One case is the Sum of Leaves (summing only the leaves of a parent-child hierarchy) and the other is the Sum of Children (computes all the nodes that are descendants of the current node, excluding the value of the current node).</p> <p>It is always more interesting the fact that DAX can perform calculation over hierarchies, without having specific commands to navigate in a hierarchical structure. The results is not so easy to write, but it works and is probably pretty efficient.</p>
