How to get percentage?

Hello,

 

I have one column as shown below. I would like to add a second column such that each row is the %age of current traffic out of the aggregate traffic. The aggregate traffic value is infact the sum of all rows. ( question relates to Power query Excel)

 

Current traffic

You'll have tomodify the code in the Advanced Editor to add that step. Make sure that you update  #"Changed Type" if necessary to match the name of the previous step

allTraffic_ = List.Sum(#"Changed Type"[Current traffic])

@AIB, I tried a lot, but could not replicate in my file. Here I am sharing the file, if you can help. The column is "current traffic"

Ok, i pasted the code and analyzing all steps. What is not clear is the Alltraffic step as shown here. How do I replicate this step in my sheet ? This step is shown to occur before the custom column

Thanks, can you guide me or direct me to a resource on how to create query and place the M code. I am very new to the tool.

Hi @mfaisalk 

Place the following M code in a blank query to see the steps.

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMjJWitVBpwzNUSgjCGUIoQzAlAUSaY5EminFxgIA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"Current traffic" = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Current traffic", Int64.Type}}),
    allTraffic_ = List.Sum(#"Changed Type"[Current traffic]),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type", "Custom", each [Current traffic] / allTraffic_),
    #"Changed Type1" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Added Custom",{{"Custom", Percentage.Type}})
in
    #"Changed Type1"
