## Sum a dynamic measure based on another column, similar to ForEach

Hello,

I have a table that outputs like this:

I need to sum the "2018 Added Awards" column, based on the date 2018.
400+732 = 1132
This SUM is based on the "ProgID A" column, and ProgID A is controlled by a slicer. As soon as I remove ProgID A, I get the below result. I need to add 6 FOREACH ProgID A. Isn't there a way to do this? These are all measures.

Thanks,

Ashley

I'm not completely certain but this looks like a measure totals problem. Very common. See my post about it here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/DAX-Commands-and-Tips/Dealing-with-Measure-Totals/td-p/63376

Also, this Quick Measure, Measure Totals, The Final Word should get you what you need:

Hi @Greg_Deckler,

This is a perfect solution, I had no issues implementing it into my project. Now, I look forward to diving in to it until I can understand how it works 🙂

Your screenshots were also helpful, they matched mine so I knew we were on the right track.

Cheers,

Ashley
