# Why Table Total missing when using a filter with a high margin?

The formula below is used as an example in the video Mastering Dax calculations --> Calculate Statement --> Simple and advanced filters

Profit of High Margin customers = CALCULATE( [Total Profits] , FILTER( CustomerT, [Total Margin %] > 0.32))

Total Profits is calculated as Quantity * (Sales Unit Price - Cost Price) within a SUMX formula
Total Margin % = Total Profits / Total Sales

1. If you use this measure in a table, with the date in the rows, the Profit of High Margin Customers per row is correct, but the TOTAL is not if you select a significant period. Why not ?
2. If the margin in the Filter formula is increased from 32% to 52 %, the total in the table for this measure disappear completely, why ?

Hi,

1. Regarding the first question. The totals get the wrong answer sometimes because it takes the sum of profit of the period and divides it by the sales of the periode (instead of calculating a margin per row). But if you want to get a correct total, you can add another measure with a SUMMARIZE function and SUMX.
2. For the second i guess because the overall %margin (Total profil / Total sales) is under 52% thatâ€™s why it shows blank.
If u have a pbix file so that we can verify this, it would be better
