Count with second column

I have 3 columns (Investment, Investment Status, and Line Item Detail).  I need a DAX measure (I don't have access to the dataset) to see if an investment has more than one status.


InvestmentInvestment StatusLine Item Detail
ANot Approved1




So in this example I need to know that Investment A has more than 1 status and Investment B only has 1 status.

I have been trying to use SUMMARIZE to get a distinct set of investments and statuses, but when I use COUNTROWS I get 1 for each line.  I don't know how to compare the summarized table to the current row while only looking at the investment name.  Maybe that is not the right path to take though.

Measure=CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Sample[Investment Status]),ALLEXCEPT(Sample,Sample[Investment]))

That works  Thank you!  That was much simpler than the path I was headed down.

I think you're overcomplicating it.

If you create a table visual, drag the Investment on.  Create a measure using DISTINCTCOUNT on the Investment Status.

Add that to the visual.

That will give the distinct count of each investment.

If you want "1" or "more than 1" just alter the measure by putting the distinctcount in a variable, then use an 'if' to test the value > 1.

Let me know how you get on.

That would work if I didn't need need every field on the visualization.  I actually need all 3 columns in the viz plus the other column created from the measure.  I should have put that in the original description.
