SUM / SUMX Column

I'm working with a combined table - Current ERP data + Historical data (.xlsx) merged by query.

I used the following formula to create a custom column for weight (also to get rid of the "-") 

My current data turns out fine 2019, 2020 but within the historical data the weight values of identical rows end up summarized.

Using SUMX leaves me with the following error message:

Any thoughts on how to solve this?

Hi @fbron ,

 

Try creating a measure rather than a column.

 

If this helps please give Kudos and mark it as a Solution! 🙂

Hi @fbron ,

 

SUMX is an aggregator calculation the first parameter is a table and the second the calculation you need. So your measure needs to be something similar to:

 

SUMX(Table;SUM(Table[Weight))

 

If you are just trying to replaced the negative to positives have you tried the ABS formula?

I did manage to get this done with a measure, problem is that eventually I'm in need of a running total for the weight column. 

Something like this:

As far as I know I'm in need of a column to get to that running total, tried it with the (working) measure but couldnt get it done.

Calculating running total in a measure is slightly different to a column.
