It would be great if Grand Totals on a Matrix or Table would add up correctly to the sum of the rows when you include MEASURES in the visual. Currently the total on a measure consists of the measure function itself, instead of the sum of the rows above. PLEASE give us the option to toggle totals to be a simple aggregate of the rows above also.

Moving this idea to "under review" to mark that discussions are underway. For full transparency, we have started working on DAX calculations at the visual level. That feature will make changes that will serve as building blocks for other features, including but not limited to the one discussed in this idea: providing more flexibility for influencing what is shown on the total: the visual total, the "DAX" total, or another expression altogether.

Hence, the delivery of this Idea will be dependent on the DAX-calculations-on-a-visual feature.

You can spend billions on KI ... but it would be nice to fix the basics first.

I agree with everyone else here - please fix this. It is making self service BI impossible

Microsoft team, it has been 6 years and you are still working on it, when is the solution going to come out?

This answers so many questions which made me doubt myself and my own sanity. I ended up moving everything in Excel but that's not a walk in the park either. The fact that this is such an old issue and it is still not resolved blows my mind.

Debating whether to keep using Power BI as this issue has caused end users to question the integrity of data. The workarounds are unnecessary and cumbersome to calculate. The fact this hasn't been fixed in 5 plus years is not acceptable.

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

The standard method is completely backwards and counter intuitive. Why as a new user am I having to learn long winded work arounds for a problem which shouldn't even exist!?

I am surprised that it is not fixed yet.

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

This is a killer, in a negative way, in self service BI. End-users don't trust the data anymore.And it is impossible to foresee every table they are creating.What happens? They dump the data in Excel and build there own dashboards there
