CompanyID Total_Sales
1 5
2 5
3 5
4 5
5 5


I have a measure Total_Sales. The total needs to be allocated to the parent company in another measure. The parent company has an ID of 1 in the example above. How can I get the sum of total_sales and assign it to measure Total_Parent where ID equals 1 as in the output below?


CompanyID Total_Sales Total_Parent
1 5 25
2 5 BLANK()
3 5 BLANK()
4 5 BLANK()
5 5 BLANK()

Thanks in advance.

I don't think you need another another measure but a company hierarchy table where it says the parent company for company IDs 1-5 is 1.

This is what I came up with:

ParentID=1

------------------

Total_Parent=
VAR
CurID=SELECTEDVALUE(tblCO[CompanyID])
RETURN

IF(HASONEVALUE(tblCO[ID]),
IF(curID=[ParentID],
CALCULATE([Total_Sales],ALL(tblCO[CompanyID])),
BLANK()
),
CALCULATE([Total_Sales],ALL(tblCO[CompanyID]))
)


Appears to give the desired results, but wondering if there is a more efficient way to do it.
