Show the Average Total for Avg calculation and Sum Total for Sum calculation in Grand total

Hello PBI folks,

 

How do i make the Avg Daily Rate Grand Total (red box) similar to the one in Tableau (green box) where it shows the Grand Avg for the Avg Daily Rate?

Hi @cruzp  The measure is :

fixed AVG = AVERAGEX(SUMMARIZE(FACT_TIME_SHEET,'DIM_EMPLOYEE'[EMPLOYEE_BK],'FACT_TIME_SHEET'[BILLING_CURRENCY]),[Avg Daily Rate])
I used a method of Goodly (the second tutorial that I linked in my first response)
 The fixed pbix is attached

Can't seem to make it work. Any chance you can assist on the calculation?

Can't seem to make it work as I tried following the youtube tutorials. Any chance you can assist on the calculation?

Hi @cruzp 
Try to use averagex as @audreygerred  suggested.
To assist more I need data to work

Please provide sample data that covers your issue or question completely, in a usable format (not as a screenshot).

I saw that the BILLING CURRENCY is included in the formula. What if i wanted to add a new descriptive field next to it? 


does it mean that any fields that I would add in the granularity of the table should be added in the calculation? @Ritaf1983 

Hi @cruzp 
Yep, with this formula you are creating a "virtual table" and then summarizing it (similar to the pivot logic of Excel).
