## Count Total, based on condition from other table

Hi all,

I have a question. I want to counter the numbers of orders per categorie (Groups[Total amount between]).

I have 2 tables. 1 table is about the sales with the total amounts per order. The other table is about the groupings. An amount of 5.50 falls in the category 5.01 - 7.50 for example. What I want is to count the number of orders per category. So how often have orders been placed in the different categories.
I've been stuck for several days. I only get the total orders....

Here's my data.

I have many rows. This is a small part of the data.

Groupings table

 Key Min Max Total amount between 1 0 5 0 - 5 euro 2 5.01 7.50 5.01 - 7.50 euro 3 7.51 10 7.51 - 10.00 euro 4 10.01 12.5 10.01 - 12.50 euro 5 12.51 15 12.51 - 15.00 euro 6 15.01 17.5 15.01 - 17.50 euro

Sales table:

Only Total amount is relevant in this table.

 Key Order Amount Donation Amount Total amount .... .... .... 2.50 .... .... .... 2.50 .... .... .... 2.65 .... .... .... 5.50 .... .... .... 5.50 .... .... .... 7.81 .... .... .... 5.50 .... .... .... 8.00 .... .... .... 8.95 .... .... .... 9.00 .... .... .... 422.50 .... .... .... 424.00

What I want:

 Total amount between Count 0 - 5.00 3 5,01 - 7,50 3 7.51 - 10 4 ......... ......... 420.01 - 422.50 1 422.51 - 425.50 1

My measure now and what I get:

Count = CALCULATE(
COUNTROWS(Sales), FILTER(Groups, Sales[Total] >= Groups[Min] && Sales[Total] <= Groups[Max]))

I hope someone can help me, I have a deadline today.

Hey @Anonymous ,

you should set the min and max as variable. Like this you don't have the confusion with row and filter contexts.

Try the following approach:

``````Count =
VAR vMin = MIN( Groups[Min] )
VAR vMax = MAX( Groups[Max] )
RETURN
CALCULATE(
COUNTROWS( Sales ),
FILTER(
Sales,
Sales[Total amount] >= vMin && Sales[Total amount] <= vMax
)
)``````

If you need any help please let me know.
If I answered your question I would be happy if you could mark my post as a solution ✔️ and give it a thumbs up 👍
