How to count Matching values in One Column based on values in another Column

Good Morning, 

 

I am trying to determine how I can get a count of a matching data fields within 1 column based on another column in order to eventually use it down the line as as a filter in my viual to filter to Mono-line policies. 

 

Essentially I have a table with all active policy data including the Customer Number.  I want to find how many policies are assigned to each Customer Number (as there can be multiple policies to each customer):

 

Customer Number           Policy Status      Policy Number 

1                                         A                       123

2                                         A                       124

1                                         C                       125

1                                         Q                       126

2                                         A                       127

4                                         Q                       128

3                                         A                        129

 

So in the above example the count of Customer 1 would be "3", Customer 2 would be "2" and Customer 3/4 would both be "1" : 

 

How can I return this count so I can use it as a filter on my viusal later?  Thank you!

Hi,

 

If you want your count by Customer and not by Policy, then I think it should be a calculated column as advised by Tamerj1, but with this :

Number Policy = CALCULATE( COUNT(TabPolicy[Policy Number ]) ,
ALLEXCEPT(TabPolicy ,TabPolicy[Customer Number] ) )
 
Or as a measure it would be :
Count of Policy = 

VAR CurrentCustomer = SELECTEDVALUE( TabPolicy[Customer Number] )

RETURN

CALCULATE( COUNT( TabPolicy[Policy Number ] ) , TabPolicy[Customer Number] = CurrentCustomer )
But it will not be as easy to filter as a column.
Another solution would be to do a pre consolidated table :
Table Number of Policy = 

SUMMARIZECOLUMNS(TabPolicy[Customer Number] , "Count Policy" ,

COUNT(TabPolicy[Policy Number ] ) )
 
Let us know which solution you'll adopt 😉

Hi @amarris 

you can create a new calculated column 

COUNTROWS ( 

CALCULATETABLE (

Table,

ALLEXCEPT ( Table, Table[Policy Number] ),

)

)
