Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the Power BI file in the above folder.  It shows the following matrix:

Sales matrix

Sales by environment and centre type

Your task is to use the CALCULATE function in an expression to return the following measure:

(Total sales) / (Total sales, but with the Environment constraint removed)

With this in mind, create a new measure in the All measures table called All environment contribution, and change your matrix to display this:

Environment contributions

Reassuringly, your environmental contributions should sum to 100% for each row.

Create and display another measure called Grand total contribution which shows the ratio of sales to sales for all environments and all centre types:

Grand total matrix

Again reassuringly your grand total should be 100%.

You need to use the ALL function twice, to remove the environment constraint and the centre type constraint.

Save this file as No constraints, then close it down.
