## Column total - not the sum i'm after

Hi all!

I am working on a production total based on work day (column 1) and production target (tons/day) (column 2)

so as shown below,

Jan would be 18 days x 273t/day = 4900t/day (column 3)

Each row in column 3 is calculated correctly, but I am wanting the column total to be the sum of each row of column 3 (total = 69900t).

Thanks heaps!

Silvia

@ssze First, please vote for this idea: https://ideas.powerbi.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=082203f1-594f-4ba7-ac87-bb91096c742e

This looks like a measure totals problem. Very common. See my post about it here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/DAX-Commands-and-Tips/Dealing-with-Measure-Totals/td-p/63376

Also, this Quick Measure, Measure Totals, The Final Word should get you what you need:

Thanks heaps @Greg_Deckler  - I think I can see the concept! I had a bit of a play but still struggle to get it to work because my workday column is a sum from a powerBI calendar function plus an extra calculated column (i.e. from a separate table). I am struggling to get the 2 to link... do you have some examples of working this through 2 separate but related tables?

(also, as per your suggestion, voted for the idea - hope that goes through)
