## Percent of Total on Table Chart

Can someone give me some assistance in displaying the percentage of total for a column on a table chart? I have a table with a count of employees by gender and this works fine on a pie chart using %_PERCENT_OF_TOTAL however someone would like it in a table.

Thanks.

## Re: Percent of Total on Table Chart

You'll need to edit your ETL process to add a column that provides the 'Total' for that metric and repeats it for each row.

Example:

Measure    Total

1                 10

4                 10

5                 10

Then at the card level you can do

SUM(`Measure`) / MAX(`Total`) * 100

That will give the 'Percent of Total' you're looking for.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

That being said.  I think that a cross table is a fairly common analytical tool that seems to be missing from Domo currently.  I think I'll add this as a feature request.  Cross Table Card

## Re: Percent of Total on Table Chart

Hello, Valiant,

I did the % calculation as you suggested and got the %.  However, for my table card, if I only want to see top 10 rows and % calcualtion is based on the total of the top10.  Is there a way to do this?

Thank you.

You can use SQL functions in Beastmode (not documented though).

Try this:

SUM('field name')/SUM(SUM('field name')) OVER ()

If you haven't worked with Windowed Functions before, I give a longer (15min) answer on YouTube for a related use case.
