2. for every row, it evaluates utilizing the clear out context of the present row. three. It recalls the results of from each one row, and whilst performed, it provides all of them up. SUMX() in motion Returning to the subtotals instance, let’s examine the pivot back: determine 243 [Sales in line with Day] with Calendar[Year] and Products[ModelName] on Rows Now we write a brand new degree: [Sales in keeping with Day Totals upload Up] = IF(HASONEVALUE(Products[ModelName]), [Sales in step with Day], SUMX(VALUES(Products[ModelName]), [Sales in step with Day]) ) So if we’re within the context of a unmarried ModelName, it simply makes use of the [Sales in keeping with Day] degree just like the pivot already does. but if there's multiple ModelName, that implies we’re in a complete cellphone, and the SUMX() clause kicks in. notice that I used VALUES(Products[ModelName]) for the

argument. That shall we me be very particular – i need this SUMX() to step via all the distinctive values of ModelName from the present clear out context. If I distinctive the total items desk in its place (and no VALUES function), SUMX() could step via each row of the goods desk from the present clear out context, that can be a unique variety of rows. effects: determine 244 New degree: the totals are the sum of the person versions specified Stepthrough simply to force it domestic, let’s stroll in the course of the overview of the SUMX() section of the degree above, for the highlighted telephone within the pivot: determine 245 we will step via how the SUMX() clause of the degree arrived at $21,600 Following the three issues defined within the “anatomy of SUMX()” part: 1. SUMX() steps via each row in VALUES(Products[ModelName]). The clear out context supplied through the pivot for that reason is a totally unfiltered items desk simply because this telephone is Year=2001, Products=All (it has no “coordinates” within the pivot from the goods table). So VALUES(Products[ModelName]) returns each designated price of [ModelName] from the goods desk. what percentage values is that, truly? Let’s payment. [ModelName Values] = COUNTROWS(VALUES(Products[ModelName])) determine 246 that's 119 values, although we basically see three at the pivot lower than 2001 within the earlier screenshot! Why 119 as opposed to three? All 119 are evaluated even within the unique pivot, yet simply because basically three go back non-blank effects for [Sales in step with Day], that’s the entire pivot confirmed us. 2. for every of these 119 values, SUMX() evaluates the [Sales in line with Day] degree. The Year=2001 clear out context is maintained all through this procedure, for each row. however the Products[ModelName] clear out context alterations whenever SUMX() strikes to the following of the 119 rows. So it evaluates [Sales consistent with Day] with filter out context Year=2001, ModelName=”All-Purpose motorbike Stand”, and that returns clean, simply because that version was once no longer bought in 2001 (there aren't any rows within the revenues desk with Year=2001, ModelName=”All-Purpose motorcycle Stand”. ) Then it strikes directly to Year=2001, ModelName=”Bike Wash”, then Year=2001, ModelName=”Cable Lock”, and so on. basically 3 of these 119 rows in VALUES(Products[ModelName]) go back non-blank effects for [Sales according to Day], and people are the 3 we observed displayed at the unique pivot: “Mountain-100”, “Road-150”, and “Road-650”.
