Calculated columns RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using a simple division I'm trying to show a A / B give C% in a Powerpivot table.

    My Dax formula can do this no problem, but when I add to my Power pivot it sums the Client %.

    Now, if I wasn't using the DataModel I would use a simple 'Calculated field' from the Powerpivot menu but it's greyed out.

    Can anyone advise how best to do this using the Data Model?

  • to do this, you have to create the C% as a measure in the data model, not as a calculated column.

    you can create the following measures:

    • total A:=calculate(sum([A]))
    • total B:=calculate(sum([B]))
    • C%:=calculate([total A] / [total B])
