Total sum in Matrix

Hi,

 

I need help to get correct total sum in my Matrix, this should be done in DAX.

I have Pcs in carton from one table on article level, this works on all rows. I need some filter (I guess) to filter out the value 3000 in my DAX. As it is now it calculate 86900/3000=290, thats wrong., it should sum up the rows instead.

hi @Stabben23 

This is a measure totals problem. Very common. See this post about it

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

For your case, you could try this way:
measure =
VAR _table =
    SUMMARIZE (
        'Table',
        'Table'[Customer Group],
        'Table'[Articles],
        "_Cartons", [Cartons]
    )
RETURN
    SUMX ( _table, [_Cartons] )

Share the formula created in dax. If possible please share a sample pbix file after removing sensitive information.
Thanks

Can share DAX, Not pbix file.

TotalPcs =calculate(sumx(OOLINE;[OBORQT]) *1000;OCUSMA[OKCUNO] <> "2172";OOHEAD[OAORTP] <>"CRU" ;OOLINE[OBORST] <"66")
Cartons = divide([TotalPcs];sum(MIZTL2[STKRT]);0)
