Thank you in advance

Hi, @hhaimer 

According to your description, you want to calculate different values according to different conditions, you can use the switch(true()) function to achieve your logical judgment needs, if you want to count the number of rows, you can use the count() function to get the number of rows of the corresponding column.


If this method does not meet your needs, you can provide us with your special sample data and the desired output sample data in the form of tables, so that we can better help you solve the problem.

Thank you for your time and sharing, and thank you for your support and understanding of PowerBI! 


Best Regards,

Aniya Zhang
