how is calculated the total of a quick measure month over month change?

Hi team,

 

i have a doubt about how its calculated the total of a quick measure of a month to month change.

i have a table that have a sales as a column value and months (January to Dicember) of 2019 as a each rows, an i created a quick measure that calculeted the changes of a month vs previos month. if we see the last row in the table, it is a total that have in the first cell a sum of each sales month, and the other have a percent.

 

My question is about this percent, because its not the average of the previous changes of the months, and its not a sum of the previous of changes of the months, so whats mean this percent?

 

thanks for yours answers.

Please try this pattern to get a more meaningful number in your "Total".

 

NewMeasure = AVERAGEX(VALUES('Date'[Month]), [yourcurrentMOMmeasure])

 

This will show the correct value in both your month rows and give you an average in the "Total".

 

If this works for you, please mark it as solution.  Kudos are appreciated too.  Please let me know if not.
