## Calculate Distinct values

Hi there,

Just wondering if someone can help with the below:

I want to calculate distinct value for my measure

Serious Incident Total =

CALCULATE(
[Total Incidents] - [Total Not Serious Incidents],
FILTER(Forms,NOT(ISBLANK(Forms[Category])))
)

Total Not Serious Incidents =
CALCULATE(
DISTINCTCOUNT(Forms[itrak_formid]),
FILTER(Forms,Forms[Category]= "Not Serious")
)

Total Incidents =
CALCULATE(
DISTINCTCOUNT(Forms[itrak_formid]),
FILTER('Forms',Forms[Form Type] = "Incident & Investigation")
)

This should get you the result you wanted- worked for my test:

``````Serious Incident Total =
VAR _Incidents = CALCULATETABLE(
DISTINCT( Forms[itrak_formid] ),
Forms[Form Type] = "Incident & Investigation"
)
VAR _NotSerious = CALCULATETABLE(
DISTINCT( Forms[itrak_formid] ),
Forms[Category] = "Not Serious"
)

RETURN
COUNTROWS(
EXCEPT( _Incidents, _NotSerious )
)``````

We create a table of distinct incidents (_Incidents), a table of distinct not serious forms (_NotSerious),

Remove IDs that appear in _NotSerious from _Incidents,

And count the rows on the resulting table.

Hi, @chavanr

Could you please consider sharing more details about it and posting expected result so it is clear on what needs to be implemented?  And It would be great if there is a sample file without any sesentive information here.

It makes it easier to give you a solution.

1. Sample (dummy dataset) data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.

@chavanr , if want distinct values a measure first you need to get a grouping for that

like

measure =

var _tab = summarize(Forms,Forms[Column], "_1",[Total Incidents ])

return

countx(values(_tab[_1],[_1])

measure =

var _tab = summarize(Forms,Forms[Column], "_1",[Total Incidents ])

return

countx(summarize(_tab, _tab[_1],[_1])
