divide one column by other

 

Hi All,

        I am new to power bi and am trying to divide two existing columns and get result into calculated column,but the results are incorrect.can someone please help.I tried to use below formula

 

%Complete = DIVIDE(Node[completed],Node[Total])

Hi @kan,

 

Is [Total] field in above screenshot an original field in dataset or a calculated column/measure? Please share us source data in dataset.

Hi

@v-yulgu-msftThanks for the reply.Following is my source code for dataset.Both Total and Completed are original fields and part of dataset and are grouped by node name.I am struck when trying to calculate completed/total  in power bi.

 

Source Code:

 

select ProjectId,region,state,milestonename as Nodemajormilestonename,nodemajormilestonedefaultsid,Total,completed
from (
select distinct p.WspNetworkId as projectid,p.regionid as region,p.networkstate as state,milestonename,nodemajormilestonedefaultsid,count(distinct m.projectnodeid) Total,
sum(case when actualmilestonedate is not null then 1 else 0 end) as completed
from dbo.ProjectMaster p
join
(
select
ProjectdesignId
,NodeName
,max(ProjectNodeId) ProjectNodeId
from dbo.ProjectNode
group by
ProjectDesignId
,NodeName
) n on (p.ProjectDesignId = n.ProjectDesignId)
join dbo.ProjectNodeMajorMilestone m on (n.ProjectNodeId = m.ProjectNodeId)
group by MilestoneName,p.WspNetworkId,p.regionid,p.networkstate,nodemajormilestonedefaultsid)x
order by projectid,nodemajormilestonedefaultsid

 

Following is my Source dataset:

Below is data tried to build in visualisation mode from datasets.here i used 

Complete = DIvide(Query1[completed],Query1[Total]  which is giving wrong results (might be data is summarized) ).For example for Preliminary Node Lock complete=2561/7701 =0.332 but is giving 37.56 which is wrong.

Thanks..

Hi @kan,

 

The wrong results might be caused by summarized data in visualization. 

 

Please try this measure:

%Complete =
DIVIDE ( SUM ( Node[completed] ), SUM ( Node[Total] ) )

Strange, are you sure you are creating a calculated column? I did this:

 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WCihKzcnMzcxLLKpU8MtPSVXwyU/OVtJRMjc3MARSRqZmhkqxOtFKnnnFBanJJZn5eQrO+bkFOaklqQhVJoZmSrGxAA==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Nodemajormilestonename = _t, Total = _t, completed = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Nodemajormilestonename", type text}, {"Total", Int64.Type}, {"completed", Int64.Type}})
in
    #"Changed Type"

And created this calculated column in that table and got the right answers:

 

%Complete = DIVIDE([completed],[Total])
