1.6%

C

-0.10%

-0.1%

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Be aware that the calculations in PBI don't work in the same way as in Excel, you need to create a calculated measure and not a column rewrite your formula to a measure with the following code:

 

% Calculation =SUM(Table[pqr]) / SUM(Table[mnp])

 

Then format as %.
