FILTER text column to only return text results

I have a text column which I'm trying to write a measure for in order to filter it:


Brag Status Count = CALCULATE(MAXA('UNION'[audit_results.BRAG STATUS]),FILTER('UNION','UNION'[Column 34] in {"Audit Results"}))
However I keep getting numeric results
can someone help me get the text results for this?

Can you try:

Brag Status Count = 
        CONCATENATEX(VALUES('UNION'[audit_results.BRAG STATUS]),'UNION'[audit_results.BRAG STATUS],"|"),
        'UNION'[Column 34] = "Audit Results"

@Neill_ , this should work try like

Brag Status Count = CALCULATE(MAX('UNION'[audit_results.BRAG STATUS]),FILTER('UNION','UNION'[Column 34] in {"Audit Results"}))


Can you share sample data and sample output in table format?
