The first time you use the calculated column, you are actually calculating ('Sales'[TaxRate1]/'Sales'[Product]) for each row of the sales table, and when you put it into the visualization, you actually get the sum of ('Sales'[TaxRate1]/'Sales'[Product]). What we actually want is the result of (SUM('Sales'[Taxrate1])/SUM('Sales'[Taxrate1])), which is different from the result of ('Sales'[TaxRate1]/'Sales'[Product]).

Hi,

Write these measures (not calculated column formulas)

Products = sum(Sales[Product])

Tax rate = sum(Sales[Tax rate1])

HST as a % of sales = divide([Tax rate],[Products])

Hope this helps.

product and tax rate are columns or measures? If columns try to divide the SUM of each
