Hello friends, 

 

I have this table (Table1)

 

TypeOK
1Yes
2Yes
3NO
4NO
5Yes
6NO
7NO
8NO

 

How can I count the number of "Yes" and "No" in Power Pivot?

Im using COUNTAX in this way:

 

Number of YES:= COUNTAX (Table1; ([OK]="Yes")) 

 

I haven´t results with it... Could somebodi help me?

Thank you from Spain!

Im working in the pivot table. 

The colum [OK] is not calculated

@Josevi 
Please try

YES :=
CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ( Table1 ); ALL ( Table1 ); Table1[OK] = "Yes" )

It Works! great! thank you a lot!!

Now if I have date data, can I calculate the TOTALYTD? or I have to carry ou any modified in the values?

 

@Josevi 
For time intellegence functions always use a date table marked as date table. But I don't know how is this related to your orioginal query?

Yes, I have a date table created.

=TOTALYTD([YES]; calendar[Date])... but it doesn´t works,

new problem in my way

 

@Josevi 
Are you slicing by date? Can you please share a screenshot of the visual?

Of Course!

My friend where are you using this measure? When you say year to date you should be slicing by a date otherwise which date the function will consider?! The screenshot shows the power pivot table not the pivot table visual. The value show here is the grand total and the YTD has no meaning in the grand total! Please help me undestand what exactly are you trying to acheive. We can also connect via zoom or teams. I have some free time now if you wish.

Hi @Josevi 

is [OK] a measure or a column in the source data? How are you displying the result?

Hello tamerj1, thank you.

OK is the name of the Colum and  the values ("Yes" or "NO") of this colum are text format.

Do you need more information?

@Josevi 
Please try

YES :=
CALCULATE ( COUNTROWS ( Table1 ); Table1[OK] = "Yes" )

Thank you!

I´ve tried it but doesnt work...😓

@Josevi 
How are displaying the results? In a the same pivot table? or this is a calculated column?
