## Problem with SUM

HI, i have a formula who works like this:

TH Total Unit Margin = CALCULATE(SUM('BI Analysis'[Amount])/SUM('BI Analysis'[Qtty]),YEAR('BI Analysis'[DATE RECORD])>2017,'Type of Data'[TYPE] = "Result")

The problem is that i have some products that makes SUM('BI Analysis'[Qtty]) zero. So if i filter for this products the value is inifinity.
How can I prevent to appear that value?

Thanks

Use the DIVIDE function, it accounts for a divide by zero error

You can use an IF statement.

```TH Total Unit Margin =
IF (
SUM ( 'BI Analysis'[Qtty] ) = 0,
BLANK (),
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'BI Analysis'[Amount] ) / SUM ( 'BI Analysis'[Qtty] ),
YEAR ( 'BI Analysis'[DATE RECORD] ) > 2017,
'Type of Data'[TYPE] = "Result"
)
)```
