    Re: DAX measure for percentage showing incorrect result

    Rather than remove your thread because you solved it yourself, you need to share that answer with members here - that is the WHOLE point of forums like this...to share ideas, suggestions and answers..

    Here is your original post...
    Can someone explain why I seem to be getting incorrect percentages in my pivot table.

    I've made some very small tables and then worked out what I think I should get back,
    I've attached these showing working out , so I could well have made an error there ?

    I haven't formatted the numbers as percentages as I thought it might be due to rounding,
    The two measure is question are Pcent Overall Sales and Overall M .

    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools

    Yes , but the results I was getting weren't incorrect, when I was checking one result manually to see if it was the same as what the pivot table was returning I was overlooking part of the calculation.
    So I don't really have anything to share apart from the fact that I can't add up.

    Then you should have said so.

    In future do NOT remove any part of the thread - simply state what you have found and mark it as solved.
