## Power BI percentage of total by category

Let us see how we can display the percent of the total value by category in the Power Bi report,

In this example, we will use the financials data table, to display the COGS percentage of total value based on the Product category in Power BI.

- Log in to the Power Bi desktop and use the get data option to load data, once the data has been loaded click on the
**new measure**under the modeling tab. - Use the below-mentioned formula to find the COGS percentage of total value based on the Product category.

```
COGS Percentage =
Var Sumvalue = SUM(financials[COGS])
Var Category = CALCULATE ( SUM(financials[COGS]) , REMOVEFILTERS(financials[Product category]))
return
Sumvalue/Category
```

Where,

**COGS Percentage**= Measure Name**financials**= Table Name**COGS**,**Product category**= Column Names

Select the Power BI table visual from the visualization and drag-drop the created COGS Percentage measure value and product category field from the field pane to display the COGS percentage of total value based on the Product category as below:
