basically substract the amount.

See example below. -534,61 - -534,61 = 0. Instead it substract the amount to -1069,22.

The strange thing is that in another filtering the summed total is showing correct:

Wondering what is going on here. Does Power BI not recognize negative numbers only when summing up?

@Lori001 , I both case power bi is adding and doing the sum correctly. Because in second there few positive negatives, the sum is going down

In the first case both are negative, so it correct

-1 + -1  = -2

-1 + 1 =0
