Grand Total

How can I create a calculated field that will give me the grand total of a column? For instance, if I have a row that has 200, 300, 500, 600, how do I get the Grand Total?

I have already used the wrench under Column Options as % of Total so, I can't use that option.

Hi Derrek,

I generally recommend using the "All Member". This will allow the proper aggregation function from the measure to be applied to your total. This may cause your % of Total to not display the desired results and you may be required to create a new measure to display the % of Total instead of using the column summary option. The summary options will base their results on the data inside of the table, not on the data behind the table. In some basic cases, they summary options will give the desired results, but in more complicated queries, they will not.
