## Power bi show value as percentage of total

Here we will see how to show value as percentage of total in power bi.

• We have two table, one is sales table and other is product data table. By using sales table first we will find the total sales.
• Next we will find the percent of sales of all product. To do this we need to devide every single number in Sales by the total. For this we will create a new measure i.e EverySales.
• The every sales measure, reference the total sales inside CALCULATE, and then use the ALL function with the product name, though it can remove filter from the dimension
• Then we will find the percent of total, by deviding total sales by every sales in power bi.

Sales table

Product table

• We will create a measure in sales table to calculate the total sales.
• Click on the measure from the ribbon in power bi desktop.
• Write the Dax formula:
``Total sales = SUM('Sales data'[Sales])``
• Next we will find the every sales by using measure, for this click on the new measure

• The Dax formula is:
``%CostofMaterial = CALCULATE ( SUM ( Production[Cost of material]) ) / CALCULATE ( SUM ( Production[Cost of Material] ), ALLEXCEPT ( Production, Production[Production] ) )``
• Now we will find the total cost of material and machine in power bi desktop.
• Click on the new measure then write the Dax formula:
``TotalCost = CALCULATE ( SUM ( Production[Cost of Machine] ) ) + CALCULATE ( SUM ( Production[Cost of Material] ) )``
• Next we will find the percentage of total cost by using measure.
• Click on the new measure, then write the Dax formula:
``%TotalCost = CALCULATE ( [TotalCost] ) / CALCULATE ( [TotalCost], ALLEXCEPT ( Production, Production[Production] ) )``
• Now click on the %cost of machine, measure tools will open in the ribbon, change the format of the measure general to percentage.
• Similarly change the percentage of cost of material and percentage of total cost.

In the below screenshot, you can see the Power bi show value as a percentage of subtotal.

• Load the data using get data
• So first, we will create a measure to calculate the Total revenue.
• Click on the new measure from the ribbon.
• Then write the below measure:
``Total revenue = SUM('Table'[Revenue])``
• Now we will use the total revenue to calculate the percentage of revenue for each region using measure.
• Click on the New measure from the ribbon.
• Then write the below measure:
``````% of revenue on region = DIVIDE(SUMX('Table', [Total revenue]),

SUMX(ALLSELECTED('Table'), [Total revenue]))``````
• Now click on the measure in the field pane, measure tool will open in the ribbon.
• Then in the format section, change the format to percentage.
• Now to check the measure, select the table visual from the visualization pane.
• In the value field, drag and drop the Region column, Revenue column and % of revenu on each region measure.

This is an example of a Power bi measure percentage column total.

## Power bi measure percentage of total with filter

Here we will see how to calculate the percentage of the total value based on each region and filter by company.

We will use the below sample table to calculate the percentage of the total value and then filter with the company using a measure

• Load the data using get data.
• Now we will create a measure which will calculate the percentage of value.
• Click on the New measure from the ribbon.
• The measure is:
``````% ShareValue =
VAR Volume =
SUM('Table 2'[Value])
VAR AllVolume =
CALCULATE ( SUM('Table 2'[Value]),ALLEXCEPT('Table 2', 'Table 2'[Region]) )

RETURN
DIVIDE ( Volume, AllVolume )``````
• Now to check the measure, select the table visual from the visualization pane.
• In the value field, drag and drop the region column, company column, value column, and % ShareValue measure from the field pane.

## Power bi measure percentage of group

Here we will see how to calculate the percentage of sales based on the group using the measure in power bi.

We will use the below sample table to calculate the percentage for multiple levels of groups of sales i.e item, category, and market.

• So first, create 3 measures for the multiple level i.e. 3 measure for item, category and market. Then we will use the if condition to show 3 level of percentage in matrix visual.
• Load the data using get data from the ribbon in power bi.
• So first we will create the measure to calculate the percentage for the smallest level i.e. item.
• Click on the new measure from the ribbon.
• Then write the below measure:
``level3 % = DIVIDE(SUM('Sales Data'[Sales]),CALCULATE(SUM('Sales Data'[Sales]),ALLSELECTED('Sales Data'[Item])  ) )``
• Create another measure to find the percentage for second level i.e. category.
• Click on the new measure from the ribbon
• Then write the below measure:
``level2 % = DIVIDE(SUM('Sales Data'[Sales]),CALCULATE(SUM('Sales Data'[Sales]),ALLSELECTED('Sales Data'[Category])  ) )``
• Now we will create another measure to calculate the percentage for 1st level i.e. Market.
• Click on the new measure from the ribbon.
• Then write the below measure:
``level1 % = DIVIDE(SUM('Sales Data'[Sales]),CALCULATE(SUM('Sales Data'[Sales]),ALLSELECTED('Sales Data'[Market])  ) )``
• So in level1( market) measure the total percentage is 100% or 1, so we will use the if condition to repace this value to its pecentage of previous level or level2( category).
• For this create the new measure for level 2 i.e. Market.
• Click on the new measure from the ribbon.
• Then write the below measure:
``Level2 = if([level3 %]=1 , [level2 %],[level3 %])``
• Now, we finally create a measure for level1 to show the percentage of each group.
• Click on the new measure from the ribbon.
• Then write the below measure:
``````group% = if([Level2]= 1,[level1 %] ,[Level2])
``````
• Now to check the measure, select the matrix visual from the visualization pane.
• In the rows field, drag and drop the Market, category and items columns from the field pane.
• In the value field, drag and drop the sales column and group % measure from the field pane.
