Table grand total issue (division generates avg total and not a sum)

Hi All

 

When I create a measure that calculates a division ("/") between two different numbers and I place it on a Table, I get the average of each result in the Grand Total row.

If I use the +,- or * signs Power Bi will calculate a sum in the total instead.

Can I get this with a divison as well?

 

My dax is: 

My new measure = SUM('CUBE'[column A])/[Measure 1])

FYI: Measure1 is only a "distinct count"

 

Example of what Power Bi does:

CitiesMy Measure
Paris22.36
Milan5.33
London11.8
Grand total13.16333

What I want:

 

CitiesMy Measure
Paris22.36
Milan5.33
London11.8
Grand total39.49

Hi @Anonymous 

 

You may try below measure:

Measure =
IF (
    HASONEVALUE ( 'CUBE'[Cities] ),
    [My new measure],
    SUMX ( VALUES ( 'CUBE'[Cities] ), [My new measure] )
)
