Use SUMMARIZE table within weighted median calculation


I have the following DAX working CORRECTLY to calculate weighted median. It has two parts: first to create an aggregate table based on ID and ORG, and two calculated columns. Then, try to find the median paid amount based on the summarised table using a quite complex formula.


Is there a way that I can simplify this to put the SUMMARIZE function as a temporary thing inside the 'MedianPAID' measure?


PaymentSummaryTable = SUMMARIZE('Payment Table',
'Payment Table'[ID],
'Payment Table'[ORG],
"ORG_PAID",SUM('Payment Table'[PAID]),
"ORG_Weight",MIN('Payment Table'[WEIGHTS]))

MedianPAID=(MINX(FILTER(VALUES('PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_PAID]), CALCULATE(SUM('PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_Weight]),'PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_PAID]<=EARLIER('PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_PAID]))>SUM('PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_Weight])/2),
+MINX(FILTER(VALUES('PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_PAID]), CALCULATE(SUM('PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_Weight]),'PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_PAID]<=EARLIER('PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_PAID]))>(SUM('PaymentSummaryTable'[ORG_Weight])-1)/2),


UPDATE: Here is the link to the Sample Data with the current set-up.

@Ibendlin Thanks for the suggestion!
