Why is the total saying zero?

Does anyone know why the total value I am getting could be saying zero?

Hi @HamidBee,


Measures respect the context of the Total row and is calculated within that context. Therefore, a Measure used in a column in a table visualization will likely have an unexpected value in the Total column.


Please consider sharing more details about it. Such as an expression for this measure. And it would be great if there was a sample file without any sensitive information here.


Here are some references that may be helpful.

Thank you for your reply. I did manage to solve this a few days ago. Although, I don't recall exactly what I did. I was troubleshooting and got it to work. It may be best, if you can, to close this thread just to avoid any confusion. Thanks.

The column was calculated using a nested conditional equation. I did not create a variable or ask it to sum anythin. How can I adapt this to show the total?
