## Calculate measure with a filter

Hi everyone,

I am trying to create 9 box view. In particular I am looking at the calculaled field (headcount %) that changes depending on the filters applied. for instance, I have a total headcount of 2596 and in a specific group I have a pool of 18 employees the % headcount is 18/2596  but how could I do it that when I applied a filter the % is calculated based on the specific headcount and not on the total one? And that this calculation applies to other 9 different tables?

Thank you

Miriam

@miriambb Maybe:

``````% HC = DIVIDE(CALCULATE(SUM(Euro1[Headcount])),
CALCULATE(SUM(Euro1[Headcount]),ALLEXCEPT(Euro1,Euro1[Department]))) + 0 ``````

@Greg_Deckler thank you and my apologies,

this is our calculated field

% HC = DIVIDE(CALCULATE(SUM(Euro1[Headcount])),

we would like any filters such as Department so the % is calculated it based on that headcount rather than from the total headcount as it is now.

Thank you
and please let me know if this helps
