Help with measurement

Hello all,

 

The calculation i found online didn't work so i thought i will try here. I am new to power bi. I have 2 colums in my bi, one with time spent and another with diffrent operation type (maybe 15 diffrent items) and now i need to calculate sum but for each category. How can i do this?

I use the f formaula belowe but it didnt work. Thank you for your help!

=CALCULATE(SUM(Table6[Value]),ALLEXCEPT(Table6,Table6[Category]))

@Greg_Deckler , thanks for your concern about the problem, and i want to offer some more information for user to refer to.

hello @Just2431 , based on your description, you just need to create the following measure

Measure = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Time Spent]),ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Operation]))

Output

@Just2431 Sorry, having trouble following, can you post sample data as text and expected output?

2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.
