## Why are my totals not working?

I have a table with measures. I don't know why my totals are messed up?

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

I ended up creating a calculated column to solve the problem. I had to do the math in the column because the measure wasn't totalling properly.

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:

Would need to see your measure formula to be more specific.
