# Summary number for non-distinct rows

⚪️

Hi,

We have 4 sales regions & each has a budget amount. I need to do a summary number that uses the sum of those 4 budgets. 2 regions have the same budget amount so COUNT(DISTINCT) won't work. Each row of the dataset details an expense for a labeled region and that row also contains that region's budget amount (I joined the budget table with the sales table).

I have a card for each region that filters for just that region and I made a beast mode for the summary field to show the amount of budget they have used so far. This works fine for the individual region cards. But on a card I made (with no filter) to summarize all the regions together, the summary number goes to a crazy 674%. Is there a better way to get the usage % for all regions?

This is my current beast mode:

(CONCAT(ROUND(SUM(`ExpenseAmount`) /

((CASE WHEN `Region` = 'Northwest' THEN MIN(`Budget`) ELSE 0 END)

+(CASE WHEN `Region` = 'Southwest' THEN MIN(`Budget`) ELSE 0 END)

+(CASE WHEN `Region` = 'Northeast' THEN MIN(`Budget`) ELSE 0 END)

+(CASE WHEN `Region` = 'Southeast' THEN MIN(`Budget`) ELSE 0 END))

*100,0),'% Usage'))

Thanks, Angela

Don't JOIN Budget to Actuals. APPEND Budget to Actuals.

By Appending you'll avoid duplication and can avoid 'crazy math'.

I may not be understanding your data correctly, but couldn't you just do SUM(`Budget`) for your denominator rather than doing a case statement for the 4 regions? Like this:

```(CONCAT(ROUND((SUM(`ExpenseAmount`) /  SUM(`Budget`)) *100,0),'% Usage'))
```
